    On Sept 12th the price will drop on DJI Phantom2 vision Plus by about 100.00 so don't buy one until then.

    I will try to make this clear as I possibly can. I went on to a dealers Web page to order a "Phantom2 Vision plus", I noticed the price was 1,268.00 with a extra battery.So I then contacted DJI company sales department.They said "no", they are 1,300+ with extra battery, well I explained that the dealer in the US has them for a lower price.Well in the meantime I contacted my dealer and he said quote " as of September 12th there will be a price drop on them", just a bit ago I went to my authorized dealers Web page and the "Phantom2 Vision plus" is back to the original price of 1,369.00 (I can't remember the exact price) so there you have it.Whether or not they change it now I don't know.It leads me to believe they are coming out with a new phantom 3. Now I'm kind of Pissed cause the price went back up, but I will wait until Sept. 12th to see.Just wanted to give you all a heads-up!!!!

    From the dealer ; "Tom,Not sure on the exact reason why on the price decrease.  DJI notified us this morning of the new pricing.  The memo says because of the large number of units sales it is able to have lower cost for production and they want to pass that on to the end user etc.", so that is what was said to me in a reply.

    I doubt that's the only story. I like the competition theory or that something new is coming up. I wonder if Vision 2 will also drop $100.00, too.

    Welp, the 12th is Friday, so we don't have too long to go. No need to continue speculating too much ;)

    Dear Philip
    Thank you for contacting DJI Store.

    We can understand your concern. However, as the pre-sales of online store, we don't have any information about the Phantom 3 at this moment and also don't know when it will lauched
    Hope you can kindly understand it.
    Apparently they are keeping it a secret!

    A new model that is cheaper and better is almost assured as my v+ came in yesterday... But with one flying session under my belt, this is so much fun I will embrace it anyway.

    Hope DJI use 6s has the new power system in this size... Lets see what DJI developed this time.

    As for the phantom 2 in my opinion its a great 350 size quadcopter, the best in that size.
    Only downside are the very expensive and not that good lipos...

    I know, but still very expensive for what it is. A Multistar High Capacity 5200mah 3S 10C in Hobbyking its less than 40$, why the DJI lipo is 129$?

    Hope they change that on the new phantom 3.

    Cool with the 6S.

    Low kV motors run at higher voltages yield more efficiency*.

    * when mated with proper props

    Price drop seems imminent.

    According to a recent Facebook post, they've replaced the metal mount of the gimbal with plastic. :?

    Fact or Myth?

    Also reported were "shiner" motors, probably different material?
