    I am looking to get in the the Phantom world. Been doing some reading for the last few weeks. I have come across a DJI Phantom V1.2 with a GoPro Hero3 Black for around $700. Now my questions is. Does this sound like a good deal? Says he has only owned it a few months. I own a Hero3 now so i know all about it and its worth. More concerned about the Phantom. Is V1.2 the latest version?

    No, I would walk away from it. Its not the latest version, latest is 1.1.1, and you already have the camera. Buy the Phantom for $479.00, use your camera and save the money, plus you gain if you buy brand new........not used (he has no warranty).

    Thanks for the response guys. The extras that it comes with is an anti-vibration carbon fiber camera mount, high-end 32GB lexar microSD card, extra propellers, installed prop guards, prop balancer, and an extra battery. If he is not willing to come down on price i will walk away and buy new.
