Any word on extra batteries hitting North America? I see people in the UK getting extra batteries but have not seen any retailers in North America having them in stock. Any leads???

The last time I spoke with Parrot support they were hoping for around 15-20 days from US release date to have them available. We'll see?

Amazon.com has them listed but they are always out of stock. They have the option to buy and when they come in they will send them to you. People are reporting that they are receiving batteries this way. Not sure on how long they are waiting but it might be a option.

I emailed them today wanting to know when I can expect batteries in Canada. No real answer for a time frame but they gave me links to props out of China. A lot cheaper then I can buy them in the USA.

This is Bella from Parrot support team and I am happy to be helping with your case # 1182893, concerning your Parrot .

This is to confirm that the batteries are not yet available for Canada but I will subscribe you to the news feed so once they are available you will be notified with an email .

As for the propellers :

It is always our aim at Parrot to provide you, our customer, with top quality service to the best of our ability.

Best Regards,
Bella,

Just to follow up, I put an order in on July 25th for 2. I have not received them at this point and for a while they were de-listed on Amazon. They are now listed again, as out of stock but order-able, so I'm hoping that means I might see a tracking number soon.

finally got mine from Parrot.com yesterday.
I ordered one day after you from Amazon. They just updated my arrival today from unknown to sometime from September 7rd through October 3rd. I'm not amused.

I hope that cranks down a bit more.

At least you guys can get them, there is still none in Canada to buy. Yes I can order from China but they want like 185 bucks a battery. They can suck my you know what :(

If we were closer I'd order for you. Canada is not exactly out reach in Minneapolis for a meet up but I think you are a bit far east of us.

Thanks for the offer, I have had a few offers like yours but with shipping and the exchange rate I am better off waiting for someone like Bestbuy to get them in stock. They will actually be cheaper as there will be no duty then.
I'm 35 miles from the US border so if I need to make a run to the border its not much of a problem. :)

Well I did have my battery on order with Amazon but after a week or so I saw that Parrot had them for sale. Cancelled my Amazon order and ordered from Parrot.com. Took a week and a half to ship from Ill. to Ca. But at least I finally got my second battery and in the mean time I all got Follow me and Flight Plan for 99 cents each. So it worked out.

The date has been updated to "Arriving Aug 27 - Aug 28". We'll see.
