on jessops the price went up also, then it went back down last night. i think the price hike was because of the weak dollar and pound vs the Chinese Yen etc. the way dji have handled the mavic release they should not have increased the price, it wont affect current buyers tho who are already committed :-)

Na i don't think trump had any effect tbh i just think that they priced the device to cheap, but given to current currency fluctuations and the massive demand for the mavic they have probably under costed the device manufacturing and b.o.m

Very.co.uk offered me 20% discount code to use . You get these every now and then. They are also doing a 10% cashback on the mavic if you opt for BNPL. So you also get 12 months interest free + all the discount! Crazy deal but! Very are a bunch of Idi07$ so if anything goes wrong with your order, you are screwed relying on the atrocious customer care.

There are some good deals on ebay both form the U.S.A and China, seems theres a lot of mavics in China atm.... There are also some crazy prices on ebay too. But China and U.S.A seem cheapest, even with delivery cheaper than DJI store even.... food for thought

Not at all. Its better to look for discount options here in the UK. Buy from China or USA and you will be hammered heavily with import taxes. If the thing has issues you may have problems with warranty. Definitely not a good idea

You're buying a dji product, if theres an issue, the product goes back to dji to be fixed, i see no issue. Might only be subject to VAT as the product is deemed as duty free. and of course, thats all depending if the seller sells the product advertising, on the box, whats inside....

So even if you did have to pay the VAT, you're only paying £4 more than from the DJI site and getting the drone sooner than if purchased through DJI....
