Black Friday drone deals Black Friday drone deals

We’re in the last week of November and Black Friday drone deals are finally starting to take off. While the main sales event itself doesn’t officially start until November 26, plenty of retailers like Amazon and Walmart have already started to put out discounts on some of the best drones out there.

So far, DJI – one of the big names in drone manufacturing – hasn’t announced any big sales directly, but we have seen a few of its models discounted via online retailers. The company has just revealed its latest top-spec model, the Mavic Pro 3, which sports a dual-camera system and boasts a flight time of 46 minutes. This model replaces two predecessors, the Mavic Pro 2 and the Mavic 2 Zoom, so there’s a good chance we might see these older models discounted.

Beginner's buying advice

There are numerous types of drone, but when it comes to buying one, there are (very roughly) three main categories: toys, FPVs and photography/ video models.

The toys are the simplest. Weighing under 250g, they tend to cluster together at the lower end of the price range because they feature simpler designs. They don’t usually sport any kind of camera. Instead, they give people the opportunity to try their hand at flying something simply for the fun of it, without any bells and whistles. Designs that fall into this category are still subject to drone regulations, but you don’t have to register them with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

FPV drones are designed to give you a first person view when you’re flying. This is typically done through the use of goggles, which you wear when you fly. A lot of models also let you stream the drone-camera view to a smartphone. This type of drone is usually used for racing or for tackling obstacle courses. You can read a full breakdown of their design in our article: ‘What are FPV drones?’ They can feature some good cameras on their main body, but they are usually built to prioritise speed. A lot of FPV drone enthusiasts like to build their own models, too.

Finally, you have the prosumer photography/ video models. There’s still massive variation within this category, as some cheaper models sport simpler camera designs and won't cost too much. But the really top-end drones in this category have huge sensors that allow experts to take wonderful panoramic shots or videos from high up in the air. These drones can cost as little as $100 but most of them sit around the $1000 mark - and the really top-end models can set you back by $8000. 

The more expensive drones tend to feature sophisticated designs, with automatic-collision detection that help keep your drone safe and some cool pre-programmed flight paths that allow you to take interesting videos. Whichever one you choose, do make sure you buy insurance, too, as they can suffer if you give them an accidental knock.
