Without a doubt it is.  In fact today I hit the 2000 mile mark with my Mavic Pro which has been my only DJI Drone.  And to add it is with a refurbished unit that I purchased in March of this year.  I have had absolutely zero issues with this amazing piece of techonogy.  I could not be happier with how well it has performed.  Another thing is I won some low noise 8331 props here from DJI on the forums and have put more than 1400 miles on them.  I know I hear all the time to change them out after so many miles or flights.  Now I am extremely religous in doing my pre-flight checks to ensure everything is good to include the props and I tell you they still look brand new.  I am not saying to keep running them as much as I have as they are a cheap replacement that insures the longetivity.  But looking at mine they look brand new and my bird flies straight as can be and to compare to my other brand new props they look identica so I see absolutely no reason to change them out.  Seriously 1400 miles on a single set of props and they look brand new?  I give a ton of props to DJI for building an extremely durable and reliable drone that I have put tons of hours and miles on.

Don't you just love it when your bird is stout like that?  LOL..  Contrary to what some say, DJI does make some great drones.  I'm trying to catch up with you, but I got a ways to go.  943 Miles for me.  Keep going and be safe.

That is quite a amazing milestone and very encouraging as I have been thinking of purchasing a Mavic Pro this upcoming holiday season unless the Mavic 2 is at a fair price. The one thing that concerned me was the way the Gimbal shakes around and hearing of the Gimbal overload errors and some pilots having to replace the ribbon cable.

Never had a gimbal issue at all with my MP.  Mine does not shake at all but is as smooth as can be at all times as far as footage goes.  I have only ever calibrated my gimbal maybe three times ever.  And that is just because.  Not saying others do not have issues at all but mine has been rock solid.

Without a doubt the best $679 I have spent on a piece of tech.  And yes hoping for many more miles.

Heartfelt congratulations dear friend for this extraordinary achievement! You are truly what they call a "frequent flyer" ;-). And what you have achieved is without doubt a result of your professional way of handling it. I wish you many more miles and happy landings!
Edit: DJI should award you the honorary grade ''Admiral'' here in the forum.

I know that much of it  does have to do with pre flight checks and safe flying.  But also aware that some just get bad eggs.  Thank you

Very impressive mate

Thank you.  Hope you are able to get the Inspire 2 my friend.  Even though larger and not as mobile as the MP or MA but what you can get out of it makes it worth it.  One day hopefully I will be able to get one.
