    I have seen these two different variations of a phantom 3 professional box, are they both real?

    The P3 box has one of those pics on the top and the other on the bottom.

    I know firsthand the Chinese market box has the picture of the Phantom on an angle... like the bottom photo. My Phantom box isn't within my reach at the moment but I'm pretty sure it's like the top one.

    I was sent a Chinese market phantom from a buyer on Amazon and immediately returned it and got one from an authorized dealer. (BH)

    I just watched an U boxing video, it is that one image is on the front and back, I don't have a phantom 3 yet so I was just making sure the different pictures didn't alter what was inside!

    Thats worrying. The picture on my box is like the one on the bottom - angled ! :eek::eek:


    *edit* Now Ive sobered up and reread this thread, Ive looked at the box properly and I have both images on the box. :oops: :)

    If you got it from an authorized dealer and all the text on the box front is in english, you should be good.

    This is my box, I purchased direct from DJI. It has one pic straight on and the other side is at an angle.
