The 11 best Cyber Monday 2023 drone deals we found

Black Friday deals used to be about massive long lines at department stores to find the best deals, while Cyber Monday was created to encourage online shopping. And not only are we online shopping this year, but Cyber Monday 2023 is bringing tons of incredible drone deals.

With more sales than ever, you may be experiencing some consumer fatigue or indecision. Are those deals good? Are you missing out on a better deal? After all, we already shared many Black Friday 2023 drone deals early last week and even more deals on actual Black Friday 2023.

The Drone Girl found the 11 best Cyber Monday 2023 drone deals, so you can stop worrying if there’s a better deal out there and focus on what matters: purchasing the perfect gift. 

Keep in mind that most Cyber Monday 2023 deals end tonight at midnight, so you’ll want to act fast.

1. 30% off the DJI Avata (save up to $429)

Several DJI products, including other drones, are discounted, but the DJI Avata takes the prize for the largest markdown of any DJI product. 

Both the DJI Avata Explorer Combo and Pro-View Combos are on sale now till midnight. The Explorer Combo comes with the DJI Goggles Integra while the Pro-View comes with the DJI Goggles 2. Here is our full guide on how to turn the Mavic 3 into an FPV drone, along with a more detailed breakdown of the two types of DJI FPV goggles. 

For Cyber Monday 2023, you can get either combo for under $1,000. For an FPV drone that is perfect for flying inside and still has a high-quality camera, that is a pretty solid deal. 

If you have all been thinking about getting into the world of drone racing, it’ll be hard to find a better deal than this.

2. Drone Pilot’s Ground School Part 107 test prep course $107 off all courses 

The Drone Ground School’s Black Friday, or Fly-Day, sale ends tonight. It’s not just a fantastic deal; it’s also a thoughtful gift, as passing the Part 107 test is a crucial step for any serious drone pilot

Plus, the Drone Pilot Ground School is one of the best Part 107 drone test prep courses. 

The Drone Pilot Ground School’s Fly-Day sale offers three different test-prep package levels to choose from, each $107 off. 

Also, the Guided Study course is rarely on sale, another reason why it has made our list of best deals. With a pass or don’t pay guarantee on all three programs, your gift comes with added assurance that you’ve made the right choice.

3. 20% off the Autel EVO Lite+ Drone (save $210) 

The Autel EVO Lite+ is one of the top non-DJI camera drones and is also one of the best non-DJI drone deals for Cyber Monday 2023. The Autel EVO Lite+ stands out by offering a blend of the DJI Mavic 3’s impressive features while maintaining a price point in line with the DJI Mini 3 Pro (and that’s before the discount).

With a 1-inch CMOS sensor and 6K video capabilities, it’s an ideal gift for photographers seeking a high-end drone without the budget for a DJI Mavic 3. 

Priced at $799 (usually $1,139), the package includes the drone, remote controller, battery, and more. While the Autel EVO Lite+ is available on sale at both B&H Photo and Amazon, opting for Amazon will save you an additional $10.

4. 25% off the Freefly Alta X (save $3,800)

Discounts on enterprise drone gear are a rarity due to the nature of commercial equipment, as businesses are typically less price-sensitive compared to consumers. Therefore, most Cyber Monday 2023 deals typically focus on consumer gear. 

However, if you’re starting a small business or are a thrifty business owner, seize the opportunity to benefit from this uncommon deal on an American-made drone.

5. 22% off the Autel Robotics EVO II DUAL 640T RTK Rugged Bundle V3 (save $1,200)

The Freefly Alta X isn’t the only enterprise drone on sale, though. Here’s another solid enterprise pick that isn’t just on sale, but it’s already far cheaper to begin with — making it a potentially better pick for startups or sole proprietor businesses.

The Autel Robotics EVO II DUAL 640T RTK Rugged Bundle V3 stands out as a critical tool for public safety use cases, thanks to its dual 50MP 4K HDR visual camera and 640 x 512 thermal imaging camera.

Cyber Monday 2023 DJI Mini 4 ProCyber Monday 2023 DJI Mini 4 Pro

6. 43% off the FPVtosky hard case (save $30)

Of all the Cyber Monday 2023 drone cases on sale, this one offered the biggest discount for the best value. The case is designed specifically for the recently released DJI Mini 4 Pro (but also works with the DJI Mini 3 Pro).

It’s a waterproof hard case with a sturdy and stable handle, which is easy to lift.

For drones other than the Mini 4 Pro, there are excellent on-sale options available, regardless of your drone model. For example, The Nanuk 925 case made for the DJI Mavic 3 Pro/Pro Cine is on sale at B&H Photo (now $149.96, originally $199.95).

Cyber Monday 2023 DJI Action 2Cyber Monday 2023 DJI Action 2

7. 23% off the DJI Action 2 Dual Screen Combo & Power Combo (save $90)

This is the biggest non-drone DJI product discount we have seen for Cyber Monday 2023. The DJI Action 2 has a modular design, primarily holding gadgets and gizmos together via magnetism.  

It’s the perfect compact camera for on-the-go video recording. The Action 2 is an excellent gift for anyone who loves filming videos! The camera quality is excellent, even in indoor environments.

8. 42% off the Samsung PRO Plus microSD memory card + adapter (save up to $16)

The Samsung PRO Plus microSD memory card recently made our list as one of the best memory cards for drones. Memory cards are ideal for drone users because you can never have too many! 

Various configurations and deals are available based on memory card size and the inclusion of a USB reader. The cheapest option is a 128 GB card for $10.99, a perfect stocking stuffer. However, the biggest savings come in if you purchase the 256 GB with a USB reader.

Cyber Monday 2023 JBL HeadphonesCyber Monday 2023 JBL Headphones

9. 50% off JBL wireless on-ear headphones (save $25)

This is the best non-drone-related product deal you’ll find on this list. And while technically not for your drone, they will very likely be well-received by the type of person who loves drones.  

Finding a product with over a 40% discount is rare these days, making the JBL headphones at 50% off quite a significant deal. 

The headphones feature the JBL pure bass sound, Bluetooth connectivity, and 40 hours of battery life. Plus, beyond their functional benefits headphones have become fashion accessories and the JBL headphones come in four different colors: black, blue, white, and rose. 

DJI Mini 3 Fly More ComboDJI Mini 3 Fly More Combo

10. 12% off the DJI Mini 3 Fly More Combo (save $99)

Though not as substantial as the DJI Avata discount, the DJI Mini 3 is already reasonably priced, making any discount a welcome addition. 

With the DJI Mini 3 Fly More Combo, you’ll get the Mini 3, the RC controller, a shoulder bag, intelligent flight batteries, and other accessories. The DJI Mini line is often known as DJI’s drone line for beginners. The Fly More combo comes with everything a beginner needs, so I can’t think of a better gift for the novice drone lover in your life. 

If you do end up purchasing this as a first-time drone, consider the Drones 101 course from Drone Launch Academy, the course is currently 50% off. 

DJI Mini 2 SEDJI Mini 2 SE

11. 17% off the DJI Mini 2 SE Drone (save $40) — plus gift with purchase

Look, the DJI Mini 2 SE drone is not necessarily my favorite of the bunch of DJI drones under $500, but it’s so hard to pass up this drone given the price point. It’s normally $340, but given its Cyber Monday 2023 sale price at $299, that puts this in the realm of so many more aspiring Santas.

Ultimately someone who is less cost-conscious should go for the above DJI Mini 3 deal. But if you’re looking to give someone a high-quality drone under $300, this is the best deal you’ll find — it’s hardly even a question.

Plus, when you buy it this Cyber Monday from B&H Photo, they throw in a nice little bonus gift — a free propeller holder. That’s not huge (it’s worth about $11) on its own, but it makes for a nice little bonus stocking stuffer.
