    I just got two batteries on Amazon and they will be here June 10-15th. I cancelled my DJI order because of the "15 working days after payment" it will be shipped BS. Why wait?
    It said they had 10 left and it was on 17 when I started so you better hurry. It was through Rotorlogic on Amazon.

    I am at 17 days and counting -- no word from DJI-- yet I am seeing batteries all over the internet available in 4 to 10 days. How can that be?? There is a snake in the woodpile somewhere.:eek:
    And the battery manufacturing process should surely be able to outpace the P3 manufacturing process. Probably a cell supply problem in the battery manufacture. the cell manufactures probably supply all the other lipo battery companies.

    I've only seen a few people selling them. They seem to be large DJI dealers too -- who all probably ordered well before you placed your order.

    I ordered one from a different supplier on Amazon yesterday - he only had 10 and was expensive - it was $200 if you included 2-day shipping. I also ordered one yesterday from All e RC (no price premium and only $6 extra to ship 2-day). Both show that they will be delivered tomorrow. Still waiting on the one I ordered with the P3P...

    I did it through the chat feature which will pop up when you open up the product tab. I gave them my order number and they said I would be refunded in 2-3 days.

    I'm debating on keeping my dji order. 3 batteries seems so much cooler than 2!

    I ordered a battery today from https://www.rcdepothobbies.com at 5:49 PM Pacific, they close at 6:00 PM. I got shipping information at 7:31 PM. Pretty impressive. I know it won't go out until tomorrow, but just good business.

    I ordered on CopterShop on Tuesday (now sold out), and will get it Monday. I'm glad I waited to order until stock came in. DJI can be a bit slow.
