    Just finished another long chat with Customer Support. They confirmed that DJI still doesn't have any stock (and haven't had any all week).

    Initially I was told that they had "no idea" when they would have more stock. When I asked if anybody there had any idea, or whether everybody was clueless, the response was "almost total clueless :("

    After persistent questioning I was told that according to the supervisor and logistics team, they are hoping for a batch of 400 late next week - but it's not for certain and they can't promise anything.

    When I asked if there was a problem with production, the reply was "maybe".

    None of this gives me much confidence.

    Given all the issues, why are you in such a rush to get one?

    Do you think it's those same issues that are the cause of the production delays?
    I've read about a few things but don't they all seem like isolated incidents?
    The latest one I saw is on one of the Facebook groups - a guy whose controller struggles for a signal within 100m.

    Oh. And what I'm saying isn't true? Why don't you step up and buy one and tell us,all about your first hand experience?

    What facts, exactly, are you bringing to the conversation that we can all benefit from?

    I have none. I'm not buying till all this gets sorted out. I'm just reading what others are saying

    True. But the difference is other products don't fall from the sky and crash and require such a high level of expent to repair. Also DJIS totally botched launch make these issues compounded

    Well then I want to read those reports. I had one on order. Cancelled it. I want one. But given the level of dissatisfaction i read about. Ill wait. I'm glad you have.not had any issues. Truly. I hope I read more positive reports. Until I do I'm on the sideline

    And some of us, at least, wouldn't mind if you waited there (on the sidelines) a bit more quietly.

    Can't agree more. We all want one that is why we are reading the forums. If everyone is on the sideline like you, you will never get one because there are no reviews.

    Back on topic, looks like Amazon storefronts are starting to ship inventory, and some have unreserved stock. I know that doesn't help pre-orders, and only compounds the pain of a pre-order delay, but it can be gleamed that units are making their way to shelves. Albeit slowly, but surely. I predict that many retailers will have a surplus stock within 2-3 weeks. Hopefully the wait times correlate to more polished firmware, end-products, and UX.
