Alright. You’ve got your list in-hand and are ready to hit those Black Friday drone deals. Make sure to get in early and get them while you can.
I also wanted to toss in another great Black Friday deal however, it’s not drone related. I created this site using the training and hosting services provided by Wealthy Affiliate. If you have even an inkling of starting an online business, your own website or just want to know more about affiliate marketing, check out their Black Friday deal. You can sign up and check it out for free. If you decide it’s not for you, that’s OK, all it cost you was some time to check it out but, if you can see how WA can benefit you and want to go premium, their Black Friday deal is really the best! On a side, note, if you do sign up, free or premium, you’ll have me as your direct mentor. Feel free to reach out, I’ll be happy to help.
Update! – I just wanted to see if anyone took advantage of any of the deals above. l grabbed three of them myself, the one for Wealthy Affiliates, the FAA 107 recurrent course and one of DJI’s. I ended up grabbing the DJI Goggles Racing Edition. What did you get?

Hello Scott. Thank you for sharing these awesome Black Friday deals. $100 these days could do a lot and so much. Drones are cool to use. They are fun to play with. Can be used to take wonderful photos from the top. Hehe. I would love to own one pretty soon for my Entertainment business. Thanks for the deals.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. If you’re just curious about drones and want to check them out, the Tello is a really nice one for $99 ($79 if you go for the Black Friday deal). You can then consider upgrading to a Mavic series or even Phantom after a while.
Not only are they great for taking pictures and just having fun but you can make money with them too. Check out my Make Money category for more details.
I’ve never had a drone, but they are becoming more and more popular these days and it seems like every other person has one now or plans to get one soon. It’s good to know that there are some great Black Friday deals on the way for some of them and I think it’s time I take advantage of it. I love that DJI’s Black Friday Sales are generally anywhere from $50-$100 off the original price. Amazon has some good prices too and I plan to check out Wal Mart and Target as well. Have you bought a drone on Black Friday before?
Sadly I have not purchased a drone on Black Friday before as I have an impulse control issue that usually has me buying something well before it goes on sale. Since you’ve never had a drone, I would suggest you check out the Tello option as an inexpensive first drone. Once you have the hang of things consider upgrading to something in the Mavic or Phantom family.
Thank you for taking the time to comment!
Hi Scott. You have some incredible Drones listed in your article and great prices as well. Unfortunately I don’t know a lot about drones. I want to purchase one for my grandson and me to use during the Christmas break. but I have no idea where to start. He’s about 13 years of age and simply loves Drones. He can’t afford one and neither can his mother. I have around $400 to spend on one. Can you give me an idea which one would suit someone his age group in that price range? Also, What days are the Black Friday specials on, is it only on the one day? Thanks Jim,
Considering your budget, I’d take a good look at the Spark and, if you can manage that extra $60 (during the Black Friday event), the Fly More Combo. That said, if that’s the high end of your budget, you might also consider one ore more Tello drones. They’re pretty great for their price. I still think you’ll get more out of the Spark though.
If your grandson really gets into it then I’d look at the Mavic line and go from there.
Actually the DJI sale is on from November 18 00:00 (EST) to November 27 02:59 (EST). I am not sure how long with will be available on Amazon.com.
Drones have always interested me but up until now I’ve never bought one.I wish these were around when I was a kid! How awesome would that have been? They’re a lot better than the flying planes we had.
I guess there’s a big difference in the drones as you get higher in the price? These are really expensive and I’d really like to get a Black Friday deal but don’t know who would have the best deals? Amazon?
I am concerned about something. What if these things crash? Do you have insurance on them because they cost so much?
Tell me about it…when I was a kid my budget only allowed me to play with model rockets but, at the time, I so wanted remote control helicopters and maybe a Learjet.
Generally speaking, the more expensive the drone, the more capabilities, bells and whistles. You never know who’s going to have the best deal until they announce it and, even then, who’s to say some very last minute option won’t pop-up?
Many of the drone models will have options for additional manufacturer coverage (even accidental damage). They will vary in price and may have certain limitations. For example, DJI’s coverage is pretty nice but has a co-pay and you must recover the drone to use it so if you crashed in a river or lost it in a forest, unless you get it back, you can’t file a claim. There are also 3rd party options as well.
If you really are considering a drone, start small with something like the Tello or Spark. Once you’re sure you want to get into drones, then go for the Mavic or Phantom series. I have a few reviews on here for the Mavic series specifically that you might want to check out:

Thank you for this information on the Black Friday Drone deals. Im not a Droner but your site has enticed me to look into what drones are all about. I have always thought it would be great to have one when going out fishing – using the drone to take aerial images and maybe find dolphin pods etc.so we could take the boat in for more closer photography of these wonderful creatures.
Drones have their place in the world today and i can see many advantages to their use – I hope people continue to use them for this purpose rather than on the negative side of drones – airspace, privacy space etc.
Well done on an awesome website
You’d be amazed at some of the things drones can be used for. I’ve seen YouTube videos of people fishing from the beach and using a drone to find the schools of fish and drop the line right on them!
If you do end up getting a drone and plan to launch from a boat, please check out my Flying from a Boat or Other Moving Platform – Taking Off, Operating Around and Landing post for tips.
Sadly, the only news you hear about drones is usually news that can be sensationalized and, thus, tends to be negative. People do use drones for good as well but, just like in any other endeavor or group, it only takes one bad egg to give the whole a bad rep. Check out these posts I’ve done regarding the drone community:

I’m a huge fan of drones but an even bigger fan of deals and savings, lol. My eldest son has just got into drones himself and has asked for a good quality drone for Christmas.
You have some amazing deals here but I’m not quite sure what to get my son, I don’t mind paying the prices here but he’s 13 years old so which one do you think would work best for him? He’s had 1 drone in the past but it was easy to use and he thought it was a bit childish so I need to get one more age appropriate, any advice would be great, thanks
The more you save the more you can buy right? It’s hard to say which drone will suit your son best. What does he want to do with it? Is it for photography, videography or just for fun? The Mavic Air is a great option but, if range is important, I’d consider the Mavic Pro/Pro Platinum over the air.
Check out my DJI Mavic – Which One to Choose post to compare the models. Either way, I think you’ll be happy.
Make sure you have your son check out my New to the Mavic? – What You Should Do First post to get the most out of his new drone.
Thank you so much for reminding, last year I was late to respond to dji Black Friday offers because of some financial instability but not this year around. I’m patiently waiting for the day. Mavic Air Fly More Combo is my dream Drone and it seems this year, I am going to grab it.
Awesome! I’m sure you’ll love it. Make sure to stop back by and share a photo or video from it when you get it.
