    So, picked up a 2nd P4 today at a Cleveland store and on the label it said Phantom 4 NA. Drove 30min to another store for a 3rd Phantom 4 and this one says Phantom 4 USA. Obviously NA means North America but why would one label say NA and another say USA. As far as I can tell nothing is different but it doesn't make sense. My original Phantom 4 from Apple.com doesn't say NA or USA. So that's 3 different labels....

    Why do you need 3 Phantoms ? Especially in the Cleveland area. I'm struggling to find interesting areas to fly .

    I had this same question about Best Buy P4's. I'm sure they are he same but I found it curious that one box would day "YouTube | Live Verified" and another would not.

    Mine is NA and no you tube verified. One of the early ones from the Apple Store pickup glitch.

    i believe they just print different deals on different boxes ...
    i.e. when i bought my ipad mini 2 there was two different boxes one said " ipad mini 2+wifi" the other said "ipad mini 2" and they were both the same even the same price, even though one says wifi the other has the same wifi capability, i believe this is just purely for marketing reasons

    It would be interesting to see if there is a range difference between the NA and the USA versions. That might help explain Gadget Guys meltdown

    That's interesting.. There's a USA and a NA version. To add to this, there's also a CA version (For Canada I guess). I'm in Canada and purchased the P4 from Best Buy Canada. My box says "Phantom 4 (CA)"

    So, I can understand USA and CA, but why NA? (Since both countries are in North America). Strange.

    It's just packaging guys, and possibly the range of them being made, I'd guess the YouTube ones are later versions?

    My guess would be for certain things just to keep track of where its going?

    Hopefully mine will be the P4W (world edition!) Lol

    From the DJI Forum ( for what its worth):

    Dear all, Phantom 4 (US) and Phantom 4 (NA) are both genuine DJI phantoms. We first had NA and changed it into US later. They don't have difference other than the name on package.

    Wild guess here: NA = English and Spanish manual. US = English only. CA = English and French.

    Support your local dealer who can support you in the future. Best buys and the like won't give any after sales service.

    Unrelated but why didn't you just get two at the same store?
