DJI Has a Black Friday Sale on Mavic Air, Spark, and Tello Drones
DJI has released their Black Friday deals for 2018. As part of those deals, you can expect to get a discount on the Mavic Air, Spark, and Tello drones. Let’s take a look at how much you can save.
- Mavic Air for $699 (save $100, was $799)
- Mavic Air Fly More Combo for $899 (save $100, was $999)
- Spark for $359 (save $40, was $399)
- Spark Fly More Combo $459 (save $90, was $549)
- DJI Tello $79 (save $20, was $99)
- DJI Tello Boost Combo $99 (save $50, was $149)
DJI’s Black Friday has started on November 18th and it will continue until November 27th, the day after Cyber Monday.
The Fly More Combos come with two additional batteries, a carrying case, and numerous other accessories. DJI batteries are expensive, so they are worth considering. The DJI Tello Boost Combo gives you two additional batteries.
As you can see, DJI has focused their Black Friday sale on beginner-friendly models. This is not a surprise. Last year, the company reduced the Spark and the Mavic Pro. We were surprised to see the Mavic Air on sale since it was only just released in January. The Mavic 2 will not be discounted through the holiday season since it came out a month ago. DJI never puts their premium models like the Inspire 2 on sale.
In addition to these savings, the DJI Goggles RE have been reduced t0 $449. This is a savings of $100 from the retail price of $549. RE stands for racing edition, and these are the best FPV goggles you can get that will allow you to use the drone’s camera as your eyes. They have extremely low latency and offer high-resolution too.
Which of these drones is the best?
The DJI Mavic Air is the most powerful drone of the bunch. It’s a phenomenal drone that offers great value for money for everyday users. That’s because it’s tiny and the arms fold into the body to make it something that can literally fit in your pocket.
The Mavic Air has a flight time of 21 minutes. It sports a 4K camera with a 3-axis gimbal and it has a range of 2.4 miles (4 kilometers).
The Spark is a starter drone that’s half the price of the Mavic Air. It has a flight time of 16 minutes and a 1080p 2-axis camera. It has a maximum range of 1.2 miles (2 kilometers).
The Tello is a programmable drone for beginners. It has a 13 minute flight time and it can fly 100 meters. It doesn’t come with a controller, but you can use your smartphone or a laptop to fly it. It’s an educational drone that can get your kid interested in technology.
Overall, DJI will offer solid deals for Black Friday. The maximum savings is a respectable 33% off. Which drone is the best depends on your budget and specific needs.If you have been eyeing one of these models, this sale will be the best time to get one.
