    Ive been told here in england that the package for the phantom 3 and a spare battery has been discontinued? Can anyone else shed some light on this, has anyone bought this combo package and recieved it yet? I cant believe within 6 weeks of launcing a product dji have discontinued this deal!!

    Hi Elheapo, I can confirm this combo was removed by DJI around a week ago.

    Not sure why, but I assume another combo will eventually be available perhaps with battery and backpack.

    I had been watching the site, it had to have been removed the day before I purchased because I kept looking and couldn't find it. I just bought a second battery as an accessory.

    I'm betting it will come back but can't say when. In the mean time an extra batter will cost $50 more then the combo deal. I'd highly recommend at least two batteries with the purchase of the P3.

    That is a bit naughty, so now it costs an extra £45 ontop of the massively higher price than what you would have to pay for the P3's in the EU and America.
