DJI Avata is the most exciting drone I've ever flown and now it's a Black Friday doorbuster!

Flying a true FPV drone is exciting, and as I found out when reviewing the DJI Avata (with and without my son) the company managed to cram the sheer joy of flight into a product, while also producing amazing 4K video you can use in serious projects if you choose. With big discounts of up to $429, the Avata is now our pick of the Black Friday drone deals

The Avata is available in a couple of bundles – both of which are getting a healthy discount. These are the Explorer and the Pro-View, the principle difference being the immersive goggles. 

The cheaper Explorer bundle comes with the 'Integra' goggles (which let you 'sit' in the drone's cockpit). Despite being the 'cheaper' option, they still have OLED displays and definitely feel high quality compared to a lot of FPV goggles out there. 

The Pro-View, as you might guess from the name, offers slightly more 'Pro', and – preferred by some – the battery is separated and worn, connected by a cable, somewhere convenient like your pocket, reducing the load on your head.
