Cool Air Spark Pro

weighs just 15 ounce, ,
Air is a jacket pocket drone that fly’s itself.

Air $799. Spark $499. Pro $999

For me the air sounds nice but $200 more and you get the Pro 2

Air is tiny, a little less then size of a Mavic Pro and half the weight at just 15 ounces.
When folded up, it's about the size of a paperback novel.

4K video and 12-megapixel stills
32-megapixel panorama
newly designed, three-axis stabilizing gimbal.
Flight time 21 minutes
antennas in the landing gear
flight range of 2.4 miles
42 mph, a smidge faster than the Mavic Pro, and 11 mph faster than the Spark.
new image-capture tricks that let you take spherical panoramas, and a couple of new flavors of epic zoom-in shots
gesture controls just like the Spark, so you can command it to take off and follow you around by moving your hands.
selfie by forming a "picture frame" with your thumbs and forefingers.
Air's obstacle-avoidance tech seems on par with the high end of dronedom
Sensors front, back, and sides keeping Air from crashing into walls, cars, power lines, and the pilot (you).

New software DJI developed for Air uses the onboard cameras to scan the area in front of the Mavic Air, then plans a flight path before it even approaches any obstacles. The pilot just pushes the controller's joystick forward,
Air looks good but if I drop an extra $200 I could get the better Mavic Pro. So which to buy?
