Guess its going to be at least a couple of more weeks for TB48s

"DJI has delayed the first TB48 shipments for unspecified reasons. For the past three weeks we’ve been told they were arriving on Monday this week to all tier one dealers but they weren’t able to come through by the date which is extremely disappointing."

They are available from some dealers in the US, such as Adorama. I was just looking at them earlier.

My dealer received 10. I was only able to purchase 1.

A little let down, but overall thankful I got 1!!!!
They're based out of Vegas.

Also said more batteries and prop lockes would arrive before the next month

Sorry! Batteries are on back order at Adorama. Wish they had said so on the site.

Any updates on TB48 Batteries here in the US.  Yes I just checked both Adorama and B&H and they are back ordered at both.  Any updates, would be appreciated.

DJI has had an issue with normal carries to get the batteries into the US because of their capacity. This should be resolved this week sometime.

Be prepared for delays. The Lunar New Year is Feb 19/20 and all of China shuts down during that time for up to a week or two. It's like an expanded version of Thanksgiving / Christmas for the US and the only time for many workers to visit their families.

Actually a lot of the factories went on Chinese New Year holiday as of the 1st and the rest go on the 13th typically thru the 25th. With Lipo's especially of this capacity there is a TON of expensive red tape to even try to air freight them into the USA, (considering most international air transport companies wont touch raw lipo batteries) then again being a Chinese company they will take the affordable route of sea cargo but their main ports (long beach, Oakland and Seattle) are all having serious labor long shorenan issues and several of our containers are being delayed up to 3 weeks as a result in port.

My best assumption is the DJI is simply telling their dealers what their freight forwarder and broker are telling them which unfortunately is worthless info until the containers are released.

I have 5 of the 5700's on order... But not expecting to see them anytime soon

Just spoke to 1uas.com regarding my TB48, they are also waiting on shipment like everyone else. Quite frustrating to have my craft a month with only one battery, but I don't blame them. Supply chain issues with these batteries are proving a real challenge!

Just placed a order at Adorama for the TB48 and no indication of it being on back order.

+1 for Copter Shop. Ordered a TB48 late on Friday and it was at my door Monday afternoon. They're still in stock, so I just placed an order for another one.
