    As they say... If it's too good to be true...I wouldn't bother with it

    eBay has covered it with their money back guarantee so I'll get my money back if I need to file with them. I'll either get nothing, a bootlegged phantom, an empty shell, box or a real phantom. I looking forward to finding out and reply back here!

    This is what happens when I sit around the house. Going out to fly my P2 right now! :D

    Update: I just got a message from eBay saying the listing was removed. They said I still should get my order. Very peculiar.

    It looks like there were 10 of them... All sold out by the time I clicked on the link above :( :(

    eBay said they withdrew the auction so I doubt all 10 were sold. Those who bought (me included) may end up asking for a charge-back. We'll see. Would be cool if one showed up at the door, though.

    Alas - eBay refunded my money. No cheap Phantom for me!

    Had to be worth a shot. Otherwise you would never have known- and would have wondered for ever ;)

    It's risky though, there's no way they could post a regular Phantom out for that so what if you received some sort of fake, like a model of one :eek:
    It would be a whole lot of grief returning it (you pay) and they would have a free loan for weeks at your expense.

    Things like this crop up all the time and I suspect some of the sellers simply need temporary funds quickly.
    They are aware it will be taken back in days.
