If you are considering buying a DJI Mavic Pro drone I would suggest you put a rain check on it for the time being. The Mavic Air has recently been released for sale in some countries, and is available for pre-order in other countries and the drone community has gone nuts for it.
The DJI Mavic Pro drone was the “must have drone” however there are signs this isn’t going to be the case for much longer, and the Mavic Air is going to take on the role. If you are happy with the Mavic Pro (and let’s face it – who wouldn’t be?) and don’t need or want what the Mavic Air has to offer this is going to be a good thing.
When new models are released the price of existing models often take a plummet. After all, you don’t pay top dollar for “old technology” right? If you are prepared to buy an “old model” drone such as the Mavic Pro there are going to be loads of deals around and there is a good chance you are going to save yourself a lot of money.
Once the Mavic Air is actually released to the general public and they are readily available on the shelves I predict the cost of the Mavic Pro is going to go down, and quite a bit. This doesn’t help if you want a Mavic Pro right now but if you are prepared to wait you will make a saving, and I don’t think you will have to wait too long. The wheels are in motion with the Mavic Air, pre-orders are being taken and they are going to available to buy from stores shortly.
The Mavic Pro drone has been on my wish list for a while however it is damn expensive, however a fall in price (when the Mavic air is released of course) may well give me the excuse to buy one.
There are two online stores that discount prices quicker than anywhere else and these are, as I am sure you have already guessed: Amazon and eBay.
