Is a drone on your Christmas list this year? Black Friday is offering LOADS of drone deals this year through stores including DJI and B&H Photo Video. You’ll save $100 on the wildly popular DJI Spark, more than $100 on my favorite pick, the DJI Mavic Pro, and you could even walk away with free extras like batteries, memory cards, landing pads and more.
Here are some of the deals you need to know about, sorted by drone, and then broken down by where to buy it:
The DJI Spark is DJI’s smallest drone and perhaps its smartest, able to lift off from the palm of your hand and make a decision of where to fly based on your body movements. The drone is so wildly popular, it was even named one of Time Magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2017. The drone typically retails for $499, but it’s way cheaper if you buy it on Black Friday.
Great for: Beginners, Students, Travelers, and People who love taking selfies and group photos.
The DJI Mavic Pro is still my favorite drone to-date, though it will cost you about twice as much as the DJI Spark. Luckily, Black Friday has come to the rescue. The Mavic Pro typically retails starting at $999.
Great for: Beginners, travelers, and photographers looking for a new perspective.
Buy the DJI Mavic Pro directly from DJI’s store: Purchase the DJI Mavic Pro directly through DJI and you’ll save $100. Or save $150 by upgrading to the premium package.
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced and Pro are two drones geared at serious photographers. The drones will produce much better image quality than the Mavic Pro and Spark. Here’s a guide to the differences between the DJI Phantom Advanced vs. Pro.
Great For: Professional photographers and cinematographers.
The GoPro Karma Quadcopter with HERO5 Black puts your GoPro camera in the air. When you’re done flying, you can use the camera and its gimbal to get that silky smooth video on the ground. The GoPro Karma drone typically retails starting at $1,099.
Great for: Action sports enthusiasts and people who have or want a GoPro
Buy the GoPro Karma drone from B&H Photo to save $200: B&H Photo is selling the Karma for just $899 — even ahead of Black Friday! PLUS, B&H does not charge sales tax outside of New York and New Jersey AND you’ll get free shipping.
DJI Goggles put you in the cockpit of your drone, giving you that first person view of what your drone’s camera is seeing.
Great for: DJI drone users who want an HD FPV experience
The Yuneec Breeze is the cheapest drone you’ll find on the Black Friday deals list of drones, and it’s similar to the DJI Spark in a lot of ways, but without the gesture control. The Breeze typically retails for $399.
Great for: Budget drone enthusiasts who enjoy selfies
Buy the Yuneec Breeze from B&H Photo to save $70: B&H Photo is selling the Karma for just $329 — even ahead of Black Friday! PLUS, B&H does not charge sales tax outside of New York and New Jersey AND you’ll get free shipping.
The DJI Osmo takes that smooth, silky look of a drone, and puts it on the ground. The Osmo Mobile is quite a bit cheaper than the Osmo+ because it uses your phone’s camera.
