Hi, thanks for reaching DJI Forum. We do appreciate bringing this query to us. Together with channel partners, DJI evaluates the aircraft’s, handheld gimbal products’ as well as accessories’ product strategies and pricing system on a regular basis. This reasonable price adjustment will provide customers with a sustainable quality experience. After the price adjustment, if you want to purchase extra batteries, propellers, chargers, and portable bags, the Fly More Kit is still the ideal budget choice.

This is ridiculous seems that DJI doesn't have good pricing strategy/policy. But we will definitely have "sustainable quality experience" for 60 EUR difference.

Wow.  this is terrible.  $119 for the battery is already borderline offensive pricing, then bumping that price up even further? Bad move DJI

I wonder if it is a reflection of tariff increases unilaterally set by current USA government ?

BS response and BS price increase.  I guess I will hold off on those extra batteries now.

Not your fault Admin, but feel free to pass along our discontent.

This post needs to blow up. This is a slap in the face to people that want to upgrade their drones that they just shelled 12-1400 dollars for.

I agree.  This is really insulting.  Especially since it looks like all the price increases are just for the mavic 2

"STRATEGY"

Sales: Mavic 2's and accessories are flying off the shelves.

Leadership: Oh crap, we should have charged more.

Communications and Marketing: Maybe they won't notice if we put a larger price next to the increased actual price.

In defense of DJI(and I can't believe I just said that sentence).

They have always listed the Flymore Kit as costing more and that it was on sale for $319. I can't say the same about all of the other accessories that went up in price though.

I think same way too, since the people are grabbing every new model again and again and grow up their fleet

I don't know why they would release the Combo at 1 price and then raise it on the other hand days/weeks later?

Either the numbers run were done wrong, or what? Somebody screwed up?

Thank goodness I purchased the Fly More Kit when I did!!

I am almost certain this price increase is due to the tarrif. Pass the hike to the customers. But then again, EVERY business does this.  **Shrugs**

If it was due to the tariff, the increase would just be for the US and not worldwide...

Luckily my kit is already here.

Glad I ordered three extra batteries the night before the price increase!

This sounds more like a cash grab because demand is higher than they forecasted than someone didn't have the profit margin figured correctly.

Maybe if DJI could first fix the bugs (soft footage on m2P, way too warm colors, no precision landing, no atti mode - i know that's not a bug but still, Crystal Sky compatibility) and after that adjust prices, maybe that would be more understandable? Bad move imho.

Maybe they are doing it Worldwide to offset the Tarrif AND do some price gouging (supply in demand)???

I honesrly don’t know and I doubt we will ever know.  

It just SUCKS!!

You can't use the vouchers for M2 equipment anyway. They only apply for 'old stuff'.

Yes I realise that, that’s how I discovered of the price hike,€20 on a battery,and €60 on the fly more kit, it’s more like see the bigger price, than see the bigger picture, don’t get me wrong I like DJI they make excellent products and I love there drones, but a price increase within 3 weeks without saying anything, if there was a price drop we would have got a notification of some sort, not good enough

This has nothing to do with any tariff. That is why DJI raises their prices in all their markets- not just the United States. It’s just DJI being a sneaky unethical Chinese company. Could you imagine Apple suddenly raising the price of a product a couple weeks after it was released? Obviously not.

"Could you imagine Apple suddenly raising the price of a product a couple weeks after it was released? Obviously not. "

Give them time, if the tariffs continue they will have little choice in the matter:-

I tried to order extra batteries with the Drone, but they weren't in stock (even shortly after launch). Now with this price hike, I'll wait. I think it's an issue of supply verses demand and that the prices will (hopefully) regulate when the demand settles down. Certainly when the 'next' thing comes out and eyes are turned away from the Mavic 2, the prices will drop. Until then, I'll fly for 30 minutes at a time. I don't usually fly longer than that at one time anyway.

Bad company practice, that's for sure.

FWIW: with all respect to DJI, don't buy the flymore kit. I just received mine today.  Yes, I calculated that the bag was inexpensive when I tallied up the components cost individually vs this kit, but I wish I hadn't even wasted $40 on this bag. I guess I'm the fool because I bought it without any real information about the pack (no info available on the website or at B&H).  I thought I was buying a smallish backpack (with all the accessories).  What you actually get is a tiny bag that has inconvenient pockets, not enough room to store the Mavic 2 Pro with the props installed, (barely enough room for the Mavic Pro 2 even with the props removed), and a terrible divider system that buries the batteries in the bottom of the bag (requiring you lift a panel to get to the batteries).  There is literally no room for the charger (unless you don't mind crushing your gear together), no room for the 4 way charger, no room for the prop guards, and a lousy location to store extra props that could bend them over time.

Not only all of the above, you are expected to jam your M2P into a way-too-tight space, nose down on an un-padded bag bottom.  there is literally no padding around the M2P, and it is locked in place by a bag that is too small, so any crush or hit to the side of the bag will directly transfer that impact to the M2P.

I hope DJI lets this post stay as a service to its clients.

This bag really is a misstep by DJI.  Look elsewhere if you are looking for a pack tol take good care of your  investment..
