I have bought a brand new Mavic pro Back late April 2017. Upon unboxing, i had issues with iphone / ipad and android phone connecting to the display of the camera...drone and RC was able to connect but mobile device does not display nor connect to RC / Drone. After alot of emails between China Support and US, phone calls with DJI, forum posting, posting on youtube...issue was not resolved which now bring my REMOTE CONTROLLER flying out to DJI. Remember - this was late April but since I was reaching out DJI almost every day....it took them till mid May to tell me to ship it out. DJI has officially received the REMOTE CONTROLLER on May 18, 2017 (i state the year as i foresee that this will arrive at a different year). It is now July 12, 2017 and i still do not have my REMOTE CONTROLLER.

Now, why do i not have this yet? This is because DJI apparently sent it to the incorrect address! Talk about return to home issues...with a remote controller! To date, the drone hsa not taken flight and likely is broken now because it has remain unused for 2 months!

It was planned to get an osmo mobile and the new phantom BUT with this.....id likely have to pass...

DJI - not only do i regret getting this brand new defective remote, your customer service is so frustrating...specially when no one respnds to 7 emails i have sent asking whats happening.

My question to the community - how the heck should i get these DJI folks to listen and do the right thing. There is no point of escalation in this support structure. I need DJI to look into this and make sure the lost in flight REMOTE CONTROLLER at least gets back so i can sell and get rid of it.

Send a Private Message to DJI-Mindy, point her to this thread, and I suspect she'll get your problem resolved.

File a report with the better business bureau.  I got a response 3-4 days after I did that.  Mind you, still not solution, but at least some contact.

Try pressing the RTH button on GO 4 to see if the RC will return. :-)

(sorry for the sarcastic humor attempt)

I would also try PMing DJI-Ken and/or DJI-Natalia

Can't you do some flying with just the app over Wifi? Just to get it at least in the air while waiting for the controller?

@marcelkoks - yes i did try flying wifi but it keeps disconnecting allowing me to fly at very short distances....dont even know the behavior yet of the nth when it losses signal.

@Griffith - frankly i am tempted to HIT anything that's DJI...and these are not buttons. as of yesterday, UPS tracker says the package is back with DJI....and what will DJI do next? im sure it will get lost in the system because it has no label for repairs or directed to any one in the organization.

let me try the 2 new names...hopefully they can help....at this stage i have no clue at all how DJI can redeem the their brand value in my network reach. buying a DJI device is not far from buying from a dollar store except dollar store junk is only for a dollar.

i agree with other users - try get in touch with other dji people on the forum - mindy and ken have been able to help me before - i guess they have quite a work schedule as also they would have to do following up with other people they esculate to - keep bugging them.

My drone also arrived a while after chinese new year - i will never know for sure but always suspected my drone issues had something to do with that - when people do enter their delivery date i notice that it is very often in that period around 2 months after chinese year year. Does not help your problem though, sorry and hope u come right.

Just a stupid question I know... but is your SMTP working properly? (I just cant imagine 7 e.mails lost and now also Jasper confirmed waiting for your mail what was sent but not received) there was an issue reported few months ago with phishing/hacking dji e.mails... are you using correct mails and are you sure nobody hacked your pc, mail account or something?
Good luck btw.

this is still going no where....people who have responded on the thread seem to understand my situation....BUT when relayed to DJI - its seems that they cannot understand.

Let me try again for the sake of this thread.

1. i have a brand new RC that doesn't connect to my phone
2. chat rep and phone rep suggested RC be sent to them after zero success in troubleshooting
3. i asked if this can be sent to an address i specify as i am traveling - reps says yes, please detail in the form i am to send
4. RC gets to DJI on May
5. RC gets shipped out On july!
6. DJI sends to the wrong address!
7. DJI phone rep suggests it be sent back to DJI / return to sender!
8. RC lost in the whole shipping process because it doesn't have am issue number!
9. No one from DJI is putting attention and working on this!

You have plenty of e-mail addresses and telephone numbers here, perhaps someone can get the ball rolling for you, good luck:

I think DJI are a good company but even good companies need a kick now and again, until someone takes them to court they will think their invincible. Ive been without a functional drone for 70 days now. My advice to anyone with any faults is to send it in for repair otherwise once it fly's away or crashes DJI and any suppliers will try to shrug responsibility.
