    Hi - I was snooping around amazon and there was a parenthetical next to the FC40 that it was discontinued by the manufacturer, yet I see it still displayed on the DJI website.Does anyone have any insight/info on this? This model appears to be a perfect match for a gift to my son who after proving to be a pretty good pilot and photog on a syma x5c wants to upgrade. I like that it has its own camera yet can still accommodate a gopro should he want to upgrade.

    Please let me know what you have heard. Thanks for all your help.

    It has been discontinued but you may see some overpriced units being sold on eBay. The price used to be $499 new and occasionally $419 on sale with the camera. When DJI discontinued the FC40 it resulted in price gouging by opportunists. The Phantom 1.1.1 is sometimes available with a 5.8 ghz TX/RX but without the camera. The cameras are also now overpriced when bought separately because they are becoming rare.

    There are still a few leftover at hobby stores. Also try the used/refurb section for B&H.
