I now realize that ordering through the mail might not be the way to go. I recieved mine Nov. 5th from a pre-order. If I would have bought from a store I would have simply returned the defective drones. I've been without mine since pre-order. I've recieved 3 lemons in a row. We'll see if the 4th works.. I still don't have it.

I didn't want to make a $1400.00 investment to get a working drone some number of months later. Of course, the most I get is a we're sorry.. but that is it. Absolutely nothing else. It seems like an aweful lot of money for so many defective products.

Sorry.. I'm not happy about this. I've been a loyal fan up until now.

I understand your pain, had to wait 7 months to get my Mavic Pro. Can't you ask for a refund and then go to a local dealer ?

First problem was the IMU sensor. 2nd  it was camera gimbal stopped moving. 3rd is IMU sensor (different failure). I haven't received my 4th.

The thing that really sucks.. this entire time I've been without my drone.. the warranty still ticks down on it. At the rate I am going it could literally wear off before I have a working, non-defective drone.


This is really depressing.

Yikes, sorry to hear that. Hope you get a working model soon -- seems like they should extend your warranty coverage in compensation for your trouble.

I also know they will expedite shipping to speed up the process with multiple returns due to warranty issues. That's what happened to me and I got next day air shipping both ways after I complained and the case was elevated.

I wish. They didn't even do that little for me. I got a "we're sorry" and that was literally it. They just told me they aren't extending the warranty either.

Oh.. and I'm not sure how much more vocal I can be. I'm trying to be nice. I've been a loyal DJI fan. I own many of their products.

I can't tell you how much this bums me out

Similar problems when I tried to buy a P4P Obsidian. After 3 bad ones, I bought an original white one.

If they give me the ability to buy something else I would consider that. So far they haven't offered anything. Not a single thing.

I think DJI hates me

OMG - that’s bad! I’m sorry to hear that. Perhaps by raising it on here somebody will take personal ownership of your case. I dealt with one person when I returned my P4P in Nov’16 and he was great. Kept me posted all the way. Took 4 weeks but a perfect drone returned. I wish you luck on your fourth and hopefully final replacement.

I think think DJI generally underestimates the US consumers expectation for customer service. If a company does not deliver as expected for a high cost product, the find that unacceptable and should at least be compensated with a perfect replacement in a timely manner. Not sure if Chinese companies have a limited code of ethics in this area.  Of course, if there was a decent competitor out their it would also help.

Yeah it's been basically that x3 I received mine Nov. 5th. I still don't have a working drone.

Got my drone in November. Have not had one single flight where the app doesn't drop. Been asking DJI almost daily what the problem is. Once in a  while they respond with something I have clearly told them I have tried, then another month goes by before a response. Really drives you mad when you save for months to receive a piece of crap.

Yeah i'm supposed to get a 4th drone on Tues. No expedited shipping. Nothing to make it up to me. At least other people like me got expedited shipping.. I guess DJI hates me even though I own 4 of their products.

Here is a fun update.. this replacement they sent me has a defective USB cover. One of the TAB is so weak plastic the cover won't stay in. NIce. It will be another month Another month of warranty burned up. Another month without my $1400.00 investment. Another month I will feel like DJI just effing hates me because I don't get expedited shipping or treated as a valued customer

4 bad drones in a row. SMDH

The other thing is that I am not thrilled about getting a used/rebuilt/refurb whatever it is .. I paid for a new one. I would think I would get a new, working, non-defective drone. I paid for that and haven't gotten it. Sending me used drones is very disingenuous when I've never had a working new drone.

If you want to look into it and make sure they contact me I'd appreciate that. Last time I was told someone would contact me, the case was left high and dry and added a half week on to my already horrible wait time.

Any chance you can tell then to hurry up so I can either a. Finally get a working, non-defective, non-used drone...or b. Get a refund.
