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:
Black Friday drone deals: DJI Spark
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 Spark in its standard package will be priced at $399 (regularly $499).
- Or, upgrade to the fly more combo at $599 (regularly $699).
- PLUS, order through the DJI Store and you’ll get a 55 cm drone landing pad, a pair of Spark Propeller Holders and a pair of Spark Hand Guards.
Black Friday drone deals: DJI Mavic Pro
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.

Black Friday drone deals: Yuneec Typhoon H and Yuneec Typhoon H Pro with Intel RealSense
The Yuneec Typhoon H is an incredibly sturdy drone for prosumers and businesses alike. One of the best — and most noticeable — features about the Typhoon H compared to many drones is the 6 rotors, giving it a redundancy and making it a safe choice.

Great For: Professional photographers and cinematographers.
- Phantom 4 Advanced: $1,199 (includes an additional battery, valued at $169)
