From DJI’ Thanksgiving or Black Friday offering, we go right into DJI Winter Holiday offering for the upcoming Christmas and/or Holiday Season. The Chinese drone manufacturer is offering up to 30% discounts on select products as well as a Double DJI Credit. Instead of the normal 1% of the total value, DJI will now give you 2% DJI Credit for any order placed during the Winter Holiday Sale.

Again, DJI has some really good offers, including $100 off the DJI Spark, although our team from 9to5Toys also has a better deal on the Spark at $289, $150 off the DJI Mavic Pro Fly More Combo, $50 off the Mavic Pro Alpine White Combo, free intelligent flight battery with Phantom 4 Advanced & Pro, $50 off DJI Goggles, $100 off Osmo Mobile & $90 off Osmo+.

DJI launched a few new accessories for the DJI Spark (still priced at $399!), our favorite mini-drone. Last week they introduced the Spark Portable Power Charging Station for USD $89, which is a battery-powered charger for up to three Spark batteries. The charger itself can be fully charged in 1 hour and 35 minutes and can in turn charge up to three Spark batteries in 2.5 hours with its own 5000 mAh battery.

This week DJI introduces the Spark Portable Power Pack for USD $139 but the DJI website is unclear about what you will be getting when you buy this item.

Update: DJI updated their website on 11/30. The Spark Portable Power Pack does include two batteries.

Antarctica has to be one of the least human-friendly places on earth, one could visit in terms of weather conditions, yet last week it was the scene of some amazing feats, including the fastest Antarctic mile ever run, as well as the Antarctic Ice Marathon and 100k(!) race events. The event has been documented partly by drone in the amazing video you can see below. The scenery at the Union Glacier in Antarctica, just 650 miles from the South Pole, is amazingly beautiful and the drone footage is very cinematic.

Grab a coffee and enjoy watching this short movie.
