DJI Spark Stories June 21

DJI Spark out of stock! We already know that the DJI Spark 2 event that was scheduled for July 23rd has been postponed indefinitely. However, we have now learned that for some time the DJI Spark (both red and white editions) has been out of stock on DJI’s official online store. No word on whether this mini-drone will come back in stock at some point in time. The drone was launched in 2017 and has been due for replacement. Will the DJI Spark go the way of the dodo? I mean, the way of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro? I don’t know. What I do know, is that at this point many people are wondering if DJI will release any new drone in 2019 at all.
