Hi All

I am looking at ordering a Phantom 4 Pro directly from DJI (Seems to come out quite a bit cheaper) however postbox courier (http://www.postbox-courier.com/) are not able to bring in the LiPo batteries in if they are not part of the original kit (i.e. extra batteries). What is the normal mechanism used to bring batteries in as they do seem to be quite a bit cheaper when purchased directly from DJI?

Has anyone imported one of these drones and how smooth was the process?

Thanks

You'll have to ship the extra batteries separetly. Only one battery can be shipped with the Phantom as it will be considered as part of the kit.

Something to do with FAA regulations

Thanks, this however seems to indicate that they will not ship additional LiPo batteries (Even if shipped separately), am I not understanding this correctly?

"Due to regulations by the IATA, FAA and the TSA, Shipito no longer will be able to ship loose Lithium Ion batteries (PI965) for 0ur customers. This includes spare cell phone, and Laptop batteries, as well as power banks, and mobile chargers."
