This essentially means your footage is not going to be shaky and will be isolated from the aberrations in the drone’s flight. All of DJI’s other drones come with built in 3-axis stabilization that offers even more stability. For those wondering, the difference between 2-axis and 3-axis stabilization is essentially that 2-axis stabilization has two motors to stabilize video from the effects of pitch and roll while 3-axis stabilization has three motors to stabilize the video from the effects of pitch, roll, and yaw. 3-axis stabilization is better, but uses more battery and is heavier.
The 2-axis stabilization is well suited to a small drone like the Spark because it extends the small drone’s battery life and does not over encumber it. The stabilization has proven to be able to withstand mild winds even though it is such a tiny drone. Its rotors are very powerful and keep it in the area very effectively. The built in stabilization should be enough to handle most flights, but more extreme winds and higher speeds may cause a noticeable shake in video footage.
