    I got an ad from Burlington Coat Factory today and guess what was front & center... yup, a drone. I am waiting for the Hess Drone to come out for Christmas! Or the Victoria's Secret drone. :)

    Rural King, the local farmer friendly store here in the Midwest has shelves full of them. Also saw where Walmart has the Air Hogs Millennium Falcon back in stock.

    I was in Dick's Sporting goods here in Northern VA and saw a pile of early Black Friday quad copters on sale. The I went to a clothing store next door and saw more quad copters. None were more than toys compared to a Phantom, but many looked to be of a size needing registration (whenever the FAA posts the mandate).

    The nicest @dji store display I have seen was in a local Staples.
    It has a Phantom 3 Professional, nicely lit from below in a plexiglass case, with the Phantom 3 radio controller hooked up outside the box. I never tried the radio to see what it does, as I only just walked past it and thought, wow, that's eye catching. I was there that day, on my way, to buy another intelligent flight battery.

    Here in the capital city, I have seen the Phantom 3 on sale at:
    Apple, Great Hobbies, McBain Camera, Vistek Photography, Staples, Best Buy, and a couple of other retail outlets that don't come to mind presently. We even had a new Drone Store open last week in West Edmonton Mall. www.droneology.ca
    It's a hot commodity, that I hope some don't get stuck, holding the bag with.

    We have a stock pile at Best Buy for this Friday. I think the manifest said 50 Professional models. I had no idea they were going to be that big of a sale on Friday. Also when you purchase a drone from the stores on your receipt it prints a website for a check list and the FAA rules. I just noticed that on the receipt I printed for a customer yesterday.
