In order to help my readers find the best drone for their budget, I recently created the “Drones by Price” section on FirstQuadcopter. I thought it would be also helpful to share some great drone savings. Especially that 11.11 will be next weekend and usually it comes with huge drone discounts.
Probably Double Eleven is the world’s second most expected day for shipping enthusiasts, of course, after Black Friday. While “Black Friday” (day following Thanksgiving Day) became popular thanks to the massive price drops in the US local stores, “11.11 aka Single’s Days” was introduced by Chinese online stores (like: AliExpress, Banggood, Geekbuying, Gearbest, HobbyWow, TomTop, …).
Drone deals during 11.11.2017
During 11.11, you can also win coins playing various games, which can be converted in additional discount coupons.
On Double Eleven there are also unique deals, applied for only one pieces. If you have luck and catch one, you can get a Phantom 4 Pro for only $100 or even less. Firstly, I thought these deals are fake in order to attract more customers, then, last 11.11, one of my friends managed to purchase a 150$ drone for only $9.99.
VISUO XS809HW, a Mavic clone with 30% discount
In 2017, various Mavic Pro clones have been announced. IMHO, one of the most successful of them was the VISUO XS809HW. While keeping a friendly price tag, it perfectly reassembled the DJIs design. You can opt between two versions, one with 0.3Mp camera and one with 2MP camera.
Thanks to the 900 mAh battery, the XS809HW has one of the best flight autonomy among toy grade drones.

Like most of the micro FPV racing drones, the Eachine E013 follows the ducted propeller design of the popular Tiny Whoop / Blade Inductrix. The basic idea of this concept is to improve the efficiency of the propellers.
