Update, Oct. 15: Amazon’s Prime Day sale officially ended at midnight PT. We’re keeping track of the best Prime Day deals still available, however, and we’ve identified the best Walmart “Big Save” deals, which remain available through the end of today.
DJI’s smallest Mavic drone, the Mavic Mini, has a big discount on Amazon Prime Day 2020. The palm-sized folding drone normally costs $399 by itself, but Prime Day finds the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo for that price. That’s $100 off the normal $499 price for the bundle, which includes the drone, its compact controller, a two-way charging hub, three batteries, three sets of extra propellers, protective propeller cages and a carrying case. Amazon’s two-day Prime Day sales event officially kicked off at midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 13, and runs through Wednesday, Oct. 14.
The Mavic Mini weighs less than 250 grams (8.8 ounces), shoots video at up to 2.7K at 30 frames per second and 12-megapixel photos, and flies for up to 30 minutes. To bring the weight down, the Mini doesn’t have any extra sensors for recognition and obstacle avoidance, and it doesn’t have all the tracking capabilities of the company’s higher-end Mavics. It’s still easy to fly, though, and the camera is stabilized on a three-axis gimbal so you get the same blur-free photos and incredibly smooth video as the others.
This is the first time DJI has discounted the Mavic Mini since its launch last year. But, if you’re interested in another DJI drone or one of its Ronin camera gimbals, the company says it will have other Prime Day deals available.
