    Yeah, I figured that. They're pretty cheap right now though. I paid 699 in sep, now they're 499. I was kinda put off.

    There's a rumor going around that target has them for 349.00, but nobody has been able to substantiate it.

    Well, I've looked, and I cant find it, so it could be something somebody made up, who knows. There's a site that quit selling the standard and the 4k model, saying they were unavailable, but I think its a money issue. They probably don't make much on the sale of a standard. Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing that. I might get a back up if I could swing it.

    Cost to make a phantom? I have no idea at all. All I can say is considerably less than they sell them for. As for batteries, there are after market batteries for 111.00, 129.00, etc. But as weird as these batteries are, I don't think I'd trust anything but a dji battery, and they run 143.00 to 149.00.

    I was thinking the same.

    I've seen some battery's on eBay for. 70 pound. How do you know they are not official battery's.

    I think the ones that are say genuine dji product. Cant swear to that, but I just wouldn't buy one that didn't say it.

    I would say no. The led lights on the end, they're shaped diffretently than a real battery. And I think I've seen that ad. It says stuff like suitable for the P3. I would say this is an after market for sure.

    And I've never had any personal experience with this, but there are guys on here that claim batteries have to formatted and have firmware and all kinds of crap. I would think you could buy a new battery, charge it, and it would work. ?????? I think there's a thread about batteries and counterfeit batteries on here. You might look through the site and see if you can find it. Might tell you more than I can, which could be good, could be bad, depending on how you look at it.
