    I'm in the market for an Inspire 1. Every place I've looked has them for basically 2k USD... But I found this when searching;

    DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter with 4K Camera and Inspire 1 3-Axis Gimbal B&H

    B&H Video has them for $1550 USD with free shipping. I'm always cautious when something seems to be "too good to be true". On the other multi-rotor forums I visit, people have seemed to have done business with B&H without problems. So they seem legit. I didn't see that these are refurbished units.

    Anyone have any thoughts on B&H or on maybe why they are selling these for almost $500 less than every other "major" seller (Multicopter Warehouse, Carolinadronz)

    TIA

    Looks like a great deal. I would order as soon as possible. B&H is reputable.

    It is a good deal and furthers my belief that an "Inspire 2" is close to launching...

    Yeah no kidding! Story of my life. I bought one from a forum member on Sunday and left money on the table. B&H is VERY respected in the mail-order industry. Order from them all the time.

    OK. One minor downside but just wanted to make sure you guys are paying attention. That is V.1 and NOT v.2. Minor, I know, but it is still one of the major reasons.

    I'm not nearly as upset with myself now. LOL

    They are dumping new-old inventory. Pure and simple. V.2 is still $1999.

    With V1, be prepared for the possibility of DOA TB47 battery. Order a TB48 just in case. -You are going to need an extra battery, anyway.

    Got my V1 from B & H. The battery was not DOA. I am very happy with my purchase.

    V1 has been approx $1500 for over a month. DJI has them listed on their website for the same. Spend the extra $500 and get the V2, if you hunt around a bit you can find them for $1800 or so.

    Funny as this sounds considering its only a 100 buck bump from when I posted, it "feels" close enough to the 2k mark, that I'll spring for the V2...

    V2 is well worth the extra $$$ IMHO.
