    For me, the best time was as soon as I had saved enough money.

    shortly after a new one comes out. they depreciate pretty rapidly once there's a new one out.

    The previous Phantom models usually go on sale a month or so before the next version is released. I'm thinking we won't see another price drop for the Phantom 3 until the Phantom 5 is announced.

    I went about noon but that was my lunch hour. Yours may be different. I wouldn't recommend buying one at 3 AM unless it's an online store.
