In today’s video, we see the DJI Spark rise to new heights in the Himalayas in Nepal. The tiniest drone from DJI keeps surprising us because according to the specs on the DJI website the maximum service ceiling above sea level is 13,123 feet (4,000 m). Some of the footage is probably below that ceiling but some other footage seems to be potentially much higher than that. Just as a reference, the base camp at the foot of Mount Everest is at an elevation of 17,600 feet (5,380 m). I don’t know exactly where this video was shot but my guess is that the Spark can fly higher than the ceiling indicated by DJI. Does anybody recognize where in Nepal this footage may have been taken? I think this shot may be taken in Namche Bazaar, which is at 11,286 (3,440 m) but I am not entirely sure.
