    Yes, there is virtually no stock anywhere in the US right now.

    That's insane! Order them direct from DJI website, 10 day wait at most then it is shipped out. I live in Australia & ordered one a week ago to replace the one that crashed and it's on the way now.

    I clicked the link you posted (no idea why, since I have a V+) about 2 hours ago, and as you said, I can verify that it said in stock at that point-in-time. I think they owe you a commission for likely selling out their remaining stock! :)

    Also, on eBay, if a dealer temporarily has little or no stock, they will set a price that is outrageous so they can hold the item in the store. This happens a lot with another hobby I have (especially with Chinese merchants but with others, too). They will ask 10x the going price for the item and the next week it will be down to where it was previously.

    Both Vision+ models (with & without the extra battery) are now showing in stock @ $1369 & $1299 respectively.

    I absolutely LOVE B&H. So far everything I've bought (originally a P2V, then returned ~14 days later for a P2V+), accessories, batteries, HPRC case, etc. has been from them.

    Once I recoup the investment for the P2V+ I'll probably start looking for a used P2 from them. I'd like to eventually have one bird with a Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal and GoPro specifically for video, and focus on using the P2V+ strictly for photography. That should give the best of both worlds for use. (Well, until the business need for something more high end around $10K kicks in... but that's going to be a while!)

    I ordered mine from B&H on Friday and it will be here tomorrow. I added an extra battery and didn't know about the free battery bundle until I read this thread. I just called B&H and explained my mistake and they were able to do a "Virtual Return" that will basically refund me the difference. What awesome customer service!

    FYI, they are now out of stock on the Vision+ and the bundle but they said that they don't bill your card until it ships (for US orders) and placing an order today gets you on the list on a first come first serve basis.
