Whether you’re looking to buy your first drone, upgrade your current drone or find the perfect gift for a special someone, Uplift Drones are here to help. Last Christmas, drones came in as one of the most popular gifts for kids, partners and family – and it will be no different this year! With Christmas 2018 just weeks away, let’s look at the most popular drones and where you can find the best deals this winter…
DJI Mavic 2 Pro
Mavic 2 Pro is the world’s first drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera for outstanding image quality with superior light and colour performance and sits on the boundary of high-end consumer to entry-level commercial platforms. Housing a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit colour profile, the camera captures four times as many levels of colour per channel compared to Mavic Pro, to provide maximum flexibility for photo and video editing. This easy-to-use drone is guaranteed to take photography and videography to the next level whether you’re a complete beginner or experienced drone pilot.

DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
Mavic 2 Zoom is DJI’s first consumer drone with zoom – powered by a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor – providing dynamic perspective for a new era of aerial imaging and storytelling. With Mavic 2 Zoom, you can get closer to your subject at a moment’s notice by combining two-times optical zoom (24-48 mm) with two-times digital zoom to create a 98mm telephoto lens that captures lossless video in full HD resolution. Being the only DJI drone to feature Dolly Zoom (an exclusive intelligent flight mode) this aircraft is the perfect “prosumer” solution for landscape photography and videography.

Get the hang of flying a mini-quadcopter, performing aerial stunts and shooting quick videos before committing to a more advanced (and expensive!) drone. Using the Tello App you can ‘Throw and Go’ (start flying by tossing your drone in the air) perform ‘8D Flips’ (slide on-screen to perform impressive aerial stunts) and try out ‘Bounce Mode’ where the Tello flies and down automatically from your hand.
Equipped with a high-quality image processor, Tello shoots incredible photos and videos. Even if you don’t know how to fly, you can record pro-level videos with EZ Shots and share them on social media from your smartphone. Powered by DJI technology, the Ryze Tello makes the perfect entry-level drone for beginners!
