(Pocket-lint) - When it comes to drones, most of us don't want to spend a thousand or more on seeing whether we enjoy piloting them and capturing footage - that's a big outlay on something if you're not a full-time creator.

That's probably the thinking behind DJI's Mavic Mini range, which cuts the price of entry massively, as well as offering up drones that are frankly tiny, making them really convenient to store and take around with you - only time is running out on the deal.

The first Mavic Mini has a great little deal on for Prime Day at Amazon US, which has cut $126.90 off the price of the drone with a 128GB SD card, to take it down to just $397.09 from $523.99. That's a saving of 24 percent on a drone that doesn't see discounts too often.


The version being sold comes bundled with a bunch of handy extra items like spare propellers and more.

We loved the Mavic Mini on review, too, and were really impressed by how it manages to marry great features with a smaller size and reduced price. It shoots beautiful still images and 2K video that's super impressively stabilised and looks great without any processing. 

DJI's app is also one of the best on the market when it comes to controlling your drone, which is something that's absolutely key to ensuring the experience is enjoyable rather than stressful. 

While there is a newer model out now, this is still a really solid investment, and the discount makes that all the more sensible, so if you've ever wondered about shooting some jaw-dropping stuff from the sky, now's your chance.
