    1) Any specific sellers offering deals?
    2) What if they're not on the list of DJI authorized retailers?

    I've found a source offering a NANUK hard case, propeller sheilds, extra battery and Advanced for about $1249.
    Not sure how forum feels about listing specific sources, so asking first.

    Thanks.

    The best deals from authorized DJI dealers were the "extra battery" bundles. There may still be some available. I'd start with eBay.

    My P3P with an extra battery was $1,359.00 shipped from an authorized dealer.

    Some have commented that the list of DJI dealers is not completely current.

    Personally, I like doing business with coptershop.com and B and H photo.

    Some really prefer Amazon because of their return policy.

    There are some "unbelievable deals" floating around. Be guided by the old adage.."if it seems to goods to be true..."

    I've always totally grazed over the legalize at DJI's site. That was a wake up...

    There are many other reasons why it's not a good idea to purchase from unauthorized DJI dealers too. For example, some of them are re-selling returned and/or used Phantoms, scamming people, not providing good customer service, etc.

    So does anyone know of an authorized dealer offering a good combo package or throwing in some incentives?
