Bundles have always been popular with customers because of the apparent price savings you are led to believe that you are making. However, with so many to choose from, it can be confusing and not all of them are good value. Drones for sale often come with various bundles such as an extra battery, or a backpack, or an extra remote control, and so on. They may even come with an SD card, SD card reader, extra charger, etc. In this post we have reviewed some of the drone bundles that are in fact great value and that we recommend any new drone flyer should get.
What makes a drone bundle good value?
In today’s consumer society, product bundles have become commonplace whenever something is sold. This ranges from game consoles bundled with game DVDs to drones bundled with a whole lot of extra ‘stuff’. But do you actually need the extra stuff?
Ultimately, a bundle is worth getting only if:
- You are going to use all of the products in the bundle OR
- Buying the products you intend of using will cost you more individually than the price of the bundle
Drone bundle #1: This DJI Inspire 1 bundle priced at $2,899 comes with an extra set of propellers, harness for the controller AND a light, durable case you can use to safely transport your drone.
They also offer free delivery. If you are looking to buy a new DJI Inspire 1, then this bundle is great value.
Bought individually, the drone will cost you $2,860 on Amazon so the case comes in literally for free. Buying a new case will cost you about $200-$300 alone.
Drone bundle #2: The next best drone bundle comes straight from DJI.com. This DJI Phantom 3 Professional bundle priced at $1,519 with free delivery comes with 1 x DJI Phantom 3 Pro ($1,259 to buy alone), 1 x Hardshell Backpack ($250 to buy alone) and an extra battery (valued at $159).
Buying this bundle saves you $150 and the best thing about it is that it contains necessary accessories. If you are going to be a regular user of the drone, I guarantee that you will eventually end up buying a backpack and an extra battery to give you an extra 25 minutes of flying time.
Drone bundle #3: This drone bundle is the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced version of drone bundle #2. It comes with the same items, but with the Advanced drone instead of the Professional version and it is priced at $1,259. Savings: ~$150
So there you have it. Just a quick post today outlining the three best drone bundles for sale that we think are worth getting at present.
Of course, you may still choose to buy only the drone for now and consider getting other accessories later on when you have more of an idea of what else you are going to need to make the most of your drone. This approach is also perfectly fine!
