You survived Black Friday, but guess what? Tomorrow is Cyber Monday, which means more opportunity to take advantage of some incredible drone deals.

Amazon’s Cyber Monday 2018 Drone Deals

Of course, Amazon always has amazing deals on drones, and often has the best prices you’ll find anywhere on the Internet. Couple that with Amazon Prime (here’s a link to a free 30-day trial) to get free 2-day shipping. Don’t need 2-day shipping and willing to wait? Amazon often makes offers like “$2 off digital products” or “$5 off Amazon Prime Now grocery delivery” if you opt for the slower shipping option, meaning you’re basically earning money with those choices.

Not sure what drone to buy for your loved one? Here are the 4 items that I would want on my Christmas list!

 

1. DJI Mavic Air: This is easily my favorite drone you can buy today. 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.

2. Yuneec Typhoon H: This is an excellent pick for photographers given its 6 rotors (a comforting safety feature), foldable arms to allow it to pack up smaller than its actual flying size, retractable landing gear to ensure legs never get in your shot, and a 360-degree range of motion camera. Read The Drone Girl’s full Yuneec Typhoon H review here.

3. DJI Spark Fly More Combo: If you can afford it, then I recommend you spring for the DJI Mavic Air, but if you’re on a budget, I cannot say enough good things about the Spark. The drone is mostly notable for its Jedi-mind-trick gesture control function. Read The Drone Girl’s full DJI Spark review here.dji spark firmware update

4. DJI Tello: Tello is a 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. Read The Drone Girl’s full Tello review here.
