Hey guys
Thinking about getting a Mavic Pro sometime in 2017.

Wondered if anyone here flys regularly in Dublin (a park etc)

I'd love to see one "in real life" and see the interface etc. I don't need / want to try it in person. Just interested in the various filming / tracking options and seeing how easy / hard it is. etc


I saw a guy flying a drone in Stephen's Green a few weeks ago but didn't want to bother him and actually I was suprised at the size of the audience he had.

I done a test of the Active Track feature last weekend. The tracking is set to my Discovery (Red one).

// disclaimer: i'm far from being an expert - i only start looking at the follow me modes this weekend ( https://youtu.be/mqTosTbr2iY )

i think your mavic ( or drones in general ) freak out a bit when in GPS mode while over water - might have to do with moving under while they're trying to keep gps track of what they're up to

but, once again, not 100% sure of it - can't remember what mode I was on when I flew mine over water

How long did it take everyone here to get theirs? Do they come from China or the EU? I ordered mine today and I'm heading off late next week, wondering it it will be here for then.

I have wondered where they come from, you are paying Euro on the DJI site, but if they are shipped from China do you get stung for import tax?

Jesus you gave me a heart attack! I had a look on the site and it mentions that it's all included in the price so I won't have to pay extra.

The waiting times are what put me off until now too. Didn't want to hand over €1500 and wait for weeks/months to get one.

Yeah I just posted the exact same sentiments earlier in bargain alerts.

Just a pity I can't grab one via Amazon as I have €300 in one4all vouchers that could have been used.
