Fly away with a high-quality drone at a low price.

Is this deal for me?

Newegg has the refurbished DJI Phantom 3 Quadcopter Drone on sale for just $314, at a discount of $85 off its regular price of $400. One of the best drones in the past few years, this is a steal at this price.

This is the standard version of the DJI Phantom 3 which was released back in August 2015. While there's been advances in drone technology since then, and the DJI Phantom 4 has since been released, the DJI Phantom 3 is still a modern marvel. It includes an HD camera which can shoot a live video feed straight to your smartphone, and an automatic flight assistant which will return the drone to you mid-flight at the press of a button, thanks to its built-in GPS.

  • View a live image streamed from the drone up to a half mile away on the free DJI Go app using your mobile phone or tablet
  • GPS assisted flight features let you concentrate on getting great images while the drone helps you fly safely. You can achieve advanced camera perspectives with the Point of Interest, Follow Me and Waypoints modes (pending app feature availability)
  • Fly up to 25 minutes with the included intelligent battery. A range of accessories is included:1 battery and charger, 2 full sets of propellers, radio controller, 8GB micro SD card
  • Take stunning 2.7K HD videos and 12 Megapixel photos with the integrated aerial camera and update the remote control first before use.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The DJI Phantom 3 goes for $455 new currently. A $140 price difference is worth talking about, even though this is is a refurbished model. This drone is amazing and $314 is pretty affordable in comparison to what you'd be paying for one of DJI's other drones.
  • Things to know before you buy! - DJI puts every refurbished product through a professional refurbishing process to bring it up to the same standards as that of new products. The company also supplies each product with new parts and new packaging.
