    Thanks. They have an "Everything you need" bundle used, like new as well. I'm sure both are mistakes/scams but I gave the "ultimate" a shot anyway.

    It doesn't add up. Phone number on the Amazon profile leads to a fax number of a place that sells pole barns. The name of the seller does appear to live in Colorado though which matches the location of the pole barn place, based on some quick searching. I'm betting either a price mistake, profile was hacked, or it's just the Phantom without camera/gimbal/something else expensive.

    We shall see.

    I ordered the p3a "everything you need" bundle on Friday. 3 batteries, backpack, 3 cradle charger, 2 sd cards etc... Have yet to receive it but feel I can't go wrong even if a few things are missing and the quad isn't in like new condition. Can't wait to see!

    I also ordered the p3a bundle, I called Amazon ahead of time and expressed my concerns and made them put notes on my account about it. They assured me I would get a refund if it wasn't what it should be

    Sure did. I don't have high hopes but Amazon will make it right if necessary.

    Did they ask you to pay them direct instead of paying through Amazon?

    No. This was a typical Amazon transaction paid through Amazon

    And now when you click on that link it says product unavailable. Shop from Amazon quite frequently and there's a difference between something being shipped from Amazon and being shipped from a third party. The return and refund policies are also different just so you're aware.

    Is the seller new? Have any ratings? If no ratings, I'd be suspicious.

    I have a lot of trust in Amazon myself, but you can't just say "It's Amazon everything will be fine". You still need to use common sense.
