Look, it’s 2016 and drones are quickly becoming a part of everyday life.
Maybe you’ve seen one flying overhead, if you live in the U.S. maybe you’ve had a parcel delivered by one – but you’ve definitely seen how they’re changing the way we film and see the world.
Something else most of us know – they aren’t cheap. That’s especially true when you’re going for top of the range, something like the 3DR Solo Quadcopter, that aficionados refer to as “the world’s smartest drone”.
Why, you ask? A few points:
- Solo runs two 1 GHz computers, one on the copter and one in the controller, connected via a powerful dedicated Wi-Fi signal.
- This enables Solo to do amazing things that no personal drone has ever been able to do.
- Its powerful and one-of-a-kind computer-assisted Smart Shot modes allow Solo to fly itself so you can focus on shooting; the perfect photo or video is always just a few taps away.
- Solo is also the first all-in-one drone to offer live streaming of HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device, as well as built-in HDMI for live broadcast in HD.
Sounds amazing – time for the kick in the nuts. The Quadcopter Bundle, which includes the Gimbal, Backpack, Battery, and 8 Propellers, is currently ON SALE at Droneworld for R23 995.
You can see that sale HERE – pretty pricey.
WE URGE YOU TO NOT PAY FULL PRICE!
We’re not the type to complete a purchase before doing a little shopping around, which is why the snooping begins.
Lo and behold, look what we find over on Amazon. It’s only the same Solo Quadcopter Bundle, complete with all the goodies, selling for $599 (R8 715 at $1=R14,55).
HERE is your proof – but if you’re on the ball you’ll see that they only ship within the United States. Some people might throw in the towel here, but we’re better than that.
We asked the team at Postbox Courier, the revolutionary service that is changing the game, to see how much it would cost for them to organise that Quadcopter finding its way to us.
Copter – $599 / R8 715.45
Sales Tax – $53.16 / R773.48
Shipping – $125.00 / R1 818.75
Clearance – $125.00
Import VAT – R1 342.18
Disbursement – R67.11
Total R12 841.97
See that, a little digging and some know-how and you’re getting that drone for nearly half the price.
Here’s the clincher – you click order and make your purchase, from which point Postbox Courier handles every element of getting that package promptly delivered to your door.
No more paying over the odds for imports, no more squabbling with shipping companies over prices – that’s not your job, you just brush up on your drone skills.
SO, ONE MORE TIME – HOW DO I ORDER PRODUCTS FROM OVERSEAS THAT DON’T SHIP TO SA?
You’ll be pleased to know the owners of Postbox Courier are South African. You’re in very safe hands, because you know they’re looking out for you.
