Well, I say shipped. No move today and DHL say that it hasn't been sent to them yet. I was wondering why the estimate was Friday!

Yeah, not a great time. Ended up trying DHL instead — much quicker.

Something I noticed about DJI was that the support people (I was in touch twice) typed very slowly and took a while to respond. This meant I kept getting the "You have not typed anything in a while. We will disconnect the chat in two minutes". Not a nice tactic.

I'm going to call and see. Our house insurance has accidental damage coverage, which replaced a laptop that was broken outside the home before. We'll see what they say about the Mavic...

Has this claim brought your premium up? is it worth to insure it? For ~$150 you can get it insured with DJI for two accidents, I think.

Not that I noticed, it was a couple of years ago now. Doesn't matter anyway they won't cover the Mavic!

The DJI Care thing is tempting but it's €120 upfront, then another €70 the first time something happens and €120 the second time. Not to mention it only lasts a year and you can't renew it.

Hm, still it may well worth it if you are an amateur like myself, and you probably won't need it the second and other years as you get better and better

My dad has every one of their drones bar the inspire 2. The mavic will be the one getting the most use. The design is just amazing

Taking the inspire out is a real commitment, and becomes quite awkward when you include a case and storage for controller, batteries,... especially if you want to go off the beaten track, same with the phantoms

The mavic just makes so much more sense, literally fits in your jacket pocket, and controller in the other pocket

This is the first drone he bought direct from Apple

If all of their drones were the same price, I would still choose the mavic

Good luck with your mavics everyone, I think they are a bargain for that price

Mine arrived! It's sitting on the desk charging and of course today it's p*ssing down so no flying for me. I might terrorise the dogs indoors later.

I ordered early morning yesterday 21st on dji.com, website says payment confirmed and shipped.

When did you receive DHL tracking number? 24 hours later I haven't got any shipping info from DHL

I've ordered the fly more + 1 extra battery, I beginning to think i should have split this order into two ..I might be waiting longer if they don't have the extra battery.

I've emailed DJI for info.


I started quadcopters two years ago first with a tiny Cheerson cx-10 banggood.com, then an indestructible ARRIS FPV250 from hobby-wing.com, I can fly line of sight pretty good now. Lots of crashes, replaced lots of props
I've put the time in, flying figure eights, sideways, nose in and nose out, coordinated turns, tight turns around goal posts etc. Its good to know Ill have these skills to help avoid crashes or fly aways

Gotta get this mavic have some fun before everyone has one and we're colliding, falling out of the sky and the authorities crack down on it

edit: I've always been careful not to cause any disturbance to people, pets, property or wildlife in the slightest
