I had the same problem. It seems to do with the time you try to join. Watch it. Don't start a new swarm, join the current one. There is no benefit to start a new one when another is current. Everyone in the swarm group gets the swarm price not just the one who started it.
1. click on the JOIN button.
2. it will show you how many have joined that swarm.
3. then add your email address and click on JOIN THE SWARM
4. You will get confirmation

What I don't know is:
1. are you limited to purchase qty 1 per swarm at the swarm price?
2. does the swarm close with 6 people or go on to 8 or 10 or ?
3. if you use more than 1 e-mail address to get to 6 but don't use that address to BUY does the rest of the group loose the swarm price? I could use my wife's e-mail to swarm but not to buy if I could buy 2 they would sell the same amount, so??

I don't see a SWARM button at the bottom of this item!?!
How did you?
I see a SWARM at the bottom of the Eagle Tree product but not the camera system.

Thanks,

That isn't the problem... I was in on the Orange RX Swarm that got 6 people, but could never get it to give me the price, when I tried to order it...

I've given up on it... To many hoops to jump through...

I think the hoops are just a way go get more e-mail addresses to send advertising.
I have not seen a complete step by step, what to expect, from swarm to order but it does look like some people have got the deals.

OK, I just joined that swarm (now there are three) and it says that ther are 21 hours left.
Did they change the times?? I thought it was 12 hours.

I also noticed that I had to join again from IE without caps lock on.
I tried the chrome browser with caps on and it wouldn't let me join. WIERD.

FYI this is the 6 channel version which I wanted instead of the orange 4 channel.

I didn't see it either, I realise now that in order for a swarm sale there must be a link at the bottom.

Anyway...

These are on backorder but they are arriving steadily every week and placing a backorder for them is the only reliable way to get them. I have one so far and it is fabulous and have been flying with it for several weeks without a single glitch.
