Are P3P's backordered from all dealers or is it hit and miss

    Just ordered a P3P package deal on the 23rd from UAVDirect.com - I'll update you on speed and delivery. Shows back odered on status. But I wonder if they just send the UAS when the case and batt is not in stock.

    Could have gone bhpv but wanted to give the smaller drone dealers some biz.

    A number of shops such as the coptershop have the P3P available in stock. The problem is if you're looking for a combo deal which includes a discounted battery(s) and or case. In which case you need to shop at DroneFly.com which is the only one I found not price gouging the battery. I ordered the P3P Pro Combo with DJI Backpack and Extra battery. And in addition it let me check off one additional battery at $100 promo price. So yeah if you want just the P3P you can get it now. If you want a combo deal and discounted batteries you will have to wait at least a couple of weeks for more shipments to come in.

    I suspected that was the case - for the case deal. Thanks for the info.

    UPS delivered the Phantom on 7/3 so less than ten days. And that answers the question, that the bundles ship one part at a time. At least from UAVdirect. No indication on the battery or case but it was the same deal with the $100 battery add on. BHP shipped a battery same day that I ordered it on 7/3.

    Just got word that my shop received about 30 batteries from DJI. So those back orders are being shipped. Go Professional case bundles are about a week out. This is UAVdirect from Texas.

    Oh Sorry didn't reply. I got my P3P as advertised in about two weeks from Back Order. Case and Batteries took a bit longer. I went with an Authorized dealer just for the personal customer support.
