DJI is the biggest consumer drone company in the world with up to 70% market share. The company has established a reputation for quality products that usually far surpass the nearest competition.
DJI will end their Black Friday sale that started late Wednesday night last week at 11:59 PST tonight. You have just a few hours longer to order a drone from them before they return to their full retail price.
The DJI Spark retails for $499, but you can get it for next few hours for $399. This is a discount of 20%, which is a lot for a DJI product. The Fly More Combo is selling for $599 and it includes a controller, an additional battery, and a few more items. This is an entry level drone from DJI that’s designed to be easy to use for beginners.
The Spark has a 2-axis gimbal that can take 1080p video and 12MP photographs. It has a flight time of 16 minutes and a maximum range of 1.2 miles with an optional controller. It can go up to 31 MPH. The Spark is only about the size of an iPhone Plus when the blades are folded.
The DJI Mavic Pro is a portable professional grade drone that is selling for $899. It normally retails for $999. You can save an extra $50 with the Fly More Bundle that has two spare batteries, extra propellers, and much more.
The Mavic Pro has a 3-axis camera with 4K video and 12MP stills. It has a 4.3 mile maximum range and it can fly for up to 27 minutes on a single charge. This drone can cut through the air at speeds approaching 40 MPH. The propellers fold into the aircraft battery making the drone only about the size of a water bottle when packed.
DJI has focused their sale on these two aircraft. The Spark and the Mavic Pro are the newest drones from the company. They also offer a free battery worth $169 with purchase of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro ($1499) or the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced ($1199) directly from their website.
Amazon does not have inventory on the base DJI Spark right now. You can order it from the DJI site until the sale ends. DJI also has some accessories on sale that you can pick up for cheap if you have an existing drone from the company. They are also offering $50 off their FPV goggles with purchase of a drone.
DJI released great sales this year and they sold a ton of drones. The company is not known to offer discounts very often so their Cyber Monday sale was special.
