    4419 I am seeing.
    Plus post and spare batteries.
    My cost will be closer to 5100

    I hate being obsolete in technology.
    So do I dive in or wait?
    The next step is a fully decked out S1000.
    Got to have a hobby

    I did notice that the prices have been increased. Close to 10% is a bit too much.

    It is not the inspire price that is changing. It is the value of your country's dollar. Price has been the same for me in US dollars since pre-order.

    That's right "kick start the economy, start a war". Just joking.....
    But 10% increase is above the AUD drop in value.
    Price gouging again by Australian business.

    No .. DJI sets the price that the dealers charge. $4509 is the price in the DJI store too.

    So I apologise to retailers.
    DJI upped the price to promote P3 sales and widen the price gap.
    It makes the P3 a better option for price but not for product looks.

    I am not sure if you are reading what everyone is telling you but DJI did NOT up any prices.... It's your dollar. It only happened in your country (and prob a couple of others). They would not raise he price just in one location and not the others. Can't be more clear then that. The economies of the world are not the same. There is a money market and yours just got a little weaker. That is it. For DJI to sell there at the old price, when they exchange their money back to the Yuan or whatever it is they use, they would loose out and make less per unit.

    Don't get your nickers in a knot.
    I do understand the exchange rates and how they work.

    Didn't seem like you were understanding after it had been said a few times. Thought I'd throw in some caps so you'd see my post. I am a fan of my DJI products and it just gets old when people continually come in here and slam them. Not that your not allowed to, it is just annoying. It makes it a little bit more annoying when the stuff is untrue.

    I like the DJI products.
    I believe that it is far superior to the competition. Even with their "follow me" feature, Inspire and Phantom is better.
    It's just that I am tight with my money and I make every dollar I spend count.
    I save my coin and never use credit.
    Maybe a P3 will do.

    DJI sets the price in US$. Our Aussie dollar has fallen from over parity with the US$ last year to Aud$0.77...do the Mathis and weep along with me.
