As per the above and other's experience with batteries from tomtop, just pay the extra with gearbest to avoid additional charges, that's my experience with at least 15 orders.

The drone and spare props delivered (through Ireland express) with code drone1026 comes in at €343 at the moment. What's the chance of getting it before Christmas if ordered today!! Thanks for all the super footage BTW!
No worries mate! Looking at others experiences delivery has taken anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. (10 to 30 working days). I'd expect it will arrive before Christmas, but you never know with our Postal service combined with the Chinese service, hmmm....

I got my battery through banggood but had to pay 28e customs on top.

You have to order them separately on Gearbest, think they can only ship one battery at a time.

I'd recommend an extra set of props, just in case for around 12e.

Let me know if you have any other queries. Best of luck!

Awesome! Yeah, there's some tracking from China, can sometimes be a week or two without an update and you're only able to track the day before with an post. The delivery and delivery updates from the customer service team are downsides. The best thing is to expect 6 week delivery and when it shows up in a month, you'll be happy.

You need an SD card to record and take photos, but more importantly you need one to update the firmware, this must be done when setting up.

I use memoryc as they're based in Ireland, free 1-2 day delivery and the cards are always genuine. I know others use Amazon. The max recommend by Xiaomi is 64GB. FYI 4k video for 5 minutes of recording is around 2GBs. Get at least a class 10 card, the faster the better.

Here's some options
