    So whilst everyone around the world is still waiting for their Mavic. Casey neistat has received his replacement Mavic

    I hope he doesn't crash it soon.

    On the other hand, I'm in SFO for a short trip, anyone wants to fly at the bay bridge later?

    It doesn't fall under a NFZ in the Hover app and it isn't near any aerodome a so I'm presuming it's ok to fly.

    He was at the release so most likely he was given a priority ship code.

    Yeah, they would have been good to have gotten him a new one before he got that Karma. He seems to like the Karma for the most part.

    Or at least isn't calling it the worst drone ever quite yet at least lol

    I don't care much for him (Casey), but he has undeniably found his niche within this YouTube crap and he's making a living from it.

    It's Free advertising for DJI, so why wouldn't they send him another one quickly. 6 million followers with a link to his favorite drone, the Mavic.

    He's one of the most obnoxious people on the 'net. I couldn't even stand to watch a full video of his.

    I like Casey.... I see him for what he is.... entertainment.

    And if I could make a living doing that I would!

    Anyway.... doesn't he have to have a Part 107 FAA license?

    He never mentions it and his birds don't have FAA#'s on them?

    He is using it to further his business isn't he?

    He's worth millions, I'm sure they'll be just fine.

    Not to say he shouldn't be more conscious of the rules

    They guy works hard. Whether I like him or not is totally beside the point and no one is unanimity anyway. So I give that: he's doing it and 6M followers is huge. It's not easy to be a Youtube or whatever celebrity, takes time and sweat to even get to that level, and then you need to keep doing it better and better all the time because... well, because just like in any other job there's a line of folks willing do it even better than you and take your spot (and some will, this is a fugazzi thing the internet so the next CN might be just around the corner).

    So you gotta put A LOT of hours into everything just to be there. From making your videos (which include lots of filming then editing then promoting, etc.), to attending events and kissing tons of a$$ (some are nice, most are boring...), you need a lot of energy and will to do what he and these other guys and gals do. We only get to see the nice part which is getting free stuff and trying it well ahead of regular "us", but I'd bet he works pretty hard to make it happen!

    Because you have no idea what actually happened because you weren't there.

    You're assuming because a cop walked up to him at the end of one shot that he was told not to fly, and that it was a restricted area. Maybe he was.. and maybe it was. Or maybe the cop just wanted him to take off somewhere else where there were less people around. You don't know, so drop the holier than thou BS and get over it.

    aye most of us have at least had the thought of pushing our aircrafts beyond what we're supposed to whether we did so or not.But to be a person of that magnitude and with that degree of influence to do so and post it publicly to youtube for his followers to see isn't in the best interest of this hobby nor is it responsible.
