Memorial Day 2023 sale drones discount

Memorial Day 2023 is this weekend. Gear up for these drone sales

Memorial Day is about more than just mattress sales! This year, there are great deals to be had on drones and drone accessories. Memorial Day 2023 is set for Monday, May 29 — and while many of the deals won’t actually go live (or even be announced) until next weekend — there are already tons of deals available now so you can get set on your Memorial Day 2023 shopping.

Among the top Memorial Day 2023 drone sales include discounts as high as 15% off on DJI’s most popular drones, plus even-higher discounts on other DJI gear. Plus, other brands are offering sales too!

Bookmark this page, as I’ll be updating it as more deals come (which they surely will throughout the weekend and into Monday). Also, give me a follow on Instagram and Twitter, where I’ll also be posting about new deals as soon as I hear of them.

Here are the top Memorial Day 2023 drone sales:

DJI Mini 3 discount drone

7% off the DJI Mini 3 Fly More Combo

  • Original price: $858
  • Discounted price: $798
  • Savings: 7% off ($60)
  • Deal deals: Now through May 31, 2023

Okay, a 7% discount isn’t huge. But it’s a big deal anyway.

That’s because the DJI Mini 3 is among the newest drones in DJI’s lineup, which makes finding it on sale surprisingly rare. The DJI Mini 3 launched in December 2022 as a <249 gram drone that offers an incredible 38 minutes of flight time. It starts at $559 for the base model (and goes as low as $469 if you already have a controlling, giving it a spot in my guide to the best DJI drones under $500, depending on your financial gymnastics).

But the reality is, you’ll usually pay a far-higher $858, because you’ll almost surely end up buying the DJI Mini 3 Fly More Combo, which gets add-ons like a shoulder bag, Two-Way Charging Hub, and two extra Intelligent Flight Batteries. That’s also the configuration which gets you the far-superior DJI RC.

Luckily for Memorial Day 2023, the $858 price is 7% cheaper, down to $798.

This deal is available now and rungs through May 31, 2023.

DJI Air 2S

15% off the DJI Air 2S and Air 2S Fly More Combo

For Fly More Combo:

  • Original price: $1,299
  • Discounted price: $1,109
  • Savings: 15% off ($190)
  • Deal deals: Now through May 31, 2023

For basic Air 2S kit:

  • Original price: $999
  • Discounted price: $849
  • Savings: 15% off ($150)
  • Deal deals: Now through May 31, 2023

Here’s a bigger discount, this one directed at either the DJI Air 2S or its upgraded ‘Fly More Combo.’ The Air 2S drone is a bit older, having launched in April 2021. That said, it’s still considered the best camera drone under $1,000.

The DJI Air 2S has the perfect combination of new and wildly innovative tech, a high quality camera, a seamless flying experience, smart safety features AND a reasonable price tag, mostly all thanks to its 1” sensor offering 20-megapixel photos and 5.4K video and a larger pixel size of 2.4μm.

This sale runs through May 31, 2023.

DJI FPV drone girl

10% off the DJI FPV Combo

  • Original price: $999
  • Discounted price: $899
  • Savings: 10% off ($100)
  • Deal deals: Now through May 31, 2023

The Memorial Day 2023 discount on the DJI FPV is great not only because of the discount, but because this is a discount on an already-lowered price.

The DJI FPV drone launched in March 2021 with a going rate of $1,299 for the combo. But these days, you can get it for just $999. And now through May 31, you can get it for an ever-lower $899.

The FPV is the predecessor to the DJI Avata drone, but that’s only made both drones hotter than ever right now. Deciding between this drone and the new kid on the block, the Avata? Check out my guide to DJI Avata vs DJI FPV.

$60 off the Apple iPad Air (M1, 5th Gen, 64 GB)

  • Original price: $560
  • Discounted price: $500
  • Savings: 10% off ($60)

For folks who control their drone through a tablet, this is the one to have, as it’s ultra-light and portable. It’s also more comfortable to hold than the the basic iPad (9th gen). While it lacks iPad Pro features like Face ID and 120 Hz screen, that might not matter to drone pilots, who likely should values performance, which is where this delivers. It uses an M1 processor.

$100 off at Drone Pilot Ground School — AND proceeds are donated to K9s for Warriors

Drone Pilot Ground School is the most reputable provider of training for the Part 107 test, as well as general drone flight training. In fact, it’s what I used to take and pass the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aeronautical Knowledge Test on my first try, so it’s easy to understand why it’s my favorite Part 107 drone test prep course

This Memorial Day 2023, save $100 on any of the three packages offered, which are:

  • Self-Study (normally $297, now $197):
  • Guided Study (normally $327, now $227):
  • Guided Study plus Flight Training (normally $525, now $425):

Drone Pilot Ground School typically does not discount the Guided Study + Flight Training package since it’s already discounted, so this is huge. What’s even cooler about this sale is that proceeds will be donated to a great cause: K9s for Warriors. K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury or military sexual trauma.

The Drone Pilot Ground School Memorial Day 2023 sale runs between now and Tuesday, May 30 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

How to save an extra 5% on Memorial Day 2023 sales

I love the customer service at B&H Photo, but if I’m trying to maximize my savings, here’s why I recommend shopping on Amazon (most of the Memorial Day 2023 deals listed above are valid on Amazon).

If you hold the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, which is largely considered Amazon’s best credit card, it offers an automatic 5% back at both Amazon and Whole Foods, which is combinable with these Memorial Day 2023 discounts named above.
