    Hello people,
    I am new here and stumbled across this great forum for the phantom,
    Anyway,
    I am new to all of this and I am looking to buy my first phantom 3 standard,
    And was looking for some advice from people who might know,
    I have seen a P3S on slrhut for £409
    And the 4K one for £565 and I was wondering if this site is genuine and they are genuine phantom 3 models,
    I spoke to a guy earlier called James and he assured me they are cheap as there is no profit margin in these,
    Has anyone purchased from slrhut before ?
    Or shall I keep away ?
    Thanks
    Liam

    It's always good to buy from a DJI Dealer for warranty support. If you don't buy from a DJI Dealer DJI may not honor the warranty. You can find authorized dealers here: Where to Buy | DJI

    Suggest you google them and look at some of the reviews....very mixed! Some say avoid like the plague, poor customer service/wrong item sent/out of stock - delay in refund etc. Others say they got a great deal.
    They're certainly genuine, but they're an American company with a London address where they hold some stock.

    DJI should still honor your warranty if you buy new from other sellers. I haven't seen any cases where warranty work was denied solely due to the place the Phantom was purchased.

    True, I haven't heard of any cases either. I just read through their warranty info again, it makes mention of "Legal proof-of-purchase or receipt" but nothing about from a dealer or not. So all this grumbling going on about purchasing from non-dealers is most likely hogwash anyway.

    Thanks for the replies,
    After looking further,
    I have found a place called dronesdirect here in the uk
    They are £449 for the P3S and a free dronemax backpack,
    This company is also on the dji authorised sellers list
    As mentioned in the link above,
    They're out of stock until the 29th April
    But I'm fairly sure that this is the deal I will be going for,
    Any thoughts
    Thanks.

    Have you thought about looking at Amazon deals? There's plenty of drones from amazon official sellers for under £450! I got a lightly used phantom 3 from amazon for £320!
