DJI’s Black Friday sale is ending this Monday at 11:59 pm PST. Prices will be returning to their normal retail price at that time. DJI rarely discounts their products so it is not known when another sale will happen.
The company released discounts across a range of drones starting late Wednesday night. The discount focus on their latest drones, the DJI Mavic Pro and the DJI Spark. Each of these has been discounted by $100 through the weekend. That’s a 10% and 20% discount respectively.
DJI Spark Sale
The DJI Spark retails for $499 but it can be purchase for just $399 during the sale. The Spark is a beginner focused drone whose main feature is its extreme portability. The drone is only the size of an iPhone Plus when the propellers are folded. This makes it easy to take the drone anywhere.
The Spark is a powerful machine despite its small size. It’s capable of 1080p video and 12MP stills with its 2-axis gimbal camera. It has a range of up to 1.2 miles with an optional controller and a better than average battery life of 16 minutes.
The drone is known for the great software that powers it. You can control the drone with simple gestures. For instance, raising your fingers in a square will tell the drone to take a picture of you. It can also lock on to a person and follow them while they perform stunts.
DJI Mavic Pro
The DJI Mavic Pro is a professional level drone that does not compromise on portability. When the propellers are folded in the drone is not much larger than a water bottle. It’s definitely larger than the Spark, but taking this drone anywhere can be done without hassle.
The Mavic Pro has incredible specs such as a 27 minute flight time, 4.3 mile range, and 40 MPH max speed. It also has a stable 3-axis gimbal with a camera that outputs 4K video and 12MP photos. The Mavic Pro has many of the same features as the Spark such as the ability to lock onto a target and follow them.
You can purchase a bundle for the DJI Spark or Mavic Pro and get additional savings. The bundles typically come with an extra battery and propellers.
The company has not released sales on their other drones. You can get a free battery worth $169 if you purchase a DJI Phantom 4 Pro ($1499) or the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced ($1199) directly from DJI before Monday.
DJI is throwing in some free extras for anyone who purchases a drone from their website. These extras are a landing pad, propeller guards, and a handful of other things. If you purchase a drone from DJI they are offering $50 off their FPV goggles. The company will not be releasing Black Friday sales for their regular Phantom 4 and Phantom 3 drones.
