The DJI Goggles RE are first person view (FPV) goggles that allow you to use the drone’s camera as your eyes in the sky. It gives you a bird’s eye view and it’s one of the best drone experiences you can have.

DJI began their Black Friday sale on November 18th and it will continue until the day after Cyber Monday.
DJI Drone Comparison
The Mavic Air is the best general purpose drone that you can buy right now. It offers a fantastic flight time of 21 minutes. This is impressive given its small size. You can fit it in your pocket, thanks to the propellers that fold into the body.
The Mavic Air has a 3-axis 4K camera that can shoot video at 30 frames per second (FPS). It can take photographs with 12 MP resolution. The max flight range is 2.4 miles (4 km) with the Air.
The Spark is a solid drone for those interested in getting their first quadcopter. It has a flight time of 16 minutes and a 1080p 2 axis camera. The maximum range of the Spark is 1.2 miles (2 km) when you use the controller. The great thing about this year’s Spark deal is that it’s not only cheaper, but it also includes the controller. You can also control the Spark with just your phone.
The Tello is a programmable drone that’s perfect for kids and people interested in technology. You can control it with your phone or even a laptop. It has a flight time of 13 minutes, which is fantastic for this price range. It has a 720p camera that you can use.
Where’s the Mavic 2
It would have been nice for DJI to discount the Mavic 2 for Black Friday but we knew that there was little chance of that happening. The Mavic 2 was just released a few months ago and DJI never discounts new products. That’s why we were surprised to see that the Mavic Air is discounted. It came out in January of this year.
Overall, DJI has released excellent Black Friday deals this year. DJI is the Apple of the drone industry and they don’t often discount their products.
