the moment, the best drone with face recognition is definitely DJI Spark. This feature is a part of Spark’s identity and functions with the entire system in a way never seen before. Simply tap DJI Spark when it is pointing towards you and when it turns on, facial recognition will boot up as well and immediately scan your face. After that Spark will rise up and the fun can begin…
CAMERA AND FEATURES
Out of this entire bunch, DJI Spark is the only drone whose FHD-ready camera runs on a hardware stabilization system. Yup, it is true – this little fella sports a fully fledged gimbal. Not a 3-axis one though – DJI Spark’s gimbal is just 2-axis, but it’s still more than enough to give you full control over the scenery. An extra dose of smoothness and anti-vibration in your aerial videos will give you a world of good too, but that’s to expect from a premium facial recognition drone such as this one.
Also, it is safe to say DJI Spark promotes the biggest feature list out of all drones showcased here. There is fluent GPS coverage as well as a huge array of autonomous flight options that will make aerial photography a simple task. Gesture controls are here too, as well as PalmLaunch and PalmControl which make a solid handsfree controlling mechanism. All in all, if you are looking for a feature-packed drone with facial recognition, look no further because DJI Spark can provide!
Last but not least (not by a long shot, if we are being honest here) – DJI Spark specifications are on the table. Starting off with operating range, DJI Spark doesn’t feature OcuSync which means its standard range isn’t anything special. Barely above average in contrast to all 3 drones above. However, DJI Spark Fly More Combo fixes that thanks to the provided controller which boosts the range up to 2 kilometers. Now that’s quite the distance for this little birdie, right?! Airtime goes a lot above the average 10 minutes. More precisely, DJI Spark can endure approximately 15 minutes in the air without breaking a sweat.
In most cases, facial recognition systems use data gathered from the camera and analyze it through comprehensive algorithms to decide whether or not there’s a face in the frame. So technically, they don’t work on the same principle as, for example, Apple’s new tech. Apple’s facial recognition efforts are focused on security while drones are only interested in improving their autonomous flight ability.
