I'll be getting my Mavic Pro in two days.  I think I read enough horror stories on the forum to really enjoy Mavic Pro when it arrives.  Are there any satisfaction stories? doesn't have to be 100% satisfaction I'll takes 90% satisfaction.

Thank you,

Loving it at 37 flights, 6.5 hours of flying time so far. The toolset is deep and there's a lot for me to learn still about advanced functionality, what works best for the kind of photography I want to take, etc.

an ultra portable 12 megapixel, UHD/4k 3-axis stabilized camera platform built for the masses?

oh, and available for right at 1K USD?

yeah, LOTS to love right here.  
the majority of DJI drones are not toys, folks need to learn their equipment, put in the time and you will be rewarded.

also, this is pretty bleeding edge consumer kit, folks need to be patient as they refine the platform and allow fixes/improvements by way of software flexibility to roll out!

satisfied!

No problems with the drone at all it has worked as expected in very severe conditions.  I have voiced my camera concern and won't say anymore, for what it is I can accept the footage, and in fact have shot what I consider to be some decent work.

Mine has been trouble free and flys great. May be a slight blurry on right side. I've been using basic auto focus and need to learn camera settings which I'm doing now.

I'm satisfied with my purchase.  It would be nice if the camera was a notch higher grade than it is but it's been a trouble free unit so far. Only a bit over 4 hours of flight time so far.

It's portable and the distance stock is better than expected. What's not to like? The thing that puts it over the top is the dji programmable modes, poi, waypoints, pano, active track. There's other software for it too.

80 plus flights in and the Mavic is simply sensational.

My only complaint about DJI is service related. Had 2 separate orders in for accessories, one despatched after waiting over 3 weeks , the other I have canceled (DJI told me via chat all items were in stock, but my order would not be despatched for another 2 weeks). That's simply not acceptable, and something in my opinion DJI needs to attend to quickly.

I'm at the 95% Satisfied column

I've logged 30 flights/5 hours 10 minutes of flight time and over 38,000 meters. I've flown higher, longer distances and got the best pictures/video with this bird than all of the previous quads I have built.
This is a good platform for the size factor.

The first drone that I have ever owned, and I am loving it! The only problem is with me not knowing enough about it!

To date, I have had not problems at all and have accumulated just under eight hours of flight time in 42 flights!
100% satisfied!

At this point, less than a month in and only a few hours of flight I would call this 95% satisfied.

I'm carefully learning to fly and exploring all the controls.  So far I've found it superior to most quads I've flown.  It has good picture quality and is well stabilized even in moderate winds.  The packaging was maybe a little excessive but it felt like you were opening a premium product.  So far it's performed like one.

I think my only point of concern is that the remote holds my Samsung G6 only without it's case and that makes me nervous.  Plus taking the case off to fly and putting it back on again when I'm done flying is a bother.  Just going to have to buy a small tablet to use when I'm flying.

98% satisfied had a problem with softness in video but hopefully it solved by changing profile and set sharpness to +1 to remove the NR.
The only thing i miss is the 60/96 FPS which is a huge disappointment. Others from that it is pure fun and love, tested all intelligent flight modes. Been flying where I had hundreds of errors with my phantom 3 without any problems nor errors, happy flying

Delighted with mine - first time drone owner and loving the toolset and YouTube rabbit holes its opened up for me to learn more.

Absolutely love the Mavic and surprised at how exciting it is to use, as usual though if you hang around the Internet forums you can get a bit overwhelmed with the negativity and moaning going on.

I'm 46 now and if you told the 10y old me this sort of thing would be possible and I'd have it one day I'd have thought you were mad (god I wish I had one of these when I was 10)

110% satisfied. Not a single issue that wasn't supposed to exist anyway. Not perfect, but insanely fun and easy to deal with.

These compact drones with real-time video and GPS and 1000K ballpark are a godsend for us hobbyists used to a lot more trouble. Trouble we love but still in R/C it's a lot more work and a lot less time flying. Now, work on these toys is fine and fun. But flying and filming is a lot more and what it's about, that's my point.

Take your time to learn, start slow and build knowledge and confidence. Be responsible. Many new pilots just rush things and then put the blame on the equipment. In R/C and hobby there's no such thing as instant gratification. The learning curve is steep, long and expensive. DJI has cut a lot of that in our favour, but still every move right or wrong has a price.

I absolutely love my Mavic.  I used the DJI Ground Station Pro App to take 90 pictures of a large area so I could create my own 'google maps' and it worked flawlessly.  I used Photoshop to stitch together all the pictures.  The video quality is superb.  I would invest in the Polar Pro filters to get your shutter speed to double your frame rate for the best cinematic filming.

I also flew mine into a tree by accident.  Sent it back to DJI for repairs and surprisingly cost me $103 and I didn't have DJI Care.  No other drone on the market even comes close to functionality and price.

It's been a great, capable little drone, and I've enjoyed learning about aerial photography. Flew it in wind, cold (within reason of course, cautiously) and found it performed at or exceeding expectation.

No jello in the video for a long time, no firmware updates have failed yet, and even when I lost signal flying it above power lines, it just flew right back within half a minute.
Steady as a rock within 30 feet of the ground, fast as all get out in Sport, and takes great photos as far as I'm concerned.

Grumpy that the plastic gimbal cover broke, but it's $11 for another one, so... no big deal. Not going to affect my flying.
