Unlike previous years when I got tons of promotion emails with countless 11.11 drone deals, in 2022 looks like something changed. This year I got only a few marketing emails regarding drone discounts from Aliexpress, Banggood, Gearbest, Geekbuying, and others.
Double 11, or Singles’ Day, originated from the Bachelors’ Day (光棍节 in Chinese) celebrated for the first time in 1993 at Nanjing University. Starting in 2009, it has become the biggest shopping festival in the world, similar to, but grossing several times more than, Black Friday in the USA. Alibaba (Aliexpress) turned the event into a shopping festival that was gradually adopted by other e-commerce platforms. The major e-commerce sites in China, such as Banggood, TomTop, Tmall, and more, offer significant discounts and promotions to boost sales during the shopping festival.

During the 11.11 sales festival, you can buy the 4DRC V4 drone for a bargain. As a beginner quadcopter, the features are pretty basic. However, even for an advanced user, the quad is a good buy. The flight performance is good, and the camera takes good photos and videos during the day with good light.
This 4DRC V4 measures 12*7.7*5.5cm (with folded arms), which makes it a small-sized drone, and by being a foldable model, carrying it from one to another will not represent a problem for you being perfect for travelers. When folded, the drone can perfectly fit in your pocket or inside your backpack, and you will feel it because it weighs less than 100 grams.
Regarding its flight time, we can say that this drone offers a good amount of flying time due to its 3.7V 1600mAh battery. Each battery will offer a great flight time of around 15-20 minutes. Check deal

The ZLL SG906 MAX2 is a low-cost GPS-enabled 4K drone with many good features and is one of the best in its price range.

Like most similarly priced drones, the SG906 Pro 2 has several other features that will make flying more enjoyable. One of these features is autonomous or intelligent flight modes. When these modes are activated, you can fly the drone hands-free. Thanks to the fail-safe return to home (RTH) function, in case of transmitter signal loss or low flight battery voltage, the drone will return autonomously to the take-off point.
One thing you must note is that the drone weighs 651g (including the OA module), which means you will need to register it if you live in the UK, Canada, or the USA. Use this BGdf902b discount code when ordering. Check deal
Happy Double 11 shopping!
