I keep getting this crapy answer from DJI on the availability of the Smart Controller to Canada.  It is not possible to get it yet and everytime that I try to get a strait answer, they either tell me it is because of the USA Gov shutdown, wich is totally crap.  Canada gets orders from Shenzen, not USA and Canada is not on Shutdown. They other answer is worst:  THEY DONT KNOW.

It is funny because if I order the Mavic2 with the smart remote in Canada, it is available.

Please CAN someone from DJI give me a strait answer....not that corporate bull... !!!

Yeah this is pretty frustrating. I am not sure if they realize Canada is a completely different country. What happens in the USA has no bearing on receiving product here. Like you stated our product comes directly out of Shenzhen. So what is the issue here and why we cannot get an educational answer is quite frustrating.

The answer from them has been pretty consistent Smart RC has not yet passed FCC regulations, not sure how this effects Canada, outside North America it is available to the rest of the world, so it would seem ridiculous that dji would not have a serious reason for not supplying North America, so I believe there is something in what they are saying, hopefully it gets sorted soon..

I’m only telling you what Dji have said, if bundle is available it’s a bit ironic, but don’t you think with its prominent release that they would exclude its biggest customers, that would seem a little strange.

I know……...i m sure it is because of stock shortage. I just want to know from DJI when it will be available……..Im sure they have some sort of idea on ETA

Yeah lets hope so. Whats interesting is you can purchase the package deal Mavic Pro 2 and the smart controller and on my end states it will ship 1 day after payment confirmed.
Well just have to wait I guess.

Thankfully I am using this time to really think if I want to drop this kind of coin on a controller and screen.

If it would have been available on day 1, I would have purchased it out of an impulse buy.  

What DJI told me was it was due to the furlough. FCC in specific.  

Your Govt agency is the IC.  So, who knows.  Limited stock, Govt, ? ? ?  The longer this goes on makes me want this controller less..

Let me know if you guys can add third party apps? I’m assuming a side load would work ? Haven’t tried it yet.

The Smart Remote Controllers are sold out on the DJI site Canadian portal! Also sold out on the USA portal as well.
At least us Canadians had Friday, Saturday, Sunday and part of today to buy a SRC.
In the USA, it was available today and it sold out by the end of today.
Crazy!

Got mine today! Too bad the weather is horrible in Montreal.
Anyway the Smart Controller looks and feels amazing. A real quality product. Updating the new SRC firmware took about 15 minutes. Linking the SRC to Mavic 2 Zoom took less than a minute
Just realized that the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom got a new firmware update today.
I have to borrow my friend's laptop to do an assistant 2 firmware upgrade because just like before, it seems like Android devices can't do wifi firmware updates. And the same goes for the new SRC(Android based)........too bad.
I'll have to the update with USB cable on a laptop with Assistant 2.
