DJI is releasing a new firmware update for the Spark camera drone, and this is one update that Spark owners will not want to ignore. If you fail to properly update your Spark, DJI will disable it and prevent it from flying at all.
Earlier this year, there were some reports of DJI Spark drones falling out of the sky. This came just month after GoPro Karma drones were found to lose power, leading GoPro to recall and relaunch the Karma.
But while the GoPro Karma’s issues were caused by a faulty physical battery clasp, the DJI Spark’s problem appears to be software based and something that can be remedied with a firmware update.
