    On average, how long does DJI usually take to get a drone to a customer in the US?

    For me, it usually takes 3-4 business days. I believe they are now shipping all Phantoms from the east and west coast in the US. When they used to come directly from China, I'd receive them just as quickly.

    Cool, thanks! I ordered....Sunday I think it was? So maybe this weekend I can fly (assuming the batteries are good, I can properly set the thing up, my Mini 2 connects to the P4, the planets are in alignment, etc. etc. etc.)

    They are usually the same price-wise, but most people have to pay tax on top of that when buying from Best Buy.

    Yep, this is true, they taxed me 97.50 for the bird and an extra battery, which cost me 100 bucks -
    • Model: CP.PT.000342
    • SKU: 5132500
    • Quantity: 1

    its interesting, the battery is on their website now for 169!!!!

    I know the feeling of not wanting to wait. Waiting for the Phantom was like I was 8 years old again waiting for Christmas.

    Not bad. You can also get them in one day from Amazon.

    Well, i was taxed 97.50 for the bird and a battery........The battery was only 100 dollars, which they are now 169, not sure if it was on sale or if they jacked the price up, so i guess that kinda made up for the tax......at least thats one way of looking at it ha!

    $169 is the MSRP. They are commonly sold for less than that though if you don't buy them directly from DJI.
