Still in stock @ Newegg.

The 3 year accidental damage from drops and spills warranty is a no-brainer at only $70. It gives you the option of purchasing this in the cart. This drone is NOT easily repairable and is very expensive to replace in the event of gimbal, camera, mainboard, or water damage.

If interested in the Standard this is a better deal

as it nets you an extra battery and hard case for $99 more

===========================================

Before buying a P3 or Inspire make sure you understand the upcoming DJI GEO system and that you are comfortable with the restrictions and personal information one will have to share with DJI in order to fly in various locations:

Keep in mind that drones over 250 grams (~9oz) have to be registered in 2016.

===========================================

So I bought my Phantom 3 Standard during Black Friday for $499 from Adorama. I later noticed that they released a $599 deal (about a week ago) which also included a battery ($149 value) and DJI case ($149) value. I called their customer service and had them ship out the extra accessories and charge me the difference of $99.

If you're in the same situation and you want to reproduce this deal you have to be firm about it but it can get done. You must reference the $599 deal on the bundle, here: http://www.adorama.com/DJIPH3SC.html

It is currently $699, but you can tell them you saw it for $599 on 1/2/16. If you need help I suggest calling Jason at ext 4818. He helped me although he didn't sound too reassuring. I received everything correctly.

Yeah, and that's why I didn't buy a drone for my son this Xmas.
But there's no registration on AR-15's so that's what he got instead..he had a big smile.

The 4k should be the pro 3
or does the standard come with the 4K camera?
That's a steal if it's the pro

I was wondering the same thing. The specs all look pretty similar but they have a listing for the Professional at regular price.....Can anyone confirm?

No, this is their newly announced 4k quad. It does not have light bridge. Not worth it IMO.

Is the 4k version the phantom 3 professional? I've been looking for these and I thought there were these different models:

Standard (2.7k) ~ $600-700 usually
Advanced (2.7k) ~$900-1000 usually
Professional (4k) ~$1100-1300 usually

I'm surprised the 4k one (if this is professional version?) is priced the same as the Advanced version. Also it says it's a pre-order so just wondering if it's a new version like the standard + 4k camera or something along those lines (missing some of the additional professional features).

Edit - Okay you guys are now talking about this in the above posts as I created my post!
