    Hey everyone, new here to the forum. So here it is plain and simple, i found the exact model quad I am ready to settle on(p3 adv)

    now my problem is pulling the trigger on it. I have wanted a quad for a long time and with the tax refund coming in i was like "LET'S DO THIS". No i find myself saying all the other things i could by with it.

    Make me buy it guys.

    I may not be well liked for saying this, but if you're spending the tax money on a drone, don't buy it. You're right, there are many other things to buy with that money.

    Just purchased my Inspire Pro Black version from B& H....they dropped the price by $300 ($3899) last week (now back up to original discounted price $4199) and they where the only one who discounted it an extra $300 for some reason.

    Now I'm just waiting for Australian Customs to clear it before it's in my hot little hands!!

    I also got a Phantom 3 Pro with I love just as much and find it a lot easier to transport.

    You are going to love flying it, so enjoy your tax refund.

    It was the pre Passover sale. Should be a good sale from them when they get up and running next week.
    This hobby is addictive. I was shopping for a nice hard case and found a Mustang rolling case with a used P3A in it and accessories. Got it this afternoon. Trying to figure out what the biomaterial is on the blades is. Hope it was a BIG bug. Had some nice video on the card.

    Pull the trigger ! And while your at it, go the extra inch for the Pro.. Better future proofing so You'll have longer to save for the inspire

    I don't necessarily see anything wrong with spending your tax refund on a drone. It's 110% a non-necessity, of course, but if you have the financial flexibility, go for it. What are the other things you're considering spending the money on? That's the real question.

    I was in your same boat. It took me several weeks to pull the trigger on my P3A (and I even justified it to myself by thinking about my tax refund that I knew would be coming). No regrets at all! They're a whole lot of fun.
