Taking to the skies with a DJI drone for some aerial photography is getting cheaper than ever this week now that the company just revealed it’s hosting a big back-to-school promo.

Coming alongside a big software update for its tiny Spark drone, DJI announced today that it’s offering big discounts on some of its most popular drones and handheld cameras.

Students can get a 12% discount on the Spark Fly More combo, bringing its price tag down from $699 to just $615. The Mavic Pro combo received a price cut of $130 and is now available for $1,169.

You can also get a deal on DJI Goggles that connect to both drones, giving you get a bird’s eye view of the skies while also controlling both aircraft yaw and camera tilt with your head. DJI is even dropping the price on it’s Osmo Mobile stabilizer that works with iPhones and Android phones to provide buttery smooth video.

The promo prices on the Spark are only available for a few days so you better act quickly if you want in. In order to receive a discount, you need to be a student, educator or part of an academic research staff with an approved educational email address.

If you’re looking for an alternative to DJI, Parrot is also having some killer deals on its drones. The Bebop 2 Adventurerer is now only $579. Or you can go big and grab the innovative Disco Adventurer for just $999.
