I received today my new DJI Spark quad-copter and made a panoramic 
aerial image with it:

This aircraft is so small and light that some local regulations are not 
even applicable for it, as the they are mostly for the UAVs from 0.5 kg 
up to 30 kg (though the common sense and good piloting are always 
applicable). Nevertheless the image is of a surprisingly good quality 
for a cloudy day, and since it is panoramic it covers quite a large area.

The 21 aerial photos for a panoramic image are taken automatically 
during a flight, and then they are stitched together by the DJI Media 
Maker software on a PC.

Best regards,

Oleksiy
