The DJI Mavic Pro is basically at the tippy top of the drone world, and while that world may not be as hype as it once was, if you have interest in it then you've probably had your eyes on the Mavic Pro once or twice. Today's your chance to get one with a bundled deal that will save you a little bit of money. Best Buy has the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum with the Fly More combo on sale for $979.99 as part of its Best Buy Deals of the Day. This sale is obviously very temporary, but it will save you around $270 versus the cost for this same bundle at other retailers. The next best price is $1,200 on Amazon and that's through a third party. Other retailers like B&H sell it for $1,250.

The Fly More combo includes two extra batteries, a charging hub, a car charger, extra quick-release propellers, and a shoulder bag. The drone, one of the best, includes a 4K camera, enhanced sound reduction, and up to 30 minutes of flight time.

The Fly More combo is designed to do just what it says... keep your Mavic Pro in the air. Most drones, even the best drones, don't have super long flight times. Especially with a powerful camera attached. The Mavic Pro can last about 30 minutes in the sky on a single battery. If you just got the regular drone and its included battery, that would mean you'd have to stop every 30 minutes to charge up the battery and get it going again. The Fly More combo includes two extra Intelligent Batteries. That means every time one battery gets low, you can hot swap to a fully charged one and keep going. Since it also includes a battery-charging hub, you can charge the drained batteries, which means you keep your drone in the air as long as you want. The bundle also includes a car charger, extra low-noise quick-release propellers, and a shoulder bag.

The DJI Mavic Pro is super lightweight at only 1.6 pounds and can be folded down for extreme portability. You can stick it in your backpack and take it anywhere. When it's ready to fly, just unfold it and it's good to go.

It has a four mile operating range, which means you can fly it farther than you can see it. It flies up to 40 miles per hour. The camera can capture 4K and 1080p resolution shots while using stabilization features to keep the pictures clear. There's a smartphone app that syncs with the camera for photography and first-person piloting.
