The DJI Spark is a compact package that allows you to take it anywhere, but does not scrimp on the features. The drone package includes an HD camera that allows you to take 12MP photos and 1080p videos at 30 fps. A 2-axis mechanical gimbal ensures that you can capture high quality shots, devoid of the effects of vibrations and movement.
The drone can be controlled with your phone. The Spark has an operating range of 100m which can be extended with the optional controller that you can get with the Fly More bundle. DJI’s unique Gesture Control provides a quick way to launch the Spark, and to capture selfies, group pictures, and videos. The Gesture Control might feel clunky at times, but it is a cool idea with tons of potential.
The Fly More Combo includes a remote control for smoother flight controls, additional spare propellers, removable propeller guards, a spare battery, a battery charging hub, and a shoulder bag. The remote control also allows you to fly further than the Wi-Fi-connection to your smart phone will allow. You can fly longer with the additional battery and charging them will be much more convenient with the charging hub. Should you damage your propellers, having spare propellers will ensure that you can continue flying.
If you want the Fly More Combo you can get it online only. Sam’s Club has it on November 24 and Newegg has it from November 20 to November 25. You save the same $100, but you get more stuff. The retail price is $699 and you can get it for $599 on Black Friday.
The DJI Spark is a small drone that packs a ton of features. It is an extremely agile and fast drone, but still quite stable for its small size. The Spark exceptionally shines with its HD camera and gimbal, providing high quality photography even for beginners. In fact, the Spark seems to cater specifically to the beginner demographics. If you’re on the fence on whether you want to spend money on a professional-grade DJI drone and, then the DJI Spark with is perfect for you.

The DJI Mavic Pro comes packed with several features in such a small package. This is the smallest drone that comes equipped with a 4K camera, and can even be folded down to the size of a water bottle, giving you maximum portability. The whole drone weighs just a little over one and a half pounds.
The included remote control is also one of the smallest, and comes with a small LCD screen. This means you won’t have to download a mobile app and sync the drone’s camera to your phone to have the experience of a live video feed. The video interface even provides flight data such as altitude and distance, and gives you a little warning message should you stray too far.
The DJI Mavic Pro can also be synced to your phone through a Wi-Fi connection, giving you the option to control your drone and view the live video feed through your smart phone. Of course, controlling the drone through your smart phone is not as refined as when you use the remote control, and the Wi-Fi communication reduces your effective range. However, this is still a nice option when you just want to fly casually and without the extra baggage of the remote control.
The camera and gimbal of the DJI Mavic Pro is very similar to that of DJI’s flagship model, the Phantom. Capturing 4k video and 12MP photos is a breeze with the drone’s auto-stabilization function. The Mavic Pro doesn’t have as wide a field of view as the Phantom, but also comes equipped with obstacle detection technology, keeping it safe from crashes. The gesture control of the DJI Spark model can also be found in Mavic Pro.
Due to its small size, the DJI Mavic Pro is not fit for flying in strong winds. This is something to keep in mind when flying at long distances, as the Mavic Pro may have a hard time coming back. However, the ability to warn you of strong winds and of critical battery levels keeps the pilot completely aware of the when to call the drone back.
For an additional cost, you can get the DJI Mavic Pro Fly More Combo, which comes with an additional 2 spare batteries, spare propellers, a battery charging hub, a car charger, and a shoulder bag. The DJI Mavic Pro combo retails for $1299.99 but can be purchased for $1149.99 at Best Buy and Newegg.
The power of the DJI Mavic Pro belies its small size. With an ability to fly at 40mph for a maximum of 27 minutes, your flight experience will not be short-changed. A state-of-the art HD camera combined with a built-in gimbal and auto-stabilization system ensures that you get professional-grade photos and videos anytime.
The DJI Mavic Pro represents the ultimate mixture of portability and power. It can be very handy in situations where using a large drone would be impractical. At its price range, the DJI Mavic Pro is simply one of the best options.
3. DJI Phantom 4
The DJI Phantom 4 is part of DJI’s flagship Phantom series. It’s their most popular and longest lasting drone line. The DJI Spark and Mavic Pro are both new additions to the company’s fleet.
For those looking to score a DJI Phantom 4 drone for Black Friday, there are none to report yet. We will update this to reflect any new deals as they pop up. There’s hope that DJI will release a Black Friday deal for the Phantom 4 as they mentioned in an email blast that people can “Save up to $150 on Mavic Pro, Spark, and Phantom 4 drones!”. More information should be released by November 20th. Amazon’s list price for the Phantom 4 is $1199.00 and it is currently selling for $899.00, which is 25% off. It’s unclear if this is a Black Friday sale – since prices have been lower on Phantom 4 for several months. Either way, this is a good price for the Phantom 4 drone.
DJI will give a free battery with the purchase of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro ($1499) or DJI Phantom 4 Advanced ($1199). Prices for those drones will stay the same but DJI will include a battery that’s worth $169 for free. This is for purchases on their site only (please check the links above).
4. DJI Goggles
DJI has confirmed that there will be a $50 discount on DJI Goggles, which means they will cost $399. A drone must be purchased with the Goggles to get the discount.
DJI Goggles are extremely high-quality and will let you fly your drone using first-person-view (FPV). FPV lets you use the drone’s camera as your eyes and fly with a bird’s eye view. It’s a lot of fun and getting a discount on it makes it that much better.
5. DJI Osmo Deals
DJI’s Osmo gimbals are expected to be on sale this year. The Osmo Mobile will be $100 cheaper, coming down to $199. It can also be purchased from Best Buy. The high-end Osmo+ will be $559, which is $90 off of its regular price.
