Very disappointed to see you cannot purchase DJI Avata ( No RC ) on its own, only the DJI Avata Pro-View Combo, once again fails to reward loyalty in its products.

what You saying... it's sold solo - maybe depends on each market... or just they wanna milk early buyers most push them for sets
what is pain for EU, is that new goggles 2 are not standalone, only in 1400euro pack :/
and it's not even fly more pack, that is extra 249euros...

Yeah, just tyhoughjt that too. You have to reserve it and then they let you know. Got 2 sets of V2 goggles and the Controller 2 with the FPV. Wanted the drone, additional battery and the filter set. Sucks you can't just buy them. No use for pilots who already have half the package. DJI needs to have a word. This drone fit's into my cinewhoop flying and can then sell my Cinelog30 to replace it with this.

That's exactly what I wanted to buy as well, as I said DJI don't reward loyalty which makes no sense.

I was about to purchase avata but "reserve" stopped me and as I have V2 goggles and RC I see no point in shelling 900+ Euro just to try Avata

Agreed. I was going to order one too but like so many others, I already have the goggles and controller from the FPV package and don't need all the extras.  Just wanted to chime in. I am assuming this might change sooner or later.

So that's why the solo version isn't on Amazon... didn't realised that "Reserve" button on the official store till you pointed it out.

What a messed up release, and all because they want to get rid of the old stock. This release seems like a bait to me, you need to spend a more than 1800€ if you want the new glasses, the standard controller and three batteries and you won't even get a bag to carry it or a 60W charger.

Just going to wait for a proper combo (batts+controller+new goggles)/SE version/discount/Avata 2.

Agreed, lot of people being put off buying, it's straight out of the 'how not to launch a new product' book.

DJI has prioritised the bundles first to drag as much money out of new pilots first. I had a convo with one of the UK stockists and the bundles are coming in today. they have no idea or date for when the drone only boxes are coming. Stinks really. Big time dissapointment.

They must have had an awful lot of motion controllers sitting around gathering dust.  I’m skipping this one as well, I’m not gonna buy all new gear just to fly a whoop.  They pulled this with the M3P as well.  I folded and bought an RC bundle that time.  No more.

I just got a 'The product you are interested in is back in stock' email for the DJI Avata (No RC) listing: The only downside is the shipping estimate is 18 business days vs 1 for the combos.

Same, and below that it says 20 to 22 business days after payment is confirmed.  Think I’ll stand pat on this one still.

Unfortunately I agree, having never flown FPV the Remote would be the only thing I feel familiar with. I have purchased online a remote as well as the very expensive combo. Hope its worth the expense.

DJI's next chapter in how to screw up a new product launch.

And even worse:
The next proof that DJI is absolutely ONLY after the big, fast money and everything else (the loyal customers) has no value. But that is no surprise with such a Chinese company

There's supposed to be a "Drone Only" option, but I haven't actually seen it available. Fortunately, the Pro View Combo meets my needs perfectly...except for the price!
