Everyone else is talking about Amazon Prime Day 2019, but DJI is hosting their own drone sale.
The Chinese drone manufacturer behind the Mavic and Phantom drones is hosting their own “Super Sale” on July 15 and 16, where you can save as much as 18% on drones like the Mavic and Tello, as well as non-drone gear like the Osmo. DJI also offers free shipping on all orders over $99.
Here are some of the best deals from DJI’s “Super Sale.”
The new Osmo Action is $30 off
It’s rare for DJI to put such a new product on sale, but the Osmo Action camera, which is essentially DJI’s response to the GoPro, is marked down from $349 to $319.
The Osmo Action was launched earlier this year, and there’s some debate as to whether or not it’s a “GoPro killer.” (DJI and GoPro used to operate as partners, with the early Phantoms designed specifically to carry GoPro cameras). The Osmo Action’s dual-screen design includes both the standard 2.25-inch rear touchscreen, plus a 1.4-inch display on the front.
The Osmo Pocket is also $30 off
The Osmo Pocket is priced identically to the Osmo Action. You’ll save $30 when you buy it through the Super Sale, taking you from $349 to $319. The DJI Osmo Pocket is a teeny, tiny, gimbal camera that shoots 4K footage. I consider it a huge improvement upon the Osmo Mobile, since it uses its own internal camera rather than trying to connect to your smartphone.
Save $120 on the Mavic Air
If you want to buy a drone, the greatest savings will come from the Mavic Air, where you’ll pay $679 (the sticker price is usually $799). The Mavic Air is my personal favorite drone given its ease of use and ultra-compact size that does not compromise on image quality. Seriously — it’s about 8 inches diagonally across, and it weighs less than a pound.
DJI’s budget pick, the Tello drone, is $10 off
I love the Tello drone for drone newbies, as well as STEM classrooms. It’s typically $99, but it’s on sale today for $89, so you’ll save 10% off the sticker price.
Though not officially made by DJI, the Tello drone is a kid-friendly drone that combines DJI flight technology and an Intel processor to create a budget camera drone (though most people associated it with DJI). It’s designed to teach newbies the basics of programming, yet it’s also great for learning to fly since it’s so durable (it is able to withstand dozens of tiny hands trying to grab it, and plenty more crashes). I absolutely consider it a great pick for classrooms given its relatively small (and now smaller) price tag.
