    Hello everyone!

    Just won a p3pro off evilbay, hope to receive it this week.

    I live up in Inverness and know zilch about quadcopters so expect a load of noob questions on the forum :)

    You live in a beautiful part of the world so when you get your wings let's see what you can make of Urquart. And welcome too.

    Well.. Bad news! Turns out I have been ripped off by a scum bag!
    I haven't received the drone, he won't return my calls or emails (this coming from someone who contacted me 8 times during negotiations prior to the purchase). I have logged a case with PayPal.. Watch this space..

    Did you buy one of those $150 "brand new in the box, Phantom 3 Professionals" with free shipping by any chance? :)

    Seriously, sorry to hear that. There's been a few stories of bad deals on ebay lately

    No sir, it looked legit... The guy said all the right things and the price (although cheap (£600)) was believable :/

    The guy has now escalated the claim through PayPal after my initial report of non-receipt.... If he can't provide prof of postage, then PayPal rules in my favour.

    What a crap start to my flying career!

    Sucks man! Hopefully they rule in your favor... Get your money back and buy from someone else! It's worth it.
