As with everything worthwhile there is a learning curve to be expected.  After I don't count how many flights, I have dialed in the characteristics I favor for smooth cinematic results. Very happy!  Compared to my Phantom in most ways it's a dream come true. Compact, easy to fly, great IOC options, very good camera, reasonably priced. Yea.........

So far I have been happy with the purchase. This was the first drone I have ever gotten or flown. I did go back and forth between the Phantom 4 Pro and the Mavic but eventually went with the Mavic due to how portable it was. I will be using it in remote areas and when kayaking so it was tough to pull the trigger on the larger Phantom 4.

While I have not tried all the features, I am happy with what I can get out of it so far. Photos have been pretty good and a little bit of video to test the waters. Once summer gets here I look forward to getting some good content with it. Only gripe so far is the app but I have not been in a situation yet that I would be too worried if it disconnects.

I have to say I'm loving it.

I was like you, very fearful but I took it slowly, first time out with three batteries on flying.

The second time out with three batteries concentrating on getting the images correct [I was disappointed the first time but like I said, I was practising on flight].

I'm also glad I bought from DigitalRev, their service has been superb, including a damaged in transit return.

Mine is working as it should. I'd give it 100% right now. Baby steps, just flying around to get used to it. Slowly I have been trying the modes one at a time, when I understand one, I move on to another. Last thing I'll be concentrating on is the settings for the camera/video. Only thing that scared me was upgrading the firmware. I did it and everything went well.

I learned not to get tunnel vison watching the screen rather than the drone......Even though the screen said 54 ft I failed to notice it was actually descending despite what the screen says until I crashed into a snow bank. Fortunately I was on a lake and aside from the snowbank there wasn't anything to run into. Had one broken prop from where I flew backwards into the bank....

Other than that I've been happy with it.

I'd say I'm 95% satisfied.
It's a shame that all video over 30FPS is crappy. I understand why, but that limitation should be in the specification.
It's a shame that the Go 4 app on Android crashes so much. I know that the Pixel XL is not on the 'compatible' list, but heck - it's Googles own phone.
It's a shame it's raining outside, 'cause I want to be out there flying. But I don't think DJI can fix that :-)

Had mine since early December no problems at all, just make sure you understand the complexities and limitations to the RTH function and how OA works and have fun! Remover the technology is an aid to flight

I'll throw my 99% in. -1% because I had an issue trying to update the firmware. I had to install through my computer; other than that it's great.

Still, I've only got to fly it twice due to the weather, but so far so good. This is my first "real" drone, so I'm going super slow and not getting high altitudes or letting it get too far from me. But that's just because I'm not 100% confident in my skills. I'm taking baby steps and thus far have seen no hiccups. I'm happy with it, and it seems like a great drone.

I hope you enjoy your Mavic!

My mavic keep loosing signal after 3500ft ; ; Is it so much to ask for 10000ft range? ; ; spec says it has 4mile range but I'm not even getting 1mile range ; ;

I've only flown my Mavic about 20 minutes total, but so far so good. I'm too paranoid to fly much since I live near a helipad, and I can't fly in nearby national parks or state parks. :-(

Great machine so far.  I'm about 90%.  One gripe at this time, it has stopped on a RTH several times.  Would go 15 feet and stop, restart RTH, goes 15 feet and stops.  Hope this is better in the latest update, seems to be triggered by a wind warning.    Yeah, so two gripes - I know it's windy DJI, please stop telling me every 30 seconds!

Before my crash I was 90% satisfied. Mine flew perfectly, video quality was great (mine didn't seem to be blurry like some peoples). Was a little disappointed with the JPEG image quality but I hadn't played with RAW photos yet...

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.

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 think DJI is trying to play Apple...

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.

How did you get such statistic? I mean is there some logs or statistic in Mavic or app?

No issues worth worrying about so far! Have flown 33 flights - 4 hours - 20.7km. It is a fantastic machine. All these people who lose their Mavics must not be handling them correctly. Know your machine and fly it right and you shouldn't have too many problems. However, saying that, you should perhaps push the limits sometimes, otherwise you will not come up with any exciting flights/footage.
I did lose contact briefly with my Mavic on one occasion when it was 1 km away from me (lots of trees blocking signal) - but the Mavic did what it is programmed to do - Return to Home. It started making a bee-line back to me until I regained signal and took over again. It is a relief to know that it does what it's meant to do.
The compactness of this machine is one of it's best features. You can take it anywhere and have it set up and ready for flight in under a minute or so. I just love it! 100% satisfied!
