DJI’s Black Friday deals take off – save £100 on the DJI Mavic Air drone and more

DJI Black Friday deals – the best drone deals live now

If you’ve been patiently waiting for DJI’s exciting drones to fly down into impulse buy territory, your time has come – the Chinese company’s Black Friday 2018 UK deals are now live, and we’ve rounded up all of the zingers in one handy place.

The excellent DJI Mavic Air has been given the biggest price slash, with a £100 discount taking its price down to £669 until the deals end at 22.59pm on 26th November.

This takes its price down to less than the half the cost of the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro, making it a brilliant buy for anyone who’s looking for a mini 4K drone with lots of beginner-friendly auto modes and very handy obstacle avoidance.

At that price, no other drone comes close to offering the DJI Mavic Air’s mix of video quality and portability. In our review verdict, we said: “The Mavic Air’s affordable price tag and excellent video quality means it’s still king of the mid-range skies and the best sub-£1000 drone you can buy.”

Best Amazon Drone Deals

DJI Mavic Air

DJI's Mavic Air is an excellent drone for hobbyists, thanks to its superb 4K camera, class-leading obstacle avoidance and tiny form factor. This is its lowest ever price – the offer runs until 11pm on 26 November 2018.

DJI Osmo Mobile 2

Take your smartphone videos to the next level with this motorised gimbal, which is now a serious bargain at just £109 (the original DJI Osmo launched at £299). Its 3-axis gimbal and 15-hour battery life make it the best of its kind.

Parrot Anafi 4K drone

Parrot has provided a genuine alternative to DJI’s brilliant mini drones here, with a clever compact design and an excellent 4K HDR camera. It's currently down to its lowest ever price on Amazon.

DJI Mavic 2 Fly More Kit Accessories Combo Bundle for Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Pro Drone Quadcopter

If you've already splashed out on a Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom but fancy giving your flying camera a bit more stamina, then this Fly More kit has just had its price slashed. It includes two extra batteries, a charging hub, a car charger and a shoulder bag.

DJI UK Goggles Racing Edition

Steal a march on your drone racing rivals with these supercharged DJI Goggles, which trump the standard Goggles with improved antennas, latency, comfort and the bonus of support for the less crowded 5.8Ghz transmission band.

Parrot Bebop 2

At this price, the Bebop 2 is a good alternative to the DJI Spark – it shoots 1080p video and 14-megapixel stills, while the battery lasts an impressive 25 minutes per charge.

DJI Black Friday deals – best of the rest

DJI Spark

DJI Spark (£399 until 26/11/18)

Another strong offer for drone novices is the £50 reduction to DJI Spark, bringing it down to £399 until Monday 26th November. Considering this also includes a controller, this makes it a great buy for anyone looking to dip their toes into aerial photography or the fun of flying something that can zip around at 30mph.

In our review of the DJI Spark, we said: “The DJI Spark is incredibly good fun to fly, and the Quick Shots are a great way to achieve dramatic shots without needing being an advanced drone pilot. If you don’t want to stretch to the fantastic DJI Mavic Pro, the DJI Spark is a fantastic first advanced drone.”

Ryze Tello (£89 until 26/11/18)

Looking for a Christmas stocking-friendly toy drone? There are few better than the Ryze Tello now it’s been reduced to £89.

Despite its price and 80g weight, it can record 720p video and 5-megapixel stills. It can also teach kids (or big kids) basic coding skills, thanks to compatibility with the Scratch programming language.

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 (£109 until 26/11/18)

Not all of DJI’s best offers are on drones. Had your eye on the DJI Osmo Mobile 2? This motorised gimbal for smartphones, which is great for smoothing out and reducing shake on YouTube-friendly videos, is now down to a highly tempting £109 (a drop of 15% from its usual price), its lowest price yet. Considering the original, inferior Osmo launched at £299 in 2015, that’s a bit of a steal.

In our review of the Osmo Mobile 2, we said: “By drastically reducing the price and enhancing the handling, DJI has made the best smartphone gimbal currently available. It’s lightweight and comfortable to use, plus battery life has been boosted.

“If you’re in the market for a gimbal, the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 is the model to buy.”

DJI Goggles RE (£449 until 26/11/18)

If you already have a DJI drone (or are looking to buy a present for someone who does), there are two more offers that are well worth checking out.

Fans of PPV drone racing can gain a competitive edge with the DJI Goggles RE (Racing Edition), which are now down to £449 from their usual £549 price. The Racing Edition goggles, which connect to pretty much every DJI drone including the Mavic 2 via an Ocusync wireless transmission unit, improve on DJI’s standard Goggle by offering better comfort and antennas, lowering latency, and offering the option of the less crowded 5.8Ghz transmission band, to help avoid inteference.

Lastly, there’s an excellent deal for owners of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom, who are looking for a bit more longevity from their flying sessions. The Mavic 2 Fly More Kit’s price has been slashed by a huge 36% down to £339. Considering it includes two extra batteries, a car charger, a battery charging hub, some low-noise propellers, and a rather fancy Mavic 2 Shoulder Bag, that’s a cracking deal.

DJI Black Friday deals – which drone should I buy?

Still confused about which drone is right for you? We’ve rounded up all of DJI’s current travel models (plus the Ryze Tello) in the handy table below, with the special Black Friday deals highlighted in bold.

DJI’s two Mavic 2 models are both excellent drones, but are too recent to have been given Black Friday discounts. Its larger Phantom range has also been left out of DJI’s deals, with rumours that a DJI Phantom 5 might be launched in New York next week.

So if you’re looking for a drone bargain, the three models below them are your best bet – with the DJI Mavic Air our pick for anyone who’s looking to get into both aerial photography and learning how to fling a speedy drone around the sky in sport mode.
