Still in preorder stage. From what I understand, they're expected to start shipping somewhere between Oct 15th and end of month.

HeliDirect is listing them as available 10/31.

I definitely want a Mavic to replacing my P1, but knowing that DJI makes several adjustments after a release has me holding off just a bit. I've been tempted by some P3A deals but I think the Mavic is the one for me as far as AP goes.

Does this unit have software that will control where you can fly like other dji products ? I.e. Within 5 miles of airports ? I live close to a very small private airport and there ok with me flying my planes and heliess at low altitudes and not in the flight paths . I'm new to dji products but thinking about getting one of theses .

Yes, I hear it is equipped with geo fencing.

DJI admitted that they pulled the wool over our eyes. Expect Christmas or later for release.

Quite a few seem to be in the wild from direct DJI orders.

I've yet to hear of any others being fulfilled through retail partners.

I got mine from the DJI store ordered it Sept -- Fly more package and it is awesome...

Cannot recommend it enough. Quality is par with the Phantom 4 and pretty much has every feature needed. Flight time is great and the ocusync connection technology is amazing. Great size and portability.

Default Got my DJI Mavic

My DJI Mavic showed up last night and am impressed with the quality.
One issue is that I can't seem to get the controller to turn off. It simply says connecting. I push the button once and then hold it down for a few seconds. I've tried this several times and can't seem to figure it out. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Todd

It likely takes a double click then hold for three seconds. The same for turning them on... Most newer DJI products work this way.

Got mine pretty early but I ordered it right after launch. Been enjoying it ever since.

Biggest feature of this cool little camera ship.... ITS NOT WHITE AND UGLY!

When people pull out a Phantom, all you hear are groans and moans ... "here comes another idiot to get us banned"... when I pull out the Mavic people practically run over to check it out.

Once they figure out it's made by the same people as the Evil White Ugly Flying Plastic Pillows, they don't seem to mind (colour is good, design is good, size is great).

---

Beware the camera has issues that bother some people (1080 60fps mode looks crap) but for the size you can't beat it.

If your looking for one, just drop by any Apple store, they seem to be hiding them in the back and not knowing what to do with them lol. Been finding them everywhere (be sure not to buy the demo model!!! One guy already did).

Yes it has GEO (Geo Fence) but unless you live right next to an International Airport it isn't a problem (shockingly). Its only if you try to fly basically over the Airport it won't let you. Nothing stopping idiots from being in the flight path though on approach and departure.

For people that need to do aerial inspections of any sort, you can just stuff this little guy into your glove box of your vehicle and pull it out when needed, it's THAT small yet has all the features of the bigger brothers and is stable as all hell.

Cheers

Cancelled my order from HeliDirect a while back due to all of the delays, but happened to stumble on one while traveling 1/2 way around the world.

Absolutely insane that its impossible to get one through normal channels, then I see several on the shelves inside of an airport in generic stores simply branded with "electronics" on the storefront...

Man, this thing is even smaller than it looks in the pics and videos.. Seems very solidly built.

Hopefully get a chance for a quick flight this evening before dark sets in.

I didn't Pre-Order, I checked/watched everyday and ordered as soon as it became available (01/12/16) at Best Buy. Showed Up Yesterday.

Of course now Mother Nature is jealous and wont let me try It out.
