    Hi All

    I'm new to the drone market but have been doing extensive research for the past few days and made the P3 as my first choice for drone, so bear with me :)

    Looking at all the various posts, it seems people won't receive the P3 for another few weeks or so which is leading me to question the purchase I made. The link is here: http://www.eglobaldigitalcameras.co...-kit-with-one-extra-battery-djip3proset1.html

    I spoke to an online sales rep and he advised the advance was not in stock as that was my initial model, so he suggested the pro. He said there were two in stock with the additional battery. So I placed my order. Research about the company seemed to yield very positive feedback and I also paid with PayPal so not worried about that. Just find it strange they seem to have two in stock and everywhere else appear as to not have any. Should I prepare to be disappointed?

    I live in Australia btw.

    u most likely purchased a pre order slot, some dealers had the number of pre order slots as the inventory counter...

    Hmm seems likely and will be disappointed if so but apparently he went to check actual stock and advised they P3 has been assigned to my order. I'll try to get further clarification today.

    At least they don't have far to deliver the P3 to Eglobal.
    Shenzen to Hong Kong is right next door.
    I've bought from them before with no worries.

    Yeah they could have received some but two sounds more like demo units.

    Based on the fact that DJI are not shipping units with extra batteries until mid May CS-JL is either full of BS or they are pre production units....... Wouldn't touch them with a barge pole

    Will it's confirmed, not demo unit and in stock. Being shipped today should receive in a few days. If anyone wants it before others, there is still one more in stock. Might be gone by the time you check today though.

    Or Achandad is purely on here to promote misinformation and get eager people to order units that don't exist from a company he may well have connections with.... My apologies if that's not the case but I'm sure people will make up their own mind.

    Wow someone is paranoid. First all I said there's one left so more then likely it's already sold. Next I couldn't care less where anyone buys it from. I'm just here to help people as I can see there's a few like me who want it ASAP. They also have PayPal so you can easily get a refund. Think you got some trust issues mate lol.

    Anyway here's my comms from today for anyone interested.

    P
    Paranoid...probably, particularly when your dealer seems to be the only one globally that has stock of the P3 and extra battery.

    As I said I apologise if you are genuine, but if you have delivery of a P3 with extra battery in the next few days I will become religious...... As it will be a miracle...;)

    If it does turn up please feel free to post pictures so I can have a big fat slice of humble pie.

    Sweet, hopefully mine will be here before the weekend. Goes to show how much crap you hear on these forums about the P3P with extra battery being delayed, P3A delayed etc etc
