Hi all.

I will come to China in June 5.
I would like to ask if I need to order the Spark before coming to Shanghai store  and how to do it?
what is the price in Shanghai  for Combo pack? and for Spark alone?
what is the chance that I will come to the store and they will be out of stock with Spark Combo/Spark
or even Mavic Pro?


Thanks!!!

Why not order one from DJI's Chinese online shop?

I went to the Shanghai DJI store today at Xintiandi looking for the Spark.  Unfortunately they told me the first shipment of the Spark was quickly sold out and that I can only preorder now, and don't have an ETA on availability.  I watched a demo flight using the hand gesture control and left DJI determined to find it in stock.  I made a beeline to XingGuang photography market to talk to one of the bigger authorized DJI sellers there and they said they won't be expecting any for at least a month.  Before I left I jumped onto Taobao and succumbed to paying an extra 400 on top of the 3200rmb to get mine in a couple days max.  

Unless your trip is going to leave you in Shanghai for a month and a half, I wouldn't put a preorder in now.  Best way to get it is on Taobao if you can find a seller charging a premium for stock from the first shipments.  .....Or you can pick up a Mavic Pro.  I saw at least 4 people buying the fly more set from the 15 minutes I was in the DJI showroom.  Pricing for spark and mavic in the DJI store is same as on their site.  https://www.dji.com/cn

New tech and the scammers are trying to separate people from their money.  The reason I'd only order something like this from DJI or a reputable vendor (Amazon.com).

Thanks for the reminder.  The park I've been flying around is just right inside edge of the height restriction zone radius of hongqiao airpot.  I will have to move east just one km to get out of the height restriction.  Too bad I can't move the park 1km east!

I live at Jiangsu Rd/Yan'an West Rd, near Zhongshan Park, about one or two km west to the height restriction zone border. The NFZ is really inconvenient.

FFS, I just saw the NFZ update.  It's an elongated shape now, instead of a circle.   I'm still just right outside of the border, but the park I like is totally engulfed in it.  Sigh.

You're in a great spot though,  completely outside.  I want to try Zhongshan park, but I have a feeling it is a place where drones go to die; too many kite traps!   Would be great to capture footage of a kite flying 200meters up in the sky though.  I'm not brave enough to try it!

I haven't got my hand on Spark yet. But I doubt I ever dare to fly it over a large crowd there. Not to mention the police wouldn't be so forgiving. I think I'll try it at some garden around the corner, where there are not so many people.
