DJI Air 2S quadcopters land at Amazon lows from $849 in spring sale (Save $150+)

Reg. $999 $849

Amazon is now offering the DJI Air 2S Folding Quadcopter for $849 shipped. Normally fetching $999, this is one of the first chances to save on the drone itself, with $150 in savings attached. It is the lowest we’ve seen from Amazon, but the second-best of all-time following a drop to $799 last April. The Air 2S Fly More Combo is also on sale and dropping down to $1,109 at Amazon, saving you the same 15% from its usual $1,299 going rate. Regardless of which listing you score, this is a notable way to bring home one of the latest DJI quadcopters for far less than retail just in time for spring flights. Packed into a familiar folding form-factor, the Air 2S drone arrives with an aerial photography-ready 1-inch 20 MP camera sensor capable of 5.4K video recording. That’s alongside 31 minutes of flight time for each of the two batteries and tons of other accessories to round out the package. You can also get a closer look in our hands-on review.

The Hover drone uses a unique foldable carbon fiber design to keep its wings safe

The consumer drone market has largely been dominated by DJI in the last few years. As interest grows, there has been a lack of viable alternatives to challenge the Phantom line of quadcopters.

DJI’s new professional-grade drone is incredibly powerful and intelligent

DJI has become synonymous with consumer and professional-grade drones as we’ve entered the fourth generation of its line of products. While we’re seeing deals on its entry-level Phantom 3 regularly, the high-end models reserved for filmmakers rarely drop in price. The consumer-focused drones are easy to fly but lack some advanced features desired by more advanced pilots.

Today, at the National Association of Broadcaster’s annual show in Las Vegas, DJI announced the Matrice 600. A top-of-the-line model that is loaded with features for filmmaking. With cutting-edge specs like a new video link system and camera-specific adaptation, this isn’t for your average weekend warrior.
