Just an FYI really, the Spark prices here in the UK are absolutey crazy.

I did toy with the idea of buying from overseas and shipping it over, but Customs here in the UK would have probably slapped a huge surcharge on it, which I didn't want to risk.

The fly less Spark is GBP£519 which at today's exchange rate is USD$665

The fly more is GBP£699 which is currently USD$899

Anyone else had to pay way over the odds?

WTF is that all about, DJI?

All down to the exchange rate, DJI like many others sets the price point is USD, the pound is weak. They set the price to be able to absorb variations in the exchange rate, this is why the Mavic looks good value compared to the Spark, the pound was healthy when they started selling it. You may recall that the price did get adjusted up in the UK when the pound started to fall against the dollar.

It's exactly the same in Euro price 599 and 799 Euros. That's why i cancelled my order at DJI and ordered it locally way cheaper, with 2 year warranty and got it delivered 2 days prior official DJI Lauch. Go figure out...

Prices in USA don't include taxes. Prices in UK and Europe include 17 to 25% VAT. There you go.
