Looking to nab up some DJI 2021 Black Friday deals? Many DJI holiday deals have already been announced.
On DJI’s own online retail site, the DJI 2021 holiday sale is set to begin later this week — and this year it’s dubbed Create Holiday Magic. It delivers on the magic, thanks to the discounts, freebies and opportunities to win extra prizes. While most of the deals on DJI’s site won’t actually kick in until Thursday, Nov. 25, DJI did us a solid and announced what they are now, so everyone can start planning their Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday shopping lists now.
But you might not even have to wait for Thursday to get killer DJI 2021 Black Friday deals. Many other retailers including B&H Photo and Amazon have kicked off Black Friday early this year.
Here are the best deals DJI 2021 Black Friday deals we’ve spotted so far (as well as deals on DJI-adjacent products):
DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo
The DJI Mavic Mini is already an incredible value as-is, and is my top-recommend drone for under $500. The video quality isn’t quite as good as what you’ll get on other DJI camera drones: 2.7K on the Mavic Mini vs. 4K on the Mini 2 and most other DJI drones.
Plus, this drone only weighs 249 grams, which is great for casual pilots who don’t want to worry about registering or Remote ID rules.
DJI 2021 holiday sale deal: The DJI Mavic Mini Combo typically goes for $499. Purchase it now from B&H Photo to get not just $100 in savings and pay only $399, but B&H will also throw in an extra goodie. For $399, you get the DJI Mavic Mini Fly More Combo and a DJI Propeller Holder (a $13 value).
If you want the DJI Mavic Mini but are fine sacrificing the Combo version (which otherwise nets you accessories, including batteries, a charging hub, and a carrying bag), head to Amazon this week where you can nab it for just $299.
DJI FPV Drone Combo
The DJI FPV drone is an ideal drone for someone who wants to get into drone racing while still having high-quality video footage. It can reach maximum speeds of 87 mph, capable of a maximum acceleration of 0-62 mph in just two seconds. Yet it’s also masterful for photography and videography, able to shoot footage with its 4K/60fps 120 Mbps camera, with the option to film in 4x slow motion in 1080p and 120 fps.
DJI 2021 holiday sale deal: The combo version of DJI FPV, which includes bundled goggles, typically costs $1,299. But on B&H Photo, it’s going for $999, for $300 savings.
DJI Air 2S
The DJI Air 2S is my top overall drone for most photographers, perfectly combining camera quality with ease of flight with reasonable price. It mostly stands out for its 1” sensor offering 20-megapixel photos and 5.4K video.
DJI 2021 holiday sale deal: The DJI Air 2S costs $999 on DJI’s site. But purchase it from DJI’s own site between Nov. 25 and January 1 (or while supplies last, whichever is first), and you’ll get a free DJI Exclusive Badge Set for you clothes or backpacks included as a gift with purchase.
DJI OM 5
The DJI OM 5 is basically a wildly epic selfie stick, taking DJI’s 3-axis stabilization technology made for drones, and bringing it to your smartphone too. While palm-sized when folded, the DJI OM 5 has a 215 mm built-in extension rod that holds your phone.
DJI 2021 holiday sale deal: The DJI OM 5 costs $139 on DJI’s site. But if you purchase it from DJI’s own website between Nov. 25 and January 1 (or while supplies last, whichever is first), you’ll get a free DJI Crossbody Bag included as a gift with purchase.
Especially if you’ve got a higher-quality drone like the DJI Mavic 3, which records video in DCI 4K/120fps (and has a battery life of 46 minutes, meaning plenty of video to capture), you’re going to need a solid memory card (or a few).
The best deals on memory cards thus far are a part of B&H’s Holiday Head Start sale. Our top deals are:
- SanDisk 512GB Ultra UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card: $65.99 (normally $92.99, for $27 savings)
- SanDisk 512GB Extreme UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card with SD Adapter: $79.99 (normally $228.99, for $149 savings)
- SanDisk 1TB Ultra UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card: $137.99 (normally $239.99, for $102 savings)
