    That's Ebay pricing, pre-release by retailers, I wouldn't pay any attention to that.

    Years ago, PS3 was going for $1,000+ when they first came out and nobody had them in stock.

    I had a chat with someone on the DJI website this morning. See below. I'm not sure how much I should trust what was said, but this person said that the pricing should be released pretty shortly. She also explained that the TB48 will have an official flight time of 22 minutes compared to the 18 minutes for the TB47.

    (05:30:42) Bob E.: I have a question first before I buy it.
    (05:31:16) Bob E.: Is Lightbridge GROUND STATION built into the RC?
    (05:31:59) Cherry: no
    (05:32:08) Bob E.: Are you absolutely sure?
    (05:32:55) Bob E.: Also, How much is the TB48 and TB47 battery and what are the differences?

    (05:34:27) Cherry: TB47 18mins
    (05:35:12) Bob E.: What do you mean "is still under process?" for Lightbridge?
    (05:36:02) Cherry: lightbridge just for FPV
    (05:36:11) Cherry: not ground station
    (05:37:39) Bob E.: So the lightbridge built into the Inspire One provides FPV to the C1 Remote Controller but cannot provide Ground Station capability at this time?
    (05:39:09) Cherry: yes
    (05:39:35) Cherry: another new lightbridge ,
    (05:41:06) Bob E.: Another lightbridge what?
    (05:42:37) Cherry: because we use the update lightbridge ,
    (05:42:53) Cherry: better then the old one
    (05:43:52) Bob E.: So will the Inspire 1 work with old lightbridge or only with new one?

    (05:45:05) Cherry: inside
    (05:45:47) Bob E.: Will old GroundStation work with new one built inside Inspire 1?
    (05:46:17) Cherry: sorry do not get the official news about it
    (05:47:48) Bob E.: Will TB48 battery be available on Dec 1st?
    (05:48:26) Bob E.: Will chargers for Phantom 2 batteries work for TB47 and TB48?

    Well $150 is too low and $200 is close $s to a 25C 6S 5400mAh LiPo alone.

    Now add all the BS smart/intelligent hardware plus the DJI 'proprietary' tax and I'll be it's a bit north of that.
