    Sorry, but I’ll wait until you can process it thru the credit card. Hopefully it won’t take too long.



    What do guys think? I'm thinking "Fraud". I would never transfer money to anyone outside of Ebay or Credit Card. Be careful out there.

    I have the P3 on pre-order but wanted another P2V3 to kick around while I wait.

    So... You give up any possibly of being able to dispute the charges and get your money back if something goes wrong. Also, I've never seen a company that has a credit card account that can't process a card after a few hours or a day over an issue. Run, run very fast and far away from this company!

    Write them back and tell them why you're cancelling.

    Do waste your money... If you search the Internet you will find to many names they are listed as. RED FLAG here.

    If it seems too good to be true then it probably is. Of course I never heard back from them. Just wanted to remind everyone that the Internet is full of scams.

    Can't wait to get the new P3. I have 3 pre-ordered. I miss flying especially now that the weather is nice. I was just a little anxious as I have all the extra parts for the P2V2+ vers.3.0.
    Now I think I will just sell off the 3 extra batteries, chargers, extra props and a lot of other stuff I never even opened yet. I only flew the P2V2+ about 10 times before she flew the coop, but I'm hooked nevertheless.

    The blank stare always cracks me up, I'm stealing it for other places :)

    Just because I'm not paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after me
