    Alright I bought my Mavic Pro Fly More Combo on the 28th with a shipping estimation of middle of last month. (Surprise still don't have it) however on the 10th I bought one more battery for it because why not. The battery said (and still does) that it will ship anywhere from 20-25 days after purchase. Today is day 21! I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a delay on everything Mavic or just the drone?
    I had expected to have the mavic by now.... it will kill me having a battery for a drone that I don't have yet.
    I'll get everyone updated if it ships. Thanks

    Just think about it, the world has a shortage of the basic or flymore combo. Each battery made is needed in the basic or fly more combo(3 in fact). So it would be very difficult for them to deliver a solitary battery to you at this moment while people are still waiting for their Mavics. I too have a 4th batt on order but i know i'll most likely see it late december or even in 2017

    See I would think this as well. However they haven't changed the shipping dates on any of the accessories. They say props can ship between 1-3 days. So idk if that is a joke or what

    Well there you have it. I guess they aren't telling us that either.

    Sadly I think I will be bound to one battery flying until next year sometime... Fortunately I won't be desperate for more than that until late march

    My guess is the items that day 20-25 days will have a lot more of a delay.

    I agree especially since they are (hopefully) putting all of their production capacity to filling orders until they have caught up.

    I ordered an extra 2 batteries on announcement day and haven't heard a thing on when they'll ship. I'm hoping to get them before end of year.

    ...2 weeks later (from last post)....any updates on extra batteries? I had ordered 3 extra batteries on Sept. 30th (same as my Mavic order), but only received the Mavic from Apple online. Batteries still show "Ships November".

    What about charging hub? Any word on availability...or maybe even a 3rd party/aftermarket charging hub (similar to the ones for phantoms that can charge multiple batteries and controller SIMULTANEOUSLY?

    I work for Apple in south Florida and we started receiving the Mavics in store. Got one myself yesterday. We did also receive some propellers but unfortunately no batteries. I would suggest checking your local Apple store to see what they have!

    It seems to me that the battery shortage is probably what has caused the bulk of the delays.
