If you follow the world of drones at all (how could you not?!?), you've probably seen DJI drones discussed. Among the leading drone manufacturers, DJI has one of the best overall reputations and a solid selection of models available, whether you're just getting into the hobby or have more serious uses in mind.
Cyber Monday brings some stellar deals on DJI drones ranging from the top of the line DJI Phantom 4 Professional to the miniature but no less impressive DJI Spark. Below are some of the best deals this holiday season if you're looking to pick up a DJI Drone for cheap.
DJI Drone Cyber Monday Deals
- DJI Phantom 4 Professional Quadcopter Drone with 4K Camera - $1,499 (list $2,000)
- DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Drone with 4K Stabilized Camera - $1,099 (list $1,400)
- DJI Mavic Pro Quadcopter Drone with 4K Stabilized Camera + $100 eBay Gift Card - $899 (list $1,300)
- DJI Spark Mini Fly More Drone Combo + $100 Gift Card - $599 (list $699)
- DJI Spark Quadcopter Drone + $50 Gift Card - $399 (list $650)
If you are looking for the drone with the most features of the list for professional work, the Phantom 4 Professional is a no-brainer, offering everything from a 7 km control range to an innovative Draw mode allowing you to sketch the drone's path for a steady altitude flight. At $1,499 from a reputable eBay seller (who's also an authorized DJI distributor), you're saving $150+ compared to what Amazon and others are charging right now.
For those more in the market for ultraportable models, the Mavic Pro Platinum and Mavic Pro drones both fold for easy, compact transport. Cameras aren't as natively high res, and many matching capabilities are also slightly lower (i.e. the Mavics can't fly as fast in obstacle avoidance mode, and their smaller skyprint means they can't withstand the same levels of wind the Phantom 4 can)...but these are still incredibly full-featured drones, also with a 7 km range and similarly long flight time. For those opting for the non-Platinum version, you snag a $100 eBay gift card on top of the discount.
Finally, the DJI Spark costs the least of the list at $599, not including the value you get from the $100 eBay gift card. Despite its diminutive stature, the Spark still gives you most of the functionality of the big boys, including ActiveTrack (film yourself doing something cool or ill-advised) and multiple shooting modes to give you the compositional effect you want in your photos. It's still good for a 2 km range and 16 minutes of flight with obstacle avoidance.
