    With the eminent arrival of the first wave of Mavics according to the 75 page "who's going to get theirs first" thread" - another event looms on the horizon. Who will be the first to crash this newest flying machine? This thread is for you. (Neistat doesn't count - he didn't wait in line like the rest of us). Remember - there can only be one #1. In a perfect world - this would be the one and only entry for this thread. Fly safe. We'll see.

    Looks like he doesn't know how to power in the drone or controller. It's suppose to be press button, release, press again and hold for a couple seconds.

    Nice enough guy but ya know what...the first few should goto pilots that have already begun to eat/sleep/breathe the Mavic. Not gonna fly this "THING" right now??? HUH???? Read the posts in this forum buddy. Pilots would give anything to be the first to unbox. Feel lucky!

    He's from Vancouver, it's been wet for like the last two weeks here. If anything he's being responsible.

    Well on the poll "is this your first drone"... over 50% said yes.... so my bet is 50% will crash at least once.... who will be first, whatever person (like the guy above) is in that 50+%....

    Standard practice, wife reads the manual, husband 'wings it'. You'd think anyone interested enough would download the manual and then read it whilst waiting for the Mavic to arrive. Now he'll doubtless complain about the focus, just like the folk who complain how difficult it is to get P3 props off, because they've not read and understood the manual.

    I've read it a couple times, and I'm sure that many have every detail memorized.

    I can't believe that it is thicker than the iPhone 7. I am cancelling my order right away.

    Do the 2-3 You Tube Videos that have been posted where one person clips a tree and another hits a structure not count?
    Does there have to be video evidence posted?
    Does it count only if the Mavic is disabled by the crash ? The videos out there show the Mavic recovering from crashing into trees and structures.

    I say if it falls TO THE GROUND, it's a crash. If it recovers it is not.
