    Hey everyone, I know there are lots of places online and in the US that sell these setups but is there a dealer in Canada ? Or anyone in Canada wanting to sell one ? I'm experimenting with my second (spare) transmitter but I can't justify buying online or in the US with the 35% markup (due to our horrible dollar here in Canada)

    I hear ya P3P - we get hosed up here in Canada with not only the exchange rate, but for some reason the local shops or online Canadian stores have a huge mark-up on these Phantoms etc. and I have yet to find what you are seeking also as to range extenders (probably cheaper in the US anyway)!

    I mean - seriously - there is a Phantom 3P + extra battery combo selling up here on particular site for $1,949.00 cdn - OUCH!

    We can buy direct say, from even the DJI store the same thing for $1,495.00 Cdn (that's with the exchange from USD to Cdn dollars and free shipping). Pathetic doesn't even come close considering that huge a gap.

    I have done a lot of searching as to pricing on Phantoms and other DJI units, and it always works out to a better buy from the US (even with the added 35% exchange rate) versus what the Canadian dealers are selling for.

    It's an expensive hobby or business venture up here to say the least!
