    SAMs is selling the P3S for $550. How do they get around it? Apple does it too and typically stores like Walmart will offer gift cards to offset the price due to pricing rules. But SAMs is $150 bones off the price.

    It sucks for the small retailer like me...plus they are only guaranteeing 6 units per store.

    Maybe they are not authorized DJI dealers? I don't see any of those companies listed on DJI's website.

    I emailed DJI and they said they are authorized even though not listed on their list. I hope that email will be sufficient if I have a warranty issue.

    I work at Bestbuy, I have no idea how they are going to get atleast 5 units per store. I work at a store in a high end area of town and we have almost all the drones bestbuy offers and besides the 2 pro units we got when we started carrying the phantoms we haven't gotten any more in since then. We have a bunch of standard units however. Heck we haven't even gotten in any batteries yet for the phantoms.

    I agree,I think this will change though. I work in connected home so I sell these. Most of the ones I sell are to parents that have kids that want them. (Which I think this could cause problems for all of us). The we mostly sell is the standard due to the price,people see the price of the pro and immediately gauk at the pricing.

    It's a good deal seeing it is about 1400 at normal price but the line you have to wait in to maybe be able to get one at that price is it worth it?

    Is this at Best Buy? I'd be wary of getting the old motors, they don't seem to be selling DJI very well at Best Buy. Not sure why, they offer a nice insurance option.
