Found 9th Mar
I bought one of the dirt-cheap 'pre-owned' DJI Sparks from Maplin earlier and have been hunting for accessories this evening - this led me to find that Amazon have price-matched Maplin on a number of drone related things (mavic pro, spark, remotes etc) and also some other things that Maplin have on sale.

Hope this helps someone and apologies for it not being formatted very well - on mobile so difficult to paste links etc

Are Maplins in administration?

Yes, so purchasing on a credit card or via price-matching is essential

Aye, you are.
Great deal.
Oh I bought my mavic air via Paypal without CC, guess I’m in in deep mud then.
Amazon price matching maplins price of the controller too. Down to £90.99. So amazon currently the cheapest place to get spark plus controller. Beating curry's / official DJI price of £449 for drone plus free controller.
great find
Thanks ordered with the controller

I had both, it was like having a good iPhone and a very good DSLR for recording video. Not in the quality so much, but in how you would take one over the other if you were going out somewhere. The Spark is like the phone, you could just pick it up and just go as it is small and light in weight and it didn't matter if you didn't use it. The Mavic although not much larger when all packed up in the bag was heavier and needs a little more attention to set up like a very good DLSR, so if you took it with you it was slightly more involved and you would be disappointed if you didn't get it up and fly.

Just my weird view, but hope it makes sense and obviously the Mavic shoots more modes, just like a good DSLR.

Around £420 with the controller... still seems a lot for a drone that's been out a while.
Will wait till it hits £250

P.S. For those with a bit of imagination, this can be had for much cheaper via....... Currys

9 days 😭
If you can find them in Maplins stores the Fly More pack is better value at £440, That include the drone, controller, 2nd battery, multi battery charger plate, bag, and spare props / prop guards, problaby about £600 if bought seperate but even jsut the controller and 2nd battery makes the Fly More worthwhile.

Add on the DJI care @ £40 and any warranty service is then via DJI direct so when Maplins fold warranty is not an issue. DJI Cre also gives some accidental damage cover, in that DJI replace the Spark twice in the next 12 months in the event of damage for a small fee.

Wven with the extra for DJI care your still less than £500.
Keep an eye out for Mavic Pro bundles dropping, they have started to in the US prior to the MK 2 launch.

Phone currys and tell them you want a price match with amazon in the dji spark glacier white. Save a bit mote with currys codes off zeek. I got it for 314 with the controller. I got the extra smart battery for £46. Paid with vouchers off zeek to make it cheaper

Nice bit of price matching @tomwatts been waiting for these to drop to the around £300 mark, which then makes them a good little buy for what they were made for, still think they would have sold twice as many if they had sorted the dire battery life out, but for a starter drone they are pretty cook

Great price! I'm jealous! I'm outside of the price match period (by 2 days) might have to return and buy again.

If you sign up,for a new account on a new device&phonenumber&emailaddress&payment card (zeek are funny like that) you can get 300 worth of currys vouchers for about £290 and then phone currys and pay for the drone (GLACIER WHITE) with your £300 of currys vouchers and the £14.30 on a MasterCard (for added protection) total price is just over £300. They will add the free remote to the order as it says in the product description. If you select a pre bundled set it has a different product code and might not work. The extra battery is worth having for £46.66 price matched to amazon (£38.50 at Maplins C&C if you have one near)
