$499 in the USA, UKP 519 here in the UK at a very fair and reputable dealership.  At today's rate 519 equates to $670.

Guess how many I'll be ordering? Hint: division by this number is mathematically undefined.

Lucky your still in Europe, after brexit another $100. Yes your right ripoff everywhere in Europe . And I don't believe this is all down to taxes and duties.

I planned to sell my mavic with £300 loss, move to other country, convert £1200 to local currency, buy brand new mavic pro and spark.

I know its a pain, but I brought one to go along with my Mavic (once DJI repair the mavic) , another thing, in the uk the range is limited to 500M, anyway it will be nice to have a go indoors as of the size

I urge UK buyers to think again before pandering to this unfairness.  It's really not right.  It's even more than Adobe rip we Brits off.

You are pretty close with that idea,  as with some extreme care a discounted fair can be had for the difference,    so you can get a couple days in the USA and a Mavic or a spark,  for the price of a UK Mavic/spark. i know we are hung by our VAT system, just feels naff, in this situation.

Ive posted a bit from the manual, 500m is stretching it, the 5.8ghz range is 300m!!!

Blame people who voted for Brexit, that's the reason, the Pound tanked due to that, DJI can;t be expected to pay for it

Here in Australia its costs $859, now even with the exchange rate to the US we are getting ripped off big time. I would love if some one can give a reason to why this is so!!!
They even say free Freight, well that's obviously not true or well may be it is, but still the price difference is crazy. I love there products, but man they need to sort out there pricing so
not to alienate the rest of the world.

I was all set to buy a spark when I travel to the states in the summer. I was told there would be a warranty issue and that I'd have to return any warranty claims via the USA which would be a real pain in the ass
