Well..... you don't have to spend THAT kind of money on one. Where are you Bob?
I'm just south of Daytona. You can start out cheaply enough and as you learn to fly or (unless you already do) there are many options you can use that may not cost as much. I fly the FC40 with the FC40 camera and get pretty good results. I spent $495 for mine....rtf and including camera and sorta cheap gimbal. You might try going to DJI's web site .... or ebay to grab one.

Phantom 1 Version Release Chronology:

Can anyone tell me the the order in which the Phantom 1 was released, starting with the earliest until the most recent?

Is this correct? Earliest: Phantom v1, then v1.1, then v1.2, then v1.21, and finally, the most recent: v1.1.1

Thanks Buzz, the very last thing I need is another quad. Until the next one comes along. lol I have a v1.1.1 and a PV2+ as well as a F550. I just can't see spending 3k for an Inspire unless I'm using it to make money, and that's not possible at the moment. I'm in Ft Myers just north of Naples

$3K is just a warm-up. Did you need some $500 batteries to go with that? You could easily have 5K to 6K tied up in one of those.

The batteries are 150 and 200 depending on the capacity.

That is for the Inspire not the Phantom.

I have had really good luck with the Phantoms I've owned and would love to have an Inspire but the price tag is just too much for me.

My apologies on the price of the batteries, they're more like $200. I thought I saw where they were going to be $500.

Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you were buying a Phantom 2. I'll never spend 3k on anything in the r/c arena. Ft. Meyers? Might as well be in another state. ha.
You're a long way south of me and on the other side of the state. I was hoping you were closer so we fly together.
