    Hi!
    Im visitint seattle this next week.

    I was hopeing that i could buy a DJI Phantom 1 there, leaving for sweden after a few days, so some where downtown or pretty nearby would be good, realy cant find anyhing on the web, and DJI is not responding to mail/facebook/twitter...

    Would be more than happy for any idea!

    Kind regards, soon-to-be-flying-Per ;-)

    I can't think of any of the local hobby stores that carry the Phantom here in the Seattle area (and there isn't an RC Hobby store in Seattle proper - they are all in the suburbs).

    Here is a list of some you could call when you get in town:

    http://galaxyhobby.com/
    They are in Lynnwood, about 10 miles north of downtown Seattle.

    http://www.hobbytown.com/Redmond-WA/
    About 15 miles east across Lake Washington near the Microsoft campus.

    I'd suggest you call both stores and see if they carry the Phantom or can refer you to a local vendor.

    The other stores close to downtown are RC Hobby stores, (franchise chain) and I know they don't carry the Phantom, just the Blade 350QX.

    If you plan on being in Seattle a few days and have an address you could ship to, I'd suggest either Red Rocket Hobbies in southern Oregon:

    http://www.redrockethobbies.com/

    or Amazon.com - both have fast shipping and could probably get a Phantom to you overnight.

    Good Luck and enjoy our city. We're in the mid 50's today but a storm is moving in and we are expecting possible lowland snow and temps just above 0 C the next few days.
