UPDATE: Thanks to a post on this thread from Slick Deals member Sabin I saw the price on the Mavic Pro indeed go lower as originally posted! I was able to confirm the Mavic Pro has dropped to $500.00 on Brickseek in MULTIPLE States and locations. I was able to personally replicate the deal for the price of 500.00 20 minutes ago. I did have to drive 25 minutes as my Walmart is tiny. Thanks to Sabin for the find, Walmart for the deal, everyone here for the advice, and Slick Deals for the forums!! Soon I'll be flying my first "real" drone!!
Brand new DJI Mavic Pro is on sale at Walmart Stores in & around my area for $749.00 from their previous asking price of $1499.00. I checked Google Stores, B&H, and a few others and this was the cheapest I could find for a NEW Mavic Pro with the controller & battery.

I will be first to admit I do not know a lot about the DJI Phantom Pro 4 V.2 , and its not on my first real drone short list, but I wanted to let people know it is also on sale for $1099.00 from their previous asking price of $1499.00. THIS DRONE IS NOW SHOWING AS 749.00!! I guess the helpful employee really knew his business!!

The prices above do NOT include local, state, or any sales taxes that may raise the final "out the door" prices of these items. Although I would think everyone would be aware of their local sales taxes some in my first Slick Deals post felt it should be mentioned.

Due to traveling for a family members health care needs I was able to stop in several Walmart Stores yesterday to look for and pick up some great deals posted on this site. I noticed that several of them had the drones listed above at the prices above. At the second to last store I remembered that some folks seem displeased about some deals due to brick seek showing not available or the product not being available just a low price tag. I thought checking availability in person would be better to show it was a real available deal rather then just a brickseek link.

Here is the Brick Seek Link for the Mavic Pro:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Dji-Ma...y/54889431

https://brickseek.com/walmart-inv...u=54889431

Both of the last two stores had at least two of the Mavic Pro's in stock. I was speaking to a GREAT (rare) Walmart Electronics Employee (Drone Enthusiast) and he assured me that the "cage" in the back had two of the Phantom 4 Pro V.2's in it.(card said "SDR") He also said he was watching one for himself, asked why I wasn't interested in the 4 Pro V.2 as he felt it was the best drone there, and that he was going to grab it when the price dropped AGAIN in 10-14 days. He offered to get the manager to get one if I was interested but he had been kind and I knew I was NOT buying one right then. I know folks have different opinions on the pro, air, mavic 2, etc but I wanted to post this in case someone was looking for one. THANKS TO EVERYONE for all the help on my first post & for all the SLICK DEALS!!!

Don't forget to register your drone with the FAA: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/

(Part 107 registration is if you intend to use it for commercial use {i.e. use for a business or sell photos/videos} and Recreation Flyers is for those doing it just for fun)

None around me.

At this point I wouldn't buy a new Mavic Pro unless I got it for a lot cheaper than this. At this price I'd rather have a Mavic Air.

Great job on the post and findings, but this price is not soo hot for this drone. This has gone as low as $549 with microcenter about a year ago. I bought one and sold it for $650. DJI is the worst company to deal with, good luck if this goes bad. I know, I learned the hard way.

Thanks for your reply!! To be honest if I could find one at 549.00 USD I am not sure I could resist!! Smilie I have been saving for a Mavic Air for a while (missing all the deals) but almost went for a DJI Spark when I found the controller combo for 329.00 USD (my first post) . I thought DJI was the best in the consumer drone market but have never dealt with them directly. Who/What would you recommend rather then the DJI Mavic Air? New rumors & pics yesterday have shown a new DJI Mavic Mini or Spark 2 so that makes me want to wait a bit more as well.

Thanks for your reply!! The Mavic Air is what I originally started saving for to be my first "real drone". Wish I could get one of the 500-550 USD deals people see!

This is what I've been waiting for as well. There's plenty of flymore combo around 879 but I just keep holding off! Flying my Spark until then

Isn't this typical price given how old the orginial mavic pro is. If this was the mavic pro 2 then sure is a deal, but I remember Ebay and other places at this price back during last year holiday when they were trying to clear out for the mavic 2.

DJI is no question the best consumer drone company in terms of hardware, software, innovation and price. They have had a reputation for poor Customer service in the past which I believe stems from cultural differences in consumer business practices in China vs US. I do think they have made a ton of progress in the last 5 years with respect to their customer service and anecdotally I am personally satisfied with the quality of customer service at this point. In terms of new drones coming this year from what I have seen it looks most likely to be either a spark 2 or a Mavic "mini". That being said i would never buy a brand new model DJI. 1. Because they innovate at such a fast pace the value will plummet quickly. 2. There are bound to be some hiccups in new releases and hiccups + drones don't mix well.
