    I have one P3P, and am thinking about buying a second one. Does anyone know the best deal available now?

    Deals change daily. Check out Amazon or a Micro Center if you have one nearby.

    You can buy used on eBay for a reasonable price, but I would go to microcenter asap.

    I do have a MicroCenter not too far away. Perhaps I should call them to see if they have one in stock. I cannot tell if they do from online. I bought the better half a nice new swing sort of like a hammock, and she will chip in to get the new drone. I'm on the fence about doing this or getting more accessories such as a max distance antenna system or other accessories. Any thoughts on great accessories to add to the P3?

    I have an aluminum case, a backpack, 3 batteries, a multi-charger, some filters, a tracking, and a gimbal guard.

    I got mine from micro center for $700 about a month ago. When I called they said they didn't have it but when I gave them the sku number they found it. For some reason on there website it will show they don't carry it no more but I still see them in the stores. The sku number will be your best friend when calling them

    When I bought my P3P at the $699 price, they wouldn't even acknowledge the price over the phone, much less let me purchase it to be held for pickup. Had a friend go to the store and he had to purchase it on his card, then I refunded him (plus a gift card for his trouble).
    They must be having to keep this in-store only since they are selling it so far below MSRP.

    Just wondering if the microcenter ones are brand new, open box, or refurbished.

    Some carry both brand new and open box. You'd have to contact them or visit to find out what they have in stock.

    The brand new ones were going for $700. Depending on the store they may have open box/refurbished

    The one I bought (from the Irvine store) was new, unopened, and the B controller!

    Yep. I missed out. Bought a used one in good condition, before I saw this ad. I could return mine, because I have a 14 day period, but it makes no sense now.

    GL300B model number.
    Forum legend has it (based on FCC filings) that the A version remote controller has the highest RF output, then DJI reduced it a bit with the B version, and the latest C version (which seems to come with all P4's and some P3's) is even lower...

    Is an A controller compatible with a phantom 4?

    Keep a look out here. They still have stock in many micro centers. They will most likely run another sale
