    Rumors are out there about a new improved Phantom to hit the market soon. Perhaps in response to Blade's Phantom clone that's due out in a week or so.

    Anyone heard anything?

    Think the reference is probably in respect of the new Phantom Visiom. (5.8Ghtz transmitter, 2.4 Ghtz for supplied Camera)

    No, it came from a really knowledgeable customer (I work part-time in a hobby shop) who is deep in the aerial filming business.

    I have absolutely no doubt that DJI will eventually be releasing a Phantom that's more worthy of lifting it's Zenmuse H3.
    - one with external USB, built in bluetooth perhaps,.and larger battery compartment.
    or heck, maybe even a ready to fly larger quad.

    But who knows when

    Where did you figure out the Blade unit was due in a week or so. There web site says Fall, the places that take pre-orders are saying October 25.

    Who is selling them in a week?

    The only thing that might change is the NAZA M V2 could be in it with the new PMU V2 for future use of the H3-2D gimbal.
