If you're on the lookout for a mid to high-end drone, have we got the deal for you. The DJI Mavic Pro, the company's old prosumer flagship drone, is currently on sale at B&H for an all-time low of $650 with a free pair of spare propellers. While we have seen comparable prices on refurbished Mavic Pros, it has never dropped this low on sale as a new drone with a complete manufacturer warranty. This deal ends at midnight ET, so you will have to hurry.
Yesterday at CES 2019, DJI announced the new Smart Controller for its Mavic 2 lineup. This Android-powered handheld runs the DJI Go 4 app and features a high-brightness display. It goes on sale immediately for $650.
Popular drone manufacturer DJI has started its Black Friday sales a day early, with some decent savings to be had across its range of products. The Mavic Air, one of the company's best sellers, can be had for $100 off (even $110 off at Amazon), but there are other inviting discounts too.
If you have the desire to take some stunning aerial video footage and imagery, as well as pretty deep pockets, a camera drone could be for you. They seem to have increased in popularity over the past few years, as prices become less crazy and the technology improves. DJI is one of the biggest names in the drone space, and it's just announced it's most advanced hardware yet.
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "My arms are just too short to take a totally rad selfie." Well, why not have a drone do it? The previously announced AirSelfie2 drone aircraft is available for purchase. Never again will you need to stretch your arm to the limit to get those Insta-likes.
Most of us have probably wished we could fly at some point. True, we've got external mechanical means of flight, but every kiddo's dream of a running start with outstretched arms remains firmly in the realm of fantasy. While science works to solve that problem, you can pick up a drone to sate your Icarian desires in the meantime. And you're in luck, as there just so happens to be a small pile of discounts for DJI drones like the Mavic Pro and Spark.
If you're looking for a first-person view when controlling your drone, DJI's goggles already had you covered. The company has now updated its original viewer with a new version designed specifically with racing in mind. The sleek metallic black and red leather goggles are exactly what you'd expect from a product carrying a 'Racing Edition' moniker.
DJI, purveyor of premium-brand drones to the poor and the gentry, has a new app on the Play Store. It's a companion app for the recent entries in the company's lineup, mostly focused on the built-in still and video cameras. The app has a livestreaming function (but not remote control) and editing built in. But something odd is going on here: why is version four of the GO app getting a separate listing on the Play Store, despite the fact that both of them are free? The older app mentions support for Inspire, Phantom, and Matrice 100 drones, while the new one drops the Matrice in favor of the Mavic Pro.
A small plane is still a plane, and here in the US, that leaves them under the jurisdiction of the Federal Aviation Administration. Someone flying a drone or model plane in restricted airspace can find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Or worse, they can cause real problems for larger aircraft transporting people.
To make things better for everyone, the FAA has released a mobile app, B4UFLY, that shows if there are any restrictions or requirements in your area.
Whether you call them UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), RPAs (remotely piloted aircraft), or drones, there's no denying that they are making waves. It's hard to bring up the subject without specifically talking about the DJI Phantom series. In the year since it was announced, the Phantom 3 has become the crowd favorite among photographers. Today, DJI announced the brand new Phantom 4, and it includes a boatload of improvements and new technology over earlier models.
The Phantom 4 looks a lot like its predecessors, but almost every aspect has been touched up or completely redesigned. The chassis is both stronger and lighter thanks to a new magnesium core, which should help in the event of a collision and hopefully bring up the flight time just a bit.
