Anyone who’s shopped for a consumer-friendly drone before knows that DJI is the market’s uncontested leader. They also know that it’s oddly hard to find DJI drones on sale. (And if/when it happens, they still tend to skew expensive.) Even ahead of Black Friday 2022, we’re only seeing one DJI model(opens in a new tab) enjoying a discount across major retailers.
It’s playtime: LEGO sets, Magic Mixies, and more big 2022 toys are already at Black Friday prices
If you’re trying to score a good deal on a drone this holiday season (without completely blowing your budget), we recommend expanding your search to other brands like Contixo, Holy Stone, and Autel Robotics. Below, you’ll find a running list of the best Black Friday deals on drones, from fancy 4K cameras suited for aerial photography to cheap kid-friendly RCs.
Note: Any newly added or updated deals have been marked with a ✨, while deals with a

4K drone deals
Why we like it
If you’ve got some wiggle room in your budget, the DJI FPV(opens in a new tab) is a really cool drone for advanced users. It can shoot 4K/60fps video with a 150-degree FOV at up to 120 Mbps and reach a max speed of about 87 miles per hour, with up to 20 minutes of runtime and safety features like obstacle sensing that keep it safe during adventurous flights. It comes with goggles for a first-person flight experience (as opposed to just watching its footage from your phone), and can be paired with multiple goggles to share the flight with your friends in real time.
The DJI FPV Combo (with the drone itself, goggles, a remote controller, batteries, a power adapter, and other accessories) retailed for $999 on Amazon(opens in a new tab) last Black Friday, but this year it’s on sale there for only $899. That’s 31% off its $1,299 MSRP and its lowest price to date. (If it sells out there, check Best Buy(opens in a new tab): They had it in stock for $899.99 at the time of writing.)

The Holy Stone HS190 typically retails for $32.99 on the brand’s website, but Amazon will give it to you for just $23.93 with another Prime-exclusive coupon — that’s a 27% savings. (It rarely ever dips below $24.)
