    Before I get blasted and told to use the search feature. I already did that twice, so if that's your helpful tip, move along somewhere else. Here's a novel idea, you use search feature for the - I just want to complain about everything section. *which if you think about it would be a great idea to add that category for those negative people ...just a thought.
    I have seen that they have been on the price decline in the past 7 to 10 days give or take. I've looked online and various locations there's always that one deal that may slip through the search. I am looking for an advanced model new with possibly an extra battery or just a really good price. Here in the United States, prefer not from DJI direct.
    This is a present to a friend.

    You can get one with an extra battery for $948 on Amazon. I haven't seen legit deals cheaper than that.

    Yep -- $799 is the going rate currently. That $948 includes a second battery.

    Always need friends to explore new places, not to much interested in all day ventures, I was invited to Surry this morning, I just don't want to drive 45-60min

    You can get a Phantom 3 Advanced with student discount for $717 shipped from here: all you need is a .edu email address. You are an awesome sister for getting your brother a Phantom but a word of advice, get the advanced because the standard will more than likely leave him wanting more.

    I did get about an hour flight time in today. Found a cool place in Hampton outside the 5 mile mark with plenty of space. Area not to safe from the looks of it. Sure had the signs of a dangerous place, but I survived with no issues.

    I feel for you. I grew up in Yorktown across from York High and roamed the Hampton and Newport News areas. Never liked how you go from one "town" to the next and the only thing that divides them is a sign. Live in the Midwest now and there's miles and miles between towns and you can fly about anywhere.
