Best Black Friday Drone Deals: November 25on November 25, 2022 at 08:51 Tech Advisor

0

Black Friday is one of the best times to buy a drone as you’ll typically pay less than any other time of the year.

The day itself has arrived, but retailers seem to consider the entire week before, and the one after, to be ‘Black Friday’.

However, if you have your heart set on buying a drone, it’s a good idea not to hang around: these deals won’t last for long and often sell out.

While there are plenty of discounts around, DJI has not discounted any of its drones except the original FPV. It is running an “Epic Products, Epic Deals” event, but that is massively overselling it. Only two products – the FPV and Osmo Action 2 – are discounted, and there’s only 10% off the FPV.

However, if you were hoping for a bargain on a DJI Mini or Mavic, you can make savings as you’ll see below.

If you’re not sure whether a particular drone is the right choice or not, it’s worth reading our drone buyer’s guide to find out what you should look for.

And quite aside from specifications such as flying time and video resolution, you should be aware of  the laws about flying drones in your country. Because of potential danger and also privacy issues surrounding the on-board cameras, there are strict rules governing where and how you fly a drone.

Size and weight plays a part, too, with sub-250g drones generally offering the biggest freedom in where you can fly, and not requiring expensive pilot training courses. In the UK you still need to register even these lightweight drones, for example.

You can find hundreds of hand-picked offers in our Black Friday tech deals roundup.

DJI FPV Combo

£789
(37% off)

DJI Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo

4

From: Amazon

Was: £949

Now:
£649
(£300 off)

If you’re after a Mavic Air 2, this Fly More Combo deal is decent. It isn’t really £300 off, as you’ll find it elsewhere for £749. But, you will not find it for £649 unless you opt for a used one.

Amazon hasn’t discounted the regular Air 2, so the Fly More Combo is actually cheaper at the moment.

Read our full review for more on the drone itself.

DJI Mini 2

5

From: Amazon

Was: £419

Now:
£369
(£50 off)

If you want a cheap drone that shoots 4K video and weighs less than 250g, the Mini 2 is hard to beat, especially when it’s on offer, as it is from Amazon. But you’ll find it at the same price from quite a few other places including Argos, Box and Currys.

DJI Air 2S Drone Fly More Combo

6

From: Box.co.uk

Was: £1169

Now:
£1029
(£140 off)

The Air 2S is a superb drone – as you’ll see in our review – and this is the best price on the Fly More Combo right now in the UK.

It’s a decent upgrade from the Mavic Air 2, but if you won’t make full use of its 10-bit video capabilities, then you might just as well save money and get a Mavic Air 2 for quite a lot less.
