    I don't think it'll be from Amazon directly? :geek: Looks like that pricing and "release date" is from Luckitron.

    Amazon is a seller as well, but out of stock. Everything looks like they're on backorder!

    When the P2v were having problems, Amazon stopped selling them ..... citing possible issues with their stock on their site.
    Amazon took back all 3 of my P2Vs, paid the shipping and provided full refunds, so I though I would wait until they had the plus.

    But after everyone else had them for 2 weeks and still non at Amazon, I decided to look at the Amazon retailers.
    I was also starting to see a lot of concerns on the forums with the Plus/3.XX firmware.
    I asked MSRP about the many reported issues with the Plus they said "the first shipment had problems that have been fixed in the next shipment", and then they got stock about that time ...and promptly raised their price to around $1500, so I just took their statement with a grain of salt. ;)
    But I was reminded of the statement Amazon put on their site and gave it some weight in my decision on who I would buy from (just in case) thinking that possibly there was some truth to the MSRP statement, and that Amazon might just be holding off until the "teething issues) were solved. :?: :?:

    After making sure DDM was a solid/reputable seller, I then decided to go with DDM (and used the 5% off "SQUIRREL" code so delivered was $1300.55 with the second battery).
    I had annoying intermittent issues with it so I sent it back.
    Not as good as Amazon, I had to pay $22 to send it back, but DDM gave me a full refund.

    Now I'm just waiting to see how the summer will go with respect to more bannings, and to see if DJI will give us back Ch7 camera tilt, and possibly a better camera.
    I'd be willing to pay an additional amount commensurate with the quality, if offered as an option.

    Why not order direct from DJI? I ordered mine on a Friday mid day and had it tuesday at noon. From China to Florida in 4 days!

    This!
    I ordered my P2V+ directly from DJI website. It said to allow 15 days for shipment.
    I figured that was cool, since I had to go to the UK for a week, and I'd receive my package a week after I got back home.
    Lo and behold, DHL delivered it in 6 days....from China. Good thing I have good neighbors.
