As we are getting nearer to spring and hopefully better drone-flying weather, DJI has quietly lowered the price on the Mavic 2 Pro (DJI, Amazon) and Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 (DJI, Amazon). Both drones can now be bought at the official DJI online store for $1,599. That is some welcome news for sure!
DJI lowers price on the Mavic 2 Pro and Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 to $1,599
Arguably two of DJI’s most capable drones have just seen a significant price reduction. Last year we saw the price for both drones go up as a result of the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China and the subsequent implementation of tariffs.
As recently as last week, you would have paid $1,729 for either a DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. Seeing DJI lower the price to $1,599 is a very welcome surprise.
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro was originally introduced for $1,449 so at $1,599 the popular quadcopter is still quite a bit more expensive than when it was first launched. the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 has recently been re-introduced after having been unavailable for most of 2019 due to a shortage of components.
- The DJI Mavic 2 Pro with the standard RC is now available for $1,599 (DJI, Amazon)
- The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 with the standard RC is now available for $1,599 (DJI, Amazon).
During CES, a spokesperson from DJI told me that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will be produced for as long as there is strong customer demand. So, until a newer, better and more capable DJI drone comes along, I expect the Chinese drone manufacturer to keep making this popular quadcopter.
It does seem that no prices for other DJI products have been lowered.
