Save $350 on the DJI Mavic Air drone (Update: Sold out)

Now down to $549, with a memory card and spare battery included free. Or get the Fly More Combo (DJI-refurbished) for $20 more.

Drone popularity has surged in recent weeks, and no surprise there: Flying a quadcopter is a fun activity you can do from the comfort (and social safety) of your own yard. And although there are plenty of toy drones you can get for $100 or less, anyone serious about the sport is no doubt eyeballing a DJI model.

Like this one: For a limited time, and while supplies last, BuyDig has the DJI Mavic Air for $549. That's $50 less than just a couple weeks ago, which was already a $200 savings. And BuyDig throws in a 32GB SanDisk memory card and a second battery, which have a combined value of $104. Put simply: Best Mavic Air deal to date.

Update: BuyDig's supply is running low, but there's another option you might want to consider. DroneNerds has the DJI-refurbished Mavic Air Fly More Combo for $569 with promo code REV5. That nets you three batteries instead of two, a battery charging hub, extra propellers, a travel bag and more. It's literally good as new, right down to the full manufacturer's warranty.

Although this quad is a couple years old, there's nothing dated about the compact folding design, 4K-resolution camera, three-axis gimbal or obstacle-avoidance features.

Read CNET's DJI Mavic Air review to learn more. Verdict: "A folding 4K mini drone that's close to perfect" and the best drone for photos and videos, period.

My advice: If you're the least bit interested, grab one of these before they're gone. They will be, and soon.
