    Is this for the camera only? How is the seller feedback?

    I am tempted to buy one, it is covered by purchase protection so why not? Supposedly the Phantom 4 has everything and and extra battery!

    "Seller" has no feedback for selling anything and now is selling multiple P4s for giveaway prices and free international shipping
    Hmmmm .... I can't see anything suspicious there.

    It's a classic hijacked ebay account scam
    You need to tune up your scam radar.

    How could I get scammed though, it is covered by PayPal buyer protection.

    What if they send you a box filled with sand or something else that weights the same as a p4? They'll win the paypal dispute because they have a tracking number that shows the proper weight. I lost a paypal claim when I got sent a used item instead of a new one. They gave the tracking number and paypal closed the dispute in their favor. I never count on paypal's protection, who they side with is completely random sometimes.

    I still think it's worth a try, but use an Amex card if you have one. They are the only credit card company that seems to always side with the customer unless the business can disprove your claim. I've gotten refunds through Amex that I'd never have gotten through paypal or any other credit card for that matter. Barclay, citi, and chase to a lesser extent, seem to side with the businesses.

    PayPal has always backed me up 100% and whenever I buy something of large value I film the unboxing for proof in case I need it......and it probably doesn't hurt that I have a solid eBay account.....
