    retailers have to order from DJI, so either you order from a retailer and wait for them to receive the bird from DJI then ship to you, or you order from DJI and wait for DJI to ship to you.

    Can I ask, DJI always shipping from China? What about EU import tax?

    The major retailers might well get their large delivery a day or two before individuals so there won't be much in it.
    It's clear they are selling so many the supply is going to be tight for a while.
    The dealers might get rationed to some extent.

    I have ordered two phantoms directly from DJI. For both occassions, DJI covered the import taxes to Europe. Ie, i needed to pay only for shipping

    I think for speed you can't beat Amazon. I ordered my P2V, P2V+, and P3P all from B&H Photo.

    Agree. BHP and Amazon are the most reliable online shopping channels

    B&H is great if you're from California or a State where they don't have a brick and mortar store. Save on the sale tax!!

    Ordered mine straight from DJI because I wanted to make sure I received the updated motors and one that had not been returned to a store. Received mine in four days from the time I ordered.

    Amazon. Same day delivery in the Bay Area. Also if you have a problem Amazon doesn't give you a hassle with returns.

    Dji customer support is terrible. I have a P3 coming in the mail from them. If the arrival date is correct it will arrive 9 days after I placed the order.

    I tried contacting them about shipping 2 days after I placed the order. After 3 emails I received a reply which told me to check my tracking number...which they never gave me to begin with.Today I finally received a tracking number....I was curious so I checked out DJI on the BBB website and they have an F rating.

    Order from another retailer if you can and want customer support. DJI doesnt have any.
