Here are some of the deals you need to know about, sorted by drone, and then broken down by where to buy it:

  1. Great post and some lovely drone deals indeed around now. DJI Mavic is excellent but if you already have a GoPro camera then the Karma drone could be the job. The smaller Breeze and Spark are also nice choices especially as first drones.

  2. The karma drone sucks, even the version 2 which just came out this year, probably one of the worst drones actually. It doesn’t stay in one place at all, at least they fixed the battery falling out problem they had lol … If anything, as a Christmas present I’d go with the DJI spark
