    Now, if I only I could get hold of the one that was supposed to be bundled with my P3 & the other one I ordered from DJI directly over 4 weeks ago.....

    Never. Order. From. DJI.

    Every battery I've ordered has been here within 2 days.

    I ordered all my stuff directly from DJI. Got my P3P (and the extra battery), and I got my two extra batteries (I now have four batteries)

    Yep, I'm learning that to my cost now!

    This one from Copter Shop in New York took about 10 days to arrive, which is perfectly reasonable.

    So you don't want to buy mine for £600 + postage?

    This advice is Golden. Don't order from DJI. Ever. I sent my defective inspire back three weeks ago tomorrow and still no refund. all I get from support in LA is contact onlines sales. Online sales tell me to contact Support in LA. I'm stuck in a loop.

    My advice...Amazon.

    My 1st 2 came from DJI, one with the bird and the bundled one soon after. The last two from Advenxtur and they were also fast, so I am not complaining.

    I ordered My P2V+ and P3P/Battery bundle from DJI. I've had good experiences in both cases. Even so, in the future I will probably order from a dealer for two reasons. First, I'd like to support companies that support the community. Second, to protect myself. Eventually my luck will run out and I'll need service. There are some great stories here and elsewhere about dealers who are very helpful and provide timely support.

    My bundle battery arrived Saturday. Now I have three! Oh, the decadence!

    And Last night I had an email from DJI to say my fourth pack has shipped. I only have 3 slots in my hardshell backpack (with an option to carry one mounted into the P3).

    I'll be giving pack 1 a bit of a rest. After the last month, it's earned it :)

    I originally ordered my P3 direct from DJI, and after learning they don't ship orders until after 20 days after the order is processed, I canceled. If I'm spending this kind of money, I want this thing now, not a month from now. I ordered thru Amazon which went to the CopterShop, and I had my P3 in two days. I like the Phantom 3, really, really like it, but DJI as a company I despise based on my own experience, as well as every other negative opinion and account I've read about them. How the hell do they even stay in business...

    Placed order with DJI for P3P+Battery and everything was shipped quickly. Battery came just a couple of weeks after Phantom did.

    Wow, those are long wait times. I ordered from B&H at 4 pm Thursday and my doorbell rang at 8:30 am the next morning. That is very consistent for B&H,which is why I buy all my camera equipment from them.
