Hi Everyone,


A week and two days ago, on January 22nd, 2017, I saw the 3-5 day shipping guarantee after payment confirmation (which happened immediately), on the DJI website and was shocked and very happy to see that shipping issues must have been resolved.  I quickly ordered a Mavic Pro and Care Refresh and waited patiently for the next few days, until that Friday (6-7 days after I ordered.  


When I saw that the package hadn't been shipped, I opened a chat line to the pre-sales representative.  She told me that the Mavic would ship on the 29th of January.  First strike: DJI does not fulfill 3-5 day shipping guarantee.  


I then waited until the 29th.  Upon seeing that it hadn't shipped then, I opened another line to DJI Customer Care.  Second strike: DJI does not ship on the date they provided.  
I spoke with Sarah for one full frustrating hour, just trying to find out the recommended date when the drone would ship.   She said that it would ship January 30th.  


It is now night of the 30th, and still no fourth blue dot.  Third strike: DJI did not fulfill their backup date provided.  This is seeming a lot like a sham.  Let me make it clear that I ordered the Mavic then specifically because I had a film class project that would be due on Feb. 3rd, 2017.  Now, it looks like I will not get my footage, and get a bad grade on the project, all because of a fake guarantee from DJI.  


The false advertising needs to stop.  It is immoral and an embarrassment for a major, industry-leading company to be treating its customers like this.  I don't see Apple, Samsung, or Sony treating their customers with fake shipping guarantees and false advertising.  


No offense, but the customer service was incredibly unhelpful, and I would like to see a change in the forums.  I have heard good reports of DJI Natalia and Ken, and would love it if one of them (or another moderator) would escalate my issue as I need the drone shipped within 2 days to get a good grade on the project.  Thank you for your time, and I hope one of the moderators can reflect properly on their company.

Thanks, and I am pretty sure I didn't order it  on the holiday week, because there was a 3-5 day shipping guarantee.  I am just very sad and a bit frustrated that they broke their own guarantee.

understand,  I also am not sure of your 3 to 5 days shipping,  in the past,  I have seen them say after payment is confirms,  witch can be a day or two,  and   the 3 to 5 days  is work days,   and depending where you are in the world,  you could also have another  day of time loss there,   hope it gets solved soon,    if you have a  order number,  maybe  dji Ken or  Mindy can help you out,,

My payment confirmed within 5 minutes of purchase.  The 3-5 days was business days, but since I ordered 9 full days ago, 5 business days (Monday through Friday) passed between then and today.  I will post my order number above.  Thanks for helping!

Just a quick did you order just Mavic on its own or did you order combo or any other accessories. Also payment confirmed would not be payment cleared, that could take a couple of days , also it's new policy for dji to to not take money from your card until your order is ready to ship.
Hopefully it will ship soon. Good luck..

while it is an important part of the creative process to "think outside the box", any creative that is making a living with their craft will tell you it is critical to "work inside the box".  Go crazy with your ideas, but you have to be able to realize them with the tools on hand.  To blame DJI for not delivering on a hard deadline (even if it is for school) is amateur and irresponsible.

DJI is guilty of crappy delivery and over promising.  But the inability to complete an assignment (or job) is on you.

With all respect, there are literally thousands of replies to multiple posts about the delays in shipping and the fact that the shipping estimates are woefully out.

I would make alternative plans for your project as you may well be waiting another 2-3 weeks....

I have a video cam; the teacher needed someone to do an orbiting clip of the flag, and the only way to do that is with a drone.

Bent Kangaroo, you have been harassing users all the time, such as WINGS, etc.  It would be great if you could leave me the heck alone and get on with your life.  If you are complaining about this, you should just leave the forums because this won't stop by users until DJI stops falsely advertising.  

Please Leave the thread.  Thanks.

lol,  yes yes only WINGS, not "users all the time" you drama queen. And it was deserved, pity you cant read that thread now , it too was sent to the dustbin, just like this thread should be.

If it is called harassment to call DJI to close or prevent these whiney threads, then ok, call it want you want.
Please DJI re-word your website.

Look at the title of this thread.
Demanding the Forum moderators take care of your order and attributing your failed projects to a few day delay in shipping is not what these forums are for.
Got a problem with your mavic? Discuss it here. Got some technical issues or questions? Ask it here in the Mavic forums.
Got a delay in shipping, start a thread and blame DJI for your failed commitments...oops, i mean no, dont start a thread and clog up our forum with special treatment requests.
Dont like my opinion in this public forum, i guess your already busilly contacting the mods, but bad luck. I dont think you have the correct permissions to stop someone from commenting in these types of threads.

I fully understand your frustration. Add 5 - 7 working  days and your Mavic is at your door. DJI lost some goodwill last 4 months. Once the remote is in your hands you forget all the trouble. I hope DJI will make it up with their customers and third parties.

It's not payment cleared but rather payment authorised, if your in this class maybe someone will lend you one.
It will, be there in no time, and will last you for years. Good luck

seriously?  imagine how that explanation would go over if you failed to meet a client deadline b/c you promised a shot based on gear you didn't have?

i know your ticked at DJI, & we all get it.  It sucks that they didn't deliver in the timeline they quoted... but grow a pair and take some responsibility.

Guess what?  I am not doing a job.  This is at a school, and the teacher is much more understanding than you all.  You talk about "growing a pair" even though you are the one who sits on his computer all day browsing these forums out of some nerdy obsession with computers.  I'll bet you don't compete in any sports, activities, or competitions.  All you do is sit at the computer all day like a nolifer.

Try husband, father (both of my kids know to take responsibility for their poor decisions), owner of a respectable creative content agency, and gravel road racer.

I come here to learn from people who know more than me about quadcopters/cinematography. but every time the ratio of people who get stuff done vs. people who complain about the same stuff over & over again gets out of wack... I loose a little self control and call people on the carpet for it.

Sorry to offend. I'll leave you to finger pointing, name calling and other adult behavior.

Haahahhaha, it is your fault for buying the mavic so early on.  You bought it when it said 8-16 weeks shipping.  I bought it for 3-5 day shipping.  Best Buy doesn't have a P4 in stock.

I like this bit  ... " that is not a complaining thread. That is only informational. "

You come in here having a temper tantrum, calling everyone names and insulting them, even DJI, and then wonder why people are not very friendly.
" Glad my teacher's not a kid like you."
" you should just leave the forums because this won't stop by users until DJI stops falsely advertising. "

" I don't know what poor soul would possibly live with you. "
" You are more childish than my 17 year old sister. "


And this takes the cake  " Haahahhaha, it is your fault for buying the mavic so early on. "




DJI in your view are running a sham and fake guarantee and false advertising, all according to your initial post.

" This is seeming a lot like a sham. "

You blame DJI for bad grades.

" Now, it looks like I will not get my footage, and get a bad grade on the project, all because of a fake guarantee from DJI. "



More demands and silly claims....


" The false advertising needs to stop.  It is immoral and an embarrassment for a major, industry-leading company to be treating its customers like this. "
" No offense, but the customer service was incredibly unhelpful, and I would like to see a change in the forums. "
" would love it if one of them (or another moderator) would escalate my issue as I need the drone shipped within 2 days to get a good grade on the project. "
" I am in cinematography class, trying to explain to my teacher why I haven't started. "
" Actually, it is DJI's fault for making false claims and misleading people into thinking they can get the drone soon. "


I think you need to chill a little and understand how the real world works.
