DJI offer discounts three or four times a year.

And when they do, it’s across all dealers (including Argos et al) so keep your eyes peeled :+1:t2:

Oh, and put my name down for an Evo 2 6K :grimacing:

If I can find a release date and outlet in PA then I’ll price it up before I leave and let you know. I have offices and a warehouse in PA and can get them couriered over no problem.

If you could do that Joe, and make a buck or two in doing it, then I for one would want one !.
How would you stand for export/import taxes, etc ?.

If I DHL them in to the UK then DHL will charge the relevant VAT/Duty on import which is payable as they deliver them.

If I walk through Heathrow with one in my bag, then very unlikely to get stopped so would probably get away with it. Would be difficult to bring back more than one myself though as I would quickly run out of cabin bag space!

Looking at the website they haven’t got a release date yet but they are hinting at March. I am out there, March, May and June anyway. So could bring one through each time!

I buy all my camera gear in the US and usually it works out the same in USD as GBP here. So a lens that cost GBP1400 here would be USD1400 there, saving around 25-30% at todays exchange rates.

I should add there is no export duty or levy, only an import duty and VAT. If it is for own use and you walk it through it would be very unlikely they would charge you even if you were stopped.

If it was for myself, I would open it and fly it in the US, ditch the packaging and bring it in in the case. It is then a ‘used’ item and not new so nothing to pay anyway. Essentially classed as personal property. They wouldn’t know if I bought it in the US or took it out there with me.

Popped into Heliguy yesterday. They suggested that the rumours re the M3 and just that, rumours and doubt there will be a M3 until back end of the year.

They also told me that they are in discussion with Autel to become a dealer

That’s my understanding of bringing items in as “Gifts” :innocent:
