£899 - DJI Mavic Pro Quadcopter Drone 4K Camera - In-store only at Maplin (Possible 6 months BNPL)

Found 29th Sep 2017
Admittedly this may be considered an expensive toy by some, but for a UK based supplier with stock available nationwide it seems a cracking deal.

For this weekend only you can pick up the DJI Mavic Pro at £899 in-store at Maplin.

Currently on offer at John Lewis at £974 and others, so a saving of £75 and £200 off the RRP.

They also offer 6 months BNPL instore, so it's not even like you have to part with a huge amount on the day. (Just don't tell your significant other )

Just show the link below to qualify:

No just the basic model, although the Red Spark combo is on offer £599.
Read the post as £89.99 and thought ... "Yeh, maybe I could swing for that ...."

I'd have a fleet of them at that price!

No I checked in store... Pity
Great drone... love it. I picked up the Fly More pack for £1040 last week. Didn't post the deal as it was an eBay seller, but they have sold over 100 units. After having bought the Phantom Vision 3 years ago, I have to say this is light years ahead.
Could the cold voters find me a better deal?
I really want the spark to drop in price. £599 for the fly more is tempting. but still a lot for something I dunno how much I am going to use, I just need one

Where and what do you guys do with these Mavic's to justify the extra spend?
£974 on Amazon and if you have a nus discount there's 20% off available as well!

You don't have to use it. Just look at it every day. Knowing that you own one gives the satisfaction that's needed
Won't John Lewis price match this?
Silly question probably but what does the Fly More pack give you? Bigger battery?

Also do we have to register or get a license for these yet?

Is it possible to get insurance for it if its lost or damaged?

Cheers

The combo gives you extra batteries and some extra accessories. More batteries give you more flying time when out so they're a must.

No need to register yet but will have to register with DJI, no personal info needed.

Can get third party insurance or use DJIs Care Refresh which allows you to have two replacements for a small (small compared to how much a replacement of a mavic would cost you)fee.

Ah I see. Cool! Thanks

I visited a reservoir the other day, would it be safe to fly the drone over it and over the overflow to get good shots of it?

The overflow is obviously open to allow water to flow in if it got too full, would this drone handle that ok and not drop as it went over it etc?

JL price matched Argos price £974 (before they dropped it to that price) will they match Maplin in store? If so I will go back and get a refund as it was only end of last week I brought mine

Shouldn't be a problem but you'll have to check the DJI map to see if this is in a No Fly Zone

Someone's already done it!! Didn't think of looking here before lol

How does this compare to the Karma Drone by GoPro that I’m considering buying.
Scan PC have refurbished ones for £799...I got a P3 a few months back for £339 and it was like new!

Depends what you want from a drone. From my little research, the go pro camera is better but the Mavic is smaller and has much more 'drone' features.

Think the Karma comes with it's own screen on the controller too.

Don't forget double nectar points, 3% cashback via Visa Offers, 4% Topcashback on-card on first £200 and potentially 10% NUS discount in-store (not sure if they'd offer it in conjunction with this though) So could be £777 plus £8ish Nectar points.
Heat - I have this exact model and paid £200 more! Great price!!!
Bought this for my hubby - always out using it!
Have one. Crushed it severely twice and still going after flex cable replacement done by me. Great smart features and good video quality. On the other side I think flying drones will be nearly impossible in this country in the next few years thanks to wreckless owners.

I looked at drones recently and decided that it will be the Mavic Fly Longer or nothing. I don't have £1400 quid so I guess it'll be nothing for now
Compared to drones which are cheap, this is on another planet. I would be using mine every day if I could. The only worry I have is that I think the government is going to crack down on them in the future.
Might pick one of these up for my trip to the Grand Canyon next year

Went to the Maplins yesterday to ask about 10% NUS offer. No luck, only on additional full priceitems - batteries, remote, etc.
Got one for sale if anyone interested. 30mins use with flymore pack.

The Mavic is much better, I originally wanted the Karma as I already wanted a GoPro5 and stabiliser so it made sense to get it with the drone and then could use the other parts when not using the drone. However even though the dropping from the sky issue has been fixed, the Karma still suffers from a shorter range, less batterylife, some hover issues and the Mavic folds up much smaller, has front/underside sensors and more sophisticated automated flying modes. I bought the Mavic and since bought the Yi 4K and a Zhiyun gimbal for use on the MTB, the latter particularly is a better option for the MTB so I don't regret the choice of Mavic at all over the Karma.

At this point, I would wait for the mavic 2 release. The 60% quieter really will make a difference and the extra battery life isn't bad either.
It’s the old version hence why they’re all bringing the price down. New platinum version been launched for pre-order. Small improvements compared to old model. Still a good offer though considering the poor amount of improvements on the new version. 3 min more flying time and quieter props. eBay has fly more combos for just over £1k compared to the £1,359 RRp
Costco are doing the DJI Mavic pro Drone and Fly more Combo for £1,199.98 (incs Vat)

Bloody hell! There goes my motive to purchase one.

This seems to be the case in all good places I'd fly a drone. Italy you require 3rd party insurance and when I did a quick quote it worked out at £280.

A minority of idiots has spolit it for everyone, I think there will be major crackdowns and licence requirmwents in the futurer
