    I noticed this morning that Amazon has a bundle, Phantom 3 Professional and a spare battery for $1,299. I got one last week when the price was $1,338 and the stuff is all genuine. It says they won't be in stock until Oct. 31st. I mean, if you were going to get one anyway, this may save you a few dollars.

    It says "Sold by CopterShop and Fulfilled by Amazon". I did receive a nice email from CopterShop willing to help with any problems.

    Here's a link to that deal if anyone is interested. CopterShop is definitely an authorized DJI dealer. I'm not sure how they are able to sell below MAP though.

    That's odd. The deal by CopterShop is gone too.

    I think Amazon dislikes 'sold out' deals and finds other vendors to honor them.

    Ehhh... Phantom 3 has been out for how many months?

    And it is beginning of winter.

    And I'm willing to bet there is going to be at least some sort of small - but notable - update to P3 "soon."

    Unless someone really wants to open it up under the Christmas tree, sales are slow during the winter. If you don't live pretty far South where the weather is good, it makes a lot of sense to want just a little longer to see what DJI will come up with for Christmas or Spring.

    I thought it was illegal for a manufacture to control selling prices?
