DJI's Mavic Air Black Friday pricing goes live early on Amazon and Best Buy

Though DJI's Black Friday promotion isn't set to officially start until November 18, quick buyers can snatch the DJI Mavic Air 4K quadcopter for $699.99 right now at Amazon. That's the price it'll be selling for during the week leading up to Black Friday. Both the white and black models of the drone are discounted currently, and you can also find this deal live at Best Buy as well.

The Tello Quadcopter is now down to just $79.99, which is 20% off its regular price, and the Mavic Air Fly More Combo is available for $899.99, which is $100 less than its regular selling price. The Tello Quadcopter is great for the beginners and young ones on your list, while the Mavic Air combo is a bit more advanced and offers better video recording.

Other deals were just revealed too that will be coming soon, including discounts on DJI favorites like the DJI Goggles RE and the Osmo Mobile 2. DJI's Spark drone will also be discounted by up to $90 in select bundles.

The Mavic Air got 4.5 stars and an Editor's Choice from CNET in a review that called it "close to perfect." This is a powerful drone that can capture 4K video and 12MP photos. It has a 3-axis gimbal stabilized camera, GPS, and 8GB of internal storage. It can fly up to 43 mph in Sport Mode, has obstacle detection and flight autonomy. It can also actively track a subject. Its biggest fault is that the batteries only last about 15-18 minutes, so you might want to pick up a spare with this order before checking out.
