Having previously posted about Black Friday DJI drone deals earlier in the week, I just wanted to make a quick post to let you all know about some awesome drones for sale deals offered by Amazon this Black Friday. Their deals have already started so you can start buying straight away.
The first one up is the DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone with 4K Camera. You essentially have a choice whether you want to purchase via DJI or via Amazon.com since they are both running the same deal.
For $1,159 you get one of the best drones with camera currently available and you also get a free DJI Phantom 3 battery to go with it. Although the flying time per battery is about 20-25 minutes, a spare battery is a must have accessory, as I am sure most of our drone flyers would agree. To buy on its own, the battery would cost $140 alone. There is essentially no better time to purchase one of these drones. But if I were you I would hurry, since the stock is limited and they are likely to sell out soon.
If you wish to buy the DJI Phantom 3 Standard, Amazon seems to offer the better deal. For $599 you can buy the quadcopter alone, or you can buy the quadcopter + an extra Phantom 3 battery for $748. This is a great little drone that is a lot more affordable, especially for novice flyers. If you are just starting out, you can still enjoy amazing 2.4K videos and 12MP photos from this drone with camera. It does lack other technology such as Lightbridge which makes the connection between the remote and the drone smoother for long ranges, but one has to compromise somewhere.
DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drones for sale – neither DJI or Amazon seem to offer any amazingly special deals on the 1080p camera P3 Advanced drone as of yet. If this changes, we’ll let you know so check back! Amazon does offer a slightly better price for it, $963 (compared to $999 on the DJI website) – more details here. However, there is no spare battery bundled in with this drone. We therefore recommend splashing out a further ~$200 and purchase the DJI Professional drone with 4K Camera as it’s more future proof as well and now is probably the best time to buy it.
This post will be updated throughout the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend with any drone deals that might crop up so bookmark it, and come back!
