There is a scam on Indiegogo purporting to be DJI selling P3s for a fraction of the price.
They have some cut and paste P3 advertising material and claim to deliver in March 2016.
In a couple of days they have already caught over 100 suckers.
It just proves that a fool and his money are soon parted.

There is no way this is DJI.  It is outright fraud.
This guy is only going to take your money.
Indiegogo haven't acted on my warning and it's still live.
Don't get caught.

Perhaps someone from DJI can get this closed down?

The domain name Indiegogo.com was created 4-19-2007
Domain name owned by Eric Schell
Registrar is GODADDY.COM, LLC
Indiegogo, Inc. is associated with  34 other domains

But the content sure seems to be a scam to me.  Unreasonable pricing is just not practical to be legit.

Indiegogo is a well known crowdsourcing platform, the creation date and domain owner is (mostly) irrelevant for what is going on here.
A user of the platform has set up what looks like a scam, the only way to stop it is to keep reporting it to Indiegogo (there's a link on the page) to get them to remove this "campaign".

I agree with you.
It is a good idea if DJI can post a warning on their website or facebook group.
This could have a serious impact on DJI credibility
Those scammers already raised $70k.

Complete scam - to get discounts at that rate you  would have to order thousands,  so 130+ units no chance!

Ahhhh....I see that now.  Indiegogo is a site similar to "Go Fund Me".  The scammer definitely need to be reported.  And should have to reimburse all the people who have contributed money.  Don't know if that can be done though.

Perhaps the guy is hoping that DJI is coming up with a better mousetrap than the Phantom 3 Professional, so it will be heavily discounted by dealers and DJI when that happens. Still a scam, and a gamble all built into one.

You may not be illiterate but it doesnt look like you're that sharp.
You DO know the thread is 6 months old, right!

The last one I saw you just try to troll was almost a year old.

Have a nice day
