Item: DJI Phantom 3 Advanced with extra battery £749.99 potentially £712.49 after 5% manager's discount at Maplin.
Background: After hours of research I decided to buy a drone, specifically the DJI Phantom 3. As a newbie I thought the standard would be better for me but I found a great offer at Maplin (behind Liverpool St station London for the P3A + extra battery and free next day delivery for a total of £712.49 (£749.99 -5% discount). I believe this price makes it worth jumping up from the standard as the better quality remote with extra functionality really is worth it.
Consideration of online retailers: I spent a long time looking for a reputable retailer and considered online distributors such as Tobydeals, SLRHut, Drones for less. After extensive review I found several genuine negative reviews from buyers with a similar profile to myself (i.e. from the UK paying via PayPal). While it was cheaper online I went for a UK company with a physical presence.
Conclusion: I think £712.49 for the P3A with extra battery and next day delivery is an excellent price. DM me if you have any questions.
