As i expected....The Inspire 1 wont make it for Christmas, nor Newyears!. I purchased mine from Dronefly.com , and they actually called me today(nice touch) to say , DJI called them and said the earliest they can expect to see the first batch of units will be "early January" Dronefly is concerned is about promising that time period also because it is the third release date change since it was announced initially. I work in the automotive repair field and I understand delays in build and design are inevitable. It must be a serious design issue or a problem with product yield. Ohh well, the free case best be worth it! They have had my $3100 since November, gaining interest! Ill be patient...... Is it here yet?? how bout now?
