    What?! This seems way too good to be true. The good thing is that Amazon allows for easy returns if they ship you some rip-off item. I just emailed the seller (zip electronics) the following:

    "This sounds like a crazy awesome deal. Is it too good to be true?
    What country/state are you shipping from?
    Is this item new?
    Is it actually a DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter or is it a knock off?
    How are you selling it for so cheap?"

    We'll see what they say.

    If this is legit, I will eat my prop!
    I was almost sucked in on an eBay deal that was really a hacked account. This would be the first time I have heard of an Amazon seller account getting hacked...

    They responded super quickly. Maybe it's not too good to be true? But...buy at your own risk. haha.

    Amazon doesn't completely guarantee products sold by 3 party sellers like this one and sometimes Amazon will actually issue you a warning. This guy looks like a shark basically he has no store or feedback. You need to be able to return a product in order to get an easy refund. But if he is an Amazon Prime Seller, then Amazon will cover it.
    But There's more when dealing with the "A to Z" Amazon warranty.

    I pulled the trigger for you guys...on the go pro session that they're selling.

    they have until the 27th to get it to my door. I'm not expecting much at all but I'll let you guys know about any progress.

    might certainly be true. and I kinda feel bad that I added to it. might be a whole bunch of "I'm protected, let me give it a shot."

    Well you shouldn't be charged until the item ships. Even if it is a 3rd party seller Amazon will step in and protect you. But most of these deals that I've seen just never get shipped and the order gets canceled.
