Want to get a free Tello drone?
This deal may sound too good to be true, but it’s totally not. DJI is running a massive back-to-school sale, and the best drone deal so far comes if you buy a DJI Mavic Air, which is by far my favorite drone to-date.
For a limited time, if you buy the Mavic Air Fly More Combo via the DJI store, you will get a free Ryze Tech Tello ($99). Even better, the Mavic Air Fly More Combo is usually priced at $1,112, but it is currently going for just $999 — Tello drone included!
The DJI Mavic Air combines the best of both worlds of the Mavic Pro and Spark. It’s about the size of a Spark in flight, but folds up like the Mavic Pro to become even smaller. It has the Spark’s nifty gesture control, but it also has the Mavic Pro’s 4K video. And if you grab that drone before September 9th, 2018, you’ll also get a free Tello drone, a $99 kid-friendly drone that combines DJI flight technology and an Intel processor to create a budget camera drone that also can be used to teach newbies the basics of programming.
I love the Mavic Air for traveling, and I love the Tello as a low-cost tool to train my friends on flying. Plus, it’s been a fun tool with real-life application for my personal coding education thanks to its Scratch coding platform.
