    Ebay seems to be the cheapest..but i would like to buy from an authorised dealer. However there doesnt seem to be too many about, and their prices are higher.

    This ebay seller seems to be cheaper and popular....i went to send them a message to ask a question but they arent accepting messages. If i cant communicate with them, no way im going to buy something that cost a grand.

    this dji authorised dealer seems to be the best of the bunch...but the price is almost 200 pounds more!

    There are some authorized DJI dealers here who will ship to the UK:

    It looks like most charge for shipping, but the total price seems to be less than the P3P you linked above.

    Other UK dealers are Buzzflyer and Heliguy......I think you will find that all their prices are the same -(about £200 more than Tronix).
    I'm fairly certain that Heliguy are the UK authorised repair centre for DJI.

    I think you'll find that most, if not all the UK authorised dealers sell at the same price. I had mine from the only dealer in Wales "Hedcamz" http://www.hedcamz.com in Wrexham with free next day UK delivery. Carl is the owner and he is also one of the biggest GoPro dealers in the UK.

    i cant understand how the ebay seller tronix is so much cheaper than the authorised dealers. they are selling the p3 professional on their website for 929. Thats £230 cheaper. a significant amount.

    He might be buying in bulk from Ireland and taking advantage of the euro .

    Order it from RCGeeks. Great service, next day free delivery, and really nice guys. List price, but freebies now and again.

    I spent 10k with heliguy and would not go back there again. Awful customer service. I use RCgeeks who are great. Heliguy does not have service engineers on site. They send it out.
