    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.

    I just bought (Yesterday) a Phantom 2 Vision and a lot of extras from http://www.helipal.com

    I'm living in New Zealand and I couldn't find any resellers here.

    So Helipal calculated the price from US $ to NZ$

    Their total price in NZ$ was 2,500.00 but when I use http://www.nzforex.co.nz/currency-converter to calculate the currency from US$ to NZ its around NZ $200 less???
    So I wonder which currency converter they are using.

    Does anyone have experience with these guys?

    I have email them and asked for a refund.

    Sorry about my English (it's not my first language)

    They aren't bad. But that price is steep.

    Hi KSC

    Wow you was quick, I nearly just hit the submit button :D

    Thanks for your answer.

    Just to clarify, it's not the price, which seem to be ok, its the currency calculation. $200 NZ$ that is a lot.

    I don't know what calculator they are using. Perhaps there is also a larger fee for international credit card orders. Not sure exactly.
