    So the pricing is as follows $1259 €1399 or £1159

    If you are in the UK try buy it in Euros and you'll save €200

    Hmm Isn't it crap that it's so much more to buy in GB Pounds than Euros - we're just suckers!

    Has anyone in the UK ever bought from DJI direct? If so, what happened as far as duty & VAT were concerned?

    I'm in Portugal and our imports get held up in Customs for up to three months and then we get hit with an average 30% in 'extras'. There is duty to pay, not just on the product but also on the packaging and postage. When they have calculated that little lot they add on a further 23% of that total as VAT. Even the inflated £GBP price and postage from the UK can work out cheaper and from experience it is certainly quicker.

    I hope there's no problems ordering directly from DJI as I've just done exactly that!
    A P3 Advanced with extra battery is now on order. Only a £379 upgrade as I sold my P2V+ for £600 I know I could have saved by getting it in Euros but I just wanted it ordered and now I can forget about it until it arrives.
