I'm trying to remember last time in the history of western civilization when the demand for a particular product was that insanely huge. Pre-orders, thousands waiting in-line for months, DJI factories desperately trying to copy with production and delivery issues (at the cost of quality control, undoubtedly), post-sale service issues etc.? After all this is a luxury item, a toy, not a matter of survival. A very fine toy - I must admit - but still ... Is this social phenomenon somehow related to the behavior of "selfie generation", iPhone addicts unable to live without?

Or - perhaps - everything is going on just fine, leaving lone sceptics like myself in the dust of misinterpretation? Accordingly to the overwhelming spirit of this noble forum, the world is about to collapse under the weight of unresolved drone issues ... Yes, I'm aware of the statistics: only a handful of troubled pilots cries here, the majority of happy ones doesn't show up. That's not the problem. The number of these "found under Christmas tree" Mavics and Phantoms is ...

The most scary part of my late night thinking is the fact that not a single American or European company is able to come-up with equally well engineered drones and maintain the same price range. Therefore the slogan "Let's make America great again" seems to me as a dream within mission impossible category, Sir ...

Everyone needs to blow off a little steam now and then Dobby .  Just go to your bedroom  window ( In the middle of the night seems to work best  )  open it wide ,   and scream , 'I AM MAD AS HELL AND I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE "  then  shut  the window and go to sleep  .  You will be surprised how much better you feel in the morning ......works for me anyway

No, Brother Donnie ... I'm not mad at all or frustrated, I don't need to vent. I'm rather sad ... a bit frightened maybe? How is it possible, what's happening? Why we must wait in-line for a luxury item so brilliantly developed and manufactured in China? And how - in the name of God - we still have money to pay for it ??!!!

Oh, well ... I'm listening to "One Love" by Bob Marley, contemplating a soon-to-be-legal marijuana ... everything seems to be OK now ...
