Drone deals to watch ahead of Amazon’s Prime Day event

Tomorrow begins the big Amazon Prime Day event which will run for 48 hours and feature plenty of sitewide savings. While deals on drones are hard to come by, a few are out there. And, there are also plenty of accessories you might need to go along with your drone.

Real drone deals during Amazon Prime Day

Most notably, you’ll find that Autel is discounting its new drones, the Nano+ and Lite+, by 20%. I have been able to fly both of these drones for a while now and think they would be great mics at these prices. The Lite+ has become my go-to drone for aerial photography with its massive 6K sensor on the front. The offer is only available on July 12 and 13, so be sure to set a reminder if you want to add an Autel drone to your collection.

Another drone on sale is ZeroZero’s VCOPTR Falcon that we featured earlier this month. The twin-rotor drone with an extra battery and other items can be found for $899 ($300 off). It’s a unique and fun drone to fly if that’s something you’re looking to have.

Other offers to support the use of your drone

Of course, you need more than just drones to capture awesome aerial footage. First, you need a place to store all the video! Samsung, Lexar, and PNY all sell MicroSD cards capable of recording your drone’s video capture.

  • Samsung Pro Endurance 128GB – $19.99 (reg. $27.99)
  • Lexas PLAY 256 GB – $29.99 (reg. $45.99)
  • PNY Elite-X 64GB 3-Pack – $18.49 (reg. $27.99)

If you’re looking for a place to dump your footage in the field, Western Digital has a few portable SSDs on sale that you can grab for $109.99 (reg. $199.99). While I’m not suggesting using a hard drive in the field, if you need something that will stay on your desk while in use, there are plenty of external hard drives on sale. Western Digital has a 1TB option for as little as $50.99 (reg. $59.99) and 5TB version for $118.99 (reg. 164.99). Toshiba also offers a wide range of portable hard drive options for as little as $44.99

If you need something larger, perhaps for permanent storage of past projects, then both western digital and TERRAMASTER save money for multi-disk NAS solutions.

Most of these deals are already available for you to take advantage of on Amazon. Many more offers will appear tomorrow as Prime Day is in full swing. We suggest you follow with 9to5Toys as we cover the 48-hour event around the clock.
