Saw this over the weekend\
Walmart accidentally offered up bargain-basement rates for DJI drones and other camera gear from a company called Ecom Electronics that retails through its website.
so are you saying that the advertised products where more than a price mistake and actually a product mistake? People who ordered and paid for an Inspire 2 actually received a battery?If you go to the eComElectronics website you will see that they do not have any DJI products, they sell small replacement batteries, but nothing for a DJI product. A number of people I know, including myself, tried to get them but got emails the next day cancelling the orders. A couple of people who didn't inquire and used expedited delivery received this.

I can't speak to the intentions, or the cause of how this happened, but I can describe what I found when I dug in to research these listings. If you looked completely through the listed products, which included almost every quad that DJI produces, the "Manufacturers Part Number" for the listings all had this battery under one part number or another instead of a DJI product part number. I don't think this was a malicious act, but instead a huge mistake associating the wrong product description to the listing for these batteries sold by this 3rd party supplier. The general consensus was, if I get the quad that's an amazing deal (steal) and if I don't, I will simply return it to Walmart for a store credit, but that it was simply too good an opportunity to not try. One of the people that expedited the shipping, hoping to get a steal before the company realized what had happened, got their package today and posted a picture of it.so are you saying that the advertised products where more than a price mistake and actually a product mistake?

This is actually more serious. I could understand them trying to get out of a pricing mistake, but actually sending out a totally different product and thinking this is ok is bordering on what some of the fraudulent operators do on ebay etc. Mistake or not, this isn't really acceptable
It wasn't even in the fine print, it was one of the first things in the listings, that the 3rd party provided the info and that that they weren't responsible for mis-advertisements. I also find it hard to figure out how anybody got this deal since I looked through Walmart's listings, sorted low to high price, and saw all the 17.99, 22.99, 24.99 etc., all the way up to the Air Fly more combo for 70.99. There were correctly priced items along side of them but the one thing that all the "lowball priced" items had in common, from the Air, Mavic, Phantom and high end Inspire packages listed, was the 3rd party supplier... eComelectronics!I'll bet if you dig through the fine print on the websites, you'll find disclaimers somewhere absolving them of errors like this.
