    I spotted this and thought I would add it here.
    Very.co.uk have 20% off your first CREDIT order until 31st July.
    YOU HAVE TO ENTER THE CODE KFTE3 AT CHECKOUT.
    I didn't know they sold drones and accessories, but they seem to have the full range in stock from the standard through to the P4.
    P3pro seems a good deal at £879 before discount which after discount = £703.20
    Advanced at £699 becomes £559.20.
    Postage is only a few £s and delivery is only a couple of days.
    Another bonus is that you can get 12mths interest free credit as well.
    They also sell batteries and surprisingly camera/gimbals.
    Well worth look for anyone considering a new drone.
    Even the P4 works out at only £904.

    Just tested and the Discount is only available if you do apply for a credit account, but thanks for the heads-up:)

    Not sure why you wouldn't take advantage of 3mth or 12mths interest free credit.
    Very.co.uk seem to be a type of catalogue company so some form of credit is a given.
    Normally you would expect the price to be hiked up by a catalogue Co, but Very's price on drones seems to be RRP or better.

    P3 batteries work out at £100 each so may be worthwhile opening an account just to buy a couple of batteries. Better than prices on ebay or amazon and no fears about getting stiched with a fake copy.

    Just had a look and can see the P3pro at £675 which is a great price.
    P3A is £650 so not so great.
    can't see where you got £605 from though...

    give them a call and let them know what you want and they will come up with a good deal, I did and got my p3p and asked for 2 more batteries, (£85) each and got the lot delivered in 3 days with no import or tax to pay, they pay that for you in the price

    It's not a Pro.

    Colin, if you've bought that thinking you've got a good deal on a Pro you will be very dissapointed.
    The 4K is more like the Standard, but with a better camera. I think the controller is better quality but it's still wifi not lightbridge so range is poor.

    SLR Hut's price for the pro at £675 is awesome though.
    It's only £25 more than what they are charging for the Advanced, which doesn't make much sense to me.

    Wish I'd seen this thread before I ordered a p3a from dronesforless.co.uk last week.

    DronesForLess look very good too. I'm sure you got a good deal.
    Their Pros are only £620 and the Advanced are £545.
    I'm amazed how low the Phantom 3 can be bought for now, especially the Pro version.

    dronesforless claim to be based in the UK but the p3a I ordered is now on 'back order'. The address on their website takes you to a parcel shop, and a message on Facebook told me that their office hours are 4pm - 6pm. Very hard to get hold of. All a bit dodgy.

    Russ, i would do some research on Simply Electronics. I've seen some bad reviews about them.
    They are another company that seems to sell items they don't have in stock. And I assume it is all grey import stock.
    I think they are based in Hong Kong and their customer sevice makes DJI's look top notch.
    There seems to be lots of people struggling to get refunds etc

    Currently struggling to get hold of drones for less to cancel my order.
    Nobody answering their phone number, form on their website went into a black hole.
    I've had contact on their facebook page but the person keeps telling me to contact customer support. Who are unreachable. I would avoid them.

    Thought it sounded too good but then nearly all of
    the Internet companies seem questionable really not sure which way to go pricing differences seem so huge
