Careful!
Another Ebay scam, similar to the Futaba radio one.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJI-Phantom-...item2348bb1cc9

I just thought I'd point this out, since it already appears that 114 people have already been duped. While I was on Ebay this morning to check the status of an order, I saw this ad for a DJI quadcopter, for what seemed like a super-too good to be-low price. Not that I'm in the market, however even I know being a non quad guy that $59 seems wayyy too low for this. Now, here's the kicker. Not only did they just copy and paste info, but at the end, and here's my favorite part and I quote, " Experienced Seller, check out over four thousands positive feedbacks and buy with confidence."

However, they've only been an Ebay member since Jan 04, and have exactly two feedbacks. Although they are good, they are both identical, which seems a tad fishy.

So, gist is, if anyone feels compelled to buy, I'd just exercise some caution and be very careful. Oh, the quadrama.

FREE shipping! Can you imagine; it might cost almost the same amount they're selling it for to ship it here to the U.S.

I saw them going for $15 a while back, $59 is totally realistic.

(Of course, the $15 was a scam too)

When I first looked it said 117 sold,, now 118,, these guys that dumb?

This can go for a day before ebay closes it down?? Crazy

1,702 viewed per day
More than 10 available / 118 sold

1 out of every 15 guys who see it just jump in blindly,, that's just insane

So that's where the container that fell off the boat ended up.
Dang currents, I could have made a killing on them.
