The gift of flight: Buy drones for Christmas
We know many of you do not celebrate Christmas, but we can all take advantage of some great drone deals for the holidays. Whether you are shopping for yourself or for a loved one, here are some drones on sale this year.
Most of these drone deals will last the entire holiday season. Some are just new prices that will remain in place into the new year and beyond.
Following the great Black Friday deals from last month, more than a few top manufacturers have new drone deals on deck. DJI and UVify are leading the way in terms of savings, but sales go beyond the brands, look for general deals from most re-sellers.
