on the DJI Care Refresh purchase, I'd suggest everyone purchase as it's a really great program.
Pulled in two ways at once, just put the Mavic in your jacket pocket and take it with you to your other commitment
Fun times await you, I can promise you that.
Again, take your time to learn the entire aircraft and you'll be fine.
Looking forward to seeing your amazing photos/videos.

You are probably the only one who has a pic of their Mavic box before you even received it LOL.  Love it.  Wait for the rain to stop, go out and have a blast.
BTW if you ordered a toy like this you aren't old.

I'm not sure what to explain...  You can purchase insurance that covers your drone.  In my area, it was $36/yr with no deductible.  It's covered if it's lost, stolen, or damaged (regardless of how it's lost or damaged).  I gave the example of a bird strike over a lake, her answer: covered.  Purchase price is what you're reimbursed.

I would purchase the Care Refresh when you receive it and you'll get the code. Then months later when you activate the aircraft then use the code and it will start the program from then.
But something tells me, it's first flight would be not long at all after receiving it

been looking a these folks with the damaged gimbals,  and have noticed a lot of them show pictures, of a damaged corner on the box, and do not say anything about it,  then they shake it to get the mavic box out of the shipping box,   looks that that could really cause some damage, if the plastic cover has come off the gimbal already,  So I went and looked at mine,  and all is ok,  but  I did notice a small yellow tab,  on the top of the gimbal,  like the covers on the front sensor, but its a dark yellow,  I assume it should be removed, but have not looked at any of the instructions with it yet,   I have not seen any mention of this yet,  do you have any idea what this is, and if it is to be removed,  looks like you would need a pair of tweezers to get it out, but might cause damage if its stuck, or even if it caused damage when in use,   has me a little concerned, until I find out what it is,  Has anyone else seen this on their's...

Just a note you have to activate DJI Care Refresh within 24-48 hours of activating your brand new model. Otherwise they don't allow you to use it. Just something you should be aware of.
