This is got to be a wanna be Mavic.  What are y'all's thoughts?

It's definitely not any of the DJI drones pictured on that page. This is what you're going to get instead:

I wouldn't waste the money.
Saw another post who actually sent in for one and what he got was junk. Not even worth the money he spent.
Stick with DJI. It is hard to find a better Drone as good as the Mavic.

Just one more of the many scams. But I fail to understand that some people are stupid enough to go for them. My compassion for such cases is rather limited, sorry to say it frankly.

Scam indeed.  They rely on people who are excited about a drone so they will buy it without doing research.  Think about all the 1st time flyers who crash because they didn't research the drone before purchasing..

I agree, but shouldn't common sense warn if something is being sold for 10% or less of the real price?

What really worries me is the person that would buy one of these, never have flown a drone, and take this out among a crowd of people, and either the drone fails, or the "pilot" fails to control the craft.  Someone gets hurt.   Just saying.....

the drone pictured, batteries and controller on the link looks exactly like my E58. The pictures of the drone, batteries and controler posted below the drone description is the E58.
All the other pictures on the posting look like they were copied from the DJI drone family.
And i paid $49 for my E58 last winter, normally sells for $79.
I call it my BabyMavic. I flys great inside, when the weather is to bad to take his big brother out to fly.

Always purchase your DJI drones from dji.com or DJI authorize dealers.

If you purchase this or any similar scam you will receive a drone but it will look nothing like this, it will be a tiny plastic quad with no controller. It comes in a box about the same size as your average smartphone box and cost about 5 bucks to manufacture. How do I know this for sure? Because I fell for this scam and that’s what I received... ( ps , the drone will not even turn on)

Hey, I bought one, It was a phantom 4 Pro + with the bright screen and a fly more pack that had an extra battery,

No, wait a minute. Maybe that wasn't the deal. I did pay $1,842.00 more that this one.

Please heed my warning... Do not buy from FlamenX. I got scammed for $65.00. I reviewed and purchased a drone from FlamenX. The ad showed this really cool $350.00 drone with a 4k camera that was 80% off regular price on sale for $69.00.. I thought I would give it a try since I wanted to buy a drone but not spend much on the first one just to see if I did want to spend more. The ad said 9 in stock so I thought cool, I should get it in a few days.. WRONG! all of a sudden it was on back order and would have to wait 4 to 6 weeks. Plenty of time for them to get your money and run. When the drone arrived it was a $10 piece of junk the size of a usb flash drive... totally junk.... I sent email after email with no reply.
