If you’re looking at a DJI Drone for your first quad copter or looking at its models as a new portable different to your bigger Phantom machine, you should know that the Mavic Pro is currently available on Amazon for $769 — that’s a price cut of $230, and is $30 cheaper than the recently released Mavic Air.
It’s the best price we’ve seen for the Pro since its release in 2016, and is likely to prove hard to resist for those who’ve been considering this particular DJI drone.
The deal bags you the machine itself, the remote controller, a battery and charger, a 16GB SD card, spare propellers, and three kinds of USB cables (Lightning, Micro USB, and USB-C).
There’s also other bag priced at $1,078, designs a hefty price drop of $221. With this option you receive two extra batteries, extra propellers, a charging hub, car charger, a battery to power bank adapter, and a shoulder bag to throw it all in.
Digital Trends gave the foldable DJI Mavic Pro 4.5 out of a possible 5 stars in its in-depth hands-on review, praising it for its portable design, solid build, excellent range, and decent 4K camera. Then as I point out at the top, DJI newly introduced the Mavic Air for $799. It’s lighter and smaller than the Pro, and features better obstacle avoidance capabilities. The Pro, however, offers superior battery life of up to 27 minutes — that’s six minutes more than the Air.
If value and compactness are your main worries, the DJI series also includes the tiny Spark, which is currently on offer for $339 down from $399, though as its price suggests, this particular model is less powerful, comes with fewer features, and sports a less impressive camera than its siblings.
The Mavic Pro rate fall is probable to be in response to customer’s turnoff their attention to the Mavic Air, which has gotten rave reviews since its launch at the end of January, 2018. It could also be coming ahead of an announcement of an updated version of the Mavic Pro, although it’s been suggested the launch of any follow-up might not be happening until at least June.
If you need a small little camera drone to need some fun with, there are a thousand different options on Amazon. But if you want something that’ll give you professional quality at a price that won’t break the bank, today is definitely your lucky day.
Some main specifics:

Using all pixels Mavic is the only one drone of its size to bring a combined high-precision 3-axis mechanical camera stabilization system.
