    Simple question:
    Is amazon an authorized dealer for DJI, in other words, do I get the DJI warranty?

    No, and no. Vendors sell through Amazon.

    I want to buy the Phantom 3 Standard and it is shipped and sold by amazon. It does not say "by DJI". No warranty then? If I had a warranty would you guys even use it for drone malfunctions, aren't there better places to fix your drone.

    I bought a P3P from Amazon UK, after checking with DJI that it would be covered for warranty. They confirmed that as long as I had a receipt, it would be covered.

    Amazon is not on DJI's authorized dealer list. DJI will honor their warranty if you buy a new Phantom from Amazon though.

    I bought a DVD player from amazon, it was almost 2 years old and went wrong.
    (2 year warranty in EU on goods) I contacted amazon, they sent me a postage slip by email an as soon as I handed it in to postal system I had full refund. Cant say better than that.

    There are no authorized dealers. Check DJI's website (or any place else). You won't find any type of list at this time.

    You must be an authorized DJI dealer in order to buy Phantoms in bulk directly from DJI. DJI has a dealer signup form here.

    I stand corrected... it's the map as usual. It won't display at all for me using IE on Windows 7. However, I just tried on Chrome and Windows 10 and it worked fine. Thanks... I'll need this for my "appointment" tomorrow.
