Deals on drones for Memorial Day 2024

Perhaps the most exciting purchase you can make? The drone itself. That’s why we’re kicking off this Memorial Day 2024 deals guide with a section on drones:

28% off of EVO Nano+ for Autel Robotics

  • Original price: $943
  • Discounted price: $679
  • Savings: 28% off

The Autel EVO Nano series is an entry-level aerial camera designed for absolute beginners. It’s rare to find drones discounted and rarely more than a 10% discount.

The EVO Nano+ drone weighs only 249 grams, which is significant due to regulatory benefits. It features a 1/1.28″ sensor capable of capturing 50 MP photos.

The drone is equipped with a three-way binocular vision sensor, allowing it to detect obstacles in front, behind, and below. It can fly for up to 28 minutes, withstand level 5 wind conditions, and transmit video from up to 10 km away.

Many pilots choose this drone specifically as an alternative to DJI. (Though note, this drone is also made in China.)

Purchase the EVO Nano+ for $679.

7% off the DJI Mini 2 SE

  • Original price: $299
  • Discounted price: $279
  • Savings: 7% off

Sure, a 7% discount isn’t huge. But it’s a big deal because finding any drone under $300 is tough to find, let alone a DJI drone. And you can now get the DJI Mini 2 SE from Amazon for $279.

The discount probably also has something to do with the launch of the DJI Mini 4K (which has significant upgrades when compared to the Mini 2 SE).

The DJI Mini 2 SE takes many of the features that were revolutionary when the DJI Mini 2 launched in November 2021. That includes a 1/2.3” CMOS and 12 MP photos. It’s also far cheaper. While the Mini 4K is $299, the DJI Mini 2 SE costs just $279.

Up to 40% off Exo Drones

Although we don’t usually rave about their products, the current EXO drone sale is worth sharing. Running through May 23, 2024, this sale is perfect for those looking for an affordable, non-DJI, and (kind of!) American-made consumer drone.

  • EXO X7 Ranger PLUS (40% off)
    • Usual price: $549
    • Discounted price: $329
    • An entry-level drone with a 25-minute flight time and a 4K camera for photos (2K for videos)
  • EXO Cinemaster 2 (35% off)
    • Usual price: $610
    • Discounted price: $399
    • Features true 4K recording at 50mbps and a 1/2.3in CMOS sensor for higher-quality images.
  • EXO Blackhawk 3 Pro (24% off)
    • Usual price: $1,249
    • Discounted price: $949
    • Offers a 53-minute flight time and a 1/1.3in CMOS 48 MP camera with smart features like obstacle avoidance. Check out our full review of the Blackhawk 3 Pro.
  • EXO Mini Pro (18% off)
    • Usual price: $799
    • Discounted price: $649
    • Lightweight at under 250 grams, with a 40-minute flight time, 4K UHD video, and 3-way obstacle avoidance.
  • EXO Blackhawk 2 Pro (17% off)
    • Usual price: $899
    • Discounted price: $749
    • An older model with fewer features than the Blackhawk 3 Pro, but still a solid option.

These deals are available on Amazon and the EXO drones store, with free shipping to the contiguous U.S. states. Don’t miss out—this sale ends on May 23, 2024.

EXO may be considered an American drone company, depending on your definition. The products are engineered in the U.S., and the company is owned by Miami-based OpenStore. However, the drones are built outside the U.S. and are affiliated with Chinese drone company Hubsan. While they don’t fully meet the Buy American Act requirements, they still represent a solid non-DJI option in the consumer drone market.

This sale is a great opportunity if you’re looking for alternatives to DJI drones. Take advantage of these deals before they end tomorrow!

Deals on drone classes for Memorial Day 2024

Whether you’re looking to learn how to turn your passion into your business, or you want to get your drone license, consider enrolling in a class to learn something new and up-level your skills.

This Memorial Day, take advantage of these deals on online courses:

$120 off Drone Pilot Ground School (AND proceeds are donated to K9s for Warriors)

Memorial Day 2024 Drone Pilot Grond School Part 107 test prep

Drone Pilot Ground School is the most reputable provider of training for the Part 107 test and general drone flight training. The Drone Girl, Sally, personally used their course to take and pass the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aeronautical Knowledge Test on her first try, so it’s easy to understand why it’s her favorite Part 107 drone test prep course.

This Memorial Day 2024, save $120 on any of the three packages offered:

  1. Self-Study (normally $297, now $197)
  2. Guided Study (normally $327, now $227)
  3. 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 a huge deal. What’s even better about this sale is that the 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 2024 sale runs until Tuesday, May 28, at 11:59 p.m. CT.
