Throughout the past few months we’ve seen various summer sales from GeekBuying, but their current “Top RC toy Brands” promotion page appears to offer the widest discounts so far, combining end-of-season deals with back-to-school sales for savings of up to 50 percent off. Some of the products are already sold out, but we can still find good prices on drones and related accessories. They have huge discounts for Chinese warehouses, as well as for ES, DE, IT and US ones.
For August 2018, I chose to share with you 3 different type of drones. From a mini learn-to-fly drone to a versatile GPS enabled foldable drone. So, whether you’re gearing up for Drone Racing World Cup or looking to start with this hobby, it is bound to find something for you.
If you’re in the market for a new drone camera, we’ve also spotted an awesome deal for RunCam’s newest camera.

The Xiaomi MiTu’s built-in camera allows to record HD videos (720p) and take photos with resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

The Mavic Air is DJI’s most compact 4K quadcopter. In terms of size and features is located between the DJI Spark and the Mavic Pro. It became quickly popular due to its portability and excellent image quality. Personally, I’m seriously thinking to switch from Phantom series to a foldable Mavic drone. They are just perfect for every day usage.
Currently, you can find on sale the DJI Mavic Air in two package combinations. RTF and Fly More Combo with 3 flight batteries. You can also opt for 3 different colors (Onyx Black, Arctic White or Flame Red). View Deal
