    Anyone checked out the DJI offerings on https://jet.com ??? What do you think of the pricing. I am having trouble loading the site maybe you guys have better luck.

    The price listed for the P3P was about $200 less than I have ever paid.

    I have nothing for sale on this site. Anyone use or belong to this site?

    Jet.com is not an authorized DJI dealer. I wouldn't chance it.

    If I could get the page to load I would like to see what company is offering the sale. They are attempting to be a better deal than Amazon and subsidizing their prices for the launch.

    DJI does not allow Phantoms to be sold at a lower price. If that's happening, you should beware and shop elsewhere.

    Anyone registering a website by proxy and hiding ownership, is not looking to be known for good customer service. More than likely they're offshore and you're not going to get a refund or product.

    Buyer beware!

    Non sense.. Jet.com just launched and should be trusted as much as Amazon... i just bought an iPad mini off it.... The launch off this site has been anticipated for weeks... Its all over tech news/financial sites...

    The price I saw was $1029.00 for a P3P 4K. I think the site is offering a discount while the retailer sells at MSRP.

    Won't need it.. Thanks to the investors pouring millions of dollars into this site... Time to remove those tin foil hats.. Not everybody in this world is after people to scam them.. A simple search on google should help.....

    It does seem to be a legit site launch with some serious cash injected however I remember the Mp4 player and SD Card scams from ebay back in the day by foreign sellers. I'm having trouble loading the site to see which retailer is teamed up with jet.com . Is it DJI directly?

    There is only one reason to use a proxy registration, to hide who you are. Whether it's legit or not, hiding the identity of the owner smells fishy.

    Adorama is my trusted vendor for drone purchases. I've spent almost $10K with them and NO complaints.

    Can't wait for DJI to sue them for selling outside of MAP pricing

    Thank for the info ViperNuke. I'm having problems loading the page for some reason. If I can get P3P's at that price ya'll better hurry up before I get at them.
