just checking the latest quote on H batteries here guys in Oz...
Not good news... This one wants just on $190 for one!

Yuneec Drones | Yuneec Typhoon Quadcopters New

Surely they should be a little cheaper than that... Maybe $150 would be fair?
I've got a couple on back order in the US for $84(US)!!!
Don't start about charges for shipping to be added for Oz, that US price includes to
the shipping charge to the states....... the b%#~<}y batteries come from China and we're closer!!!

Yes, I did and it's everything I thought it would be.
Doing more baby steps today... With one battery....grrr
Yeh went down to our local shop today and had a play with it. I have to say, It is lighter than i expected which is great and the controller feels fantastic to hold. I will hold off till the next shipment so that gives me time to enjoy my 2 x P2's before one has to go.
Good luck with it Chris, Hope it gives you many years of fun.

Amazing how prices differ so much for similar items.
For example the DJI P4 battery sells for $289.00 here in Australia compared to what netjam said above $175.00 for the H battery.
So many advantages of going the Yuneec direction as most everything is saving us money. When you consider buying a P4 with the additional cost of a tablet, and here we get the whole package much less and in my opinion equal to if not better than the p4, I think we are doing well. Whats your thoughts guys? am I being 1 eyed here of fair in my comments? For those of you who do not know this, I am the owner of 2 x P2's with gopros and i love them heaps But my next buy will be the H without a doubt.
