If you’ve always wanted to try drone photography, one of Amazon’s Prime Day deals might be your ticket to the hobby. The retailer has discounted the DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo from $599 to $479. The bundle includes almost everything you need to get the most out of DJI’s entry-level drone, including two spare batteries, a charging station, and a carrying case for the aircraft. At $479, you’re effectively paying $60 more than it would cost to buy the standard $419 Mini 2 kit alone.
Buy DJI Mini 2 Fly More Combo at Amazon – $479
Although Engadget didn’t get a chance to review the Mini 2, it’s widely considered to be one of the best beginner drones you can buy. With DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 transmission system and a 2,250 mAh battery, the Mini 2 offers a range of up to 10 kilometers and a flight time of 31 minutes in ideal conditions. It can also record smooth 4K videos at 30 frames per second thanks to a 12-megapixel sensor. Best of all, the entire drone weighs just under 250 grams, so you don’t have to register it with the Federal Aviation Administration — but you’re still required to fly it safely.
The only feature you won’t find on the Mini 2 is obstacle avoidance, but that’s to be expected on a drone in the $450 price range. You’ll have to spend significantly more on an aircraft like the DJI Mini 3 Pro to find this functionality. At this point you are looking at a premium drone.
