    I walked through the local Apple Store JP after seeing here that was so effective in USA, but no stock. You're lucky to be holding one. Gifu-shi or somewhere else in Gifu-ken?

    Greetings!

    I am planning a trip to Okinawa in Feb and I am wondering how are the drone laws like there?

    I ordered a little while ago through an Amazon JP seller and their estimate is 15 December. Maybe shipments will improve. I am too busy at work this month to enjoy it anyway, but I can plan my springtime accordingly.

    Hello, I'm in Yokohama, Japan near Tokyo. I got my mavic last night in the mail and haven't been able to sleep since I unboxed it.I'm just too excited. (I love that mail gets delivered even on Sundays in Japan.)
    Anybody know of any FPV googles currently available that will work well with mavic pro?

    I bought my mavic on US eBay. It's available on Japan Yahoo Auctions too, but I decided to get the US model because I heard that the European model mavic pro has a much shorter distance range due to European aerospace regulations. So knowing that Japan is much stricter in some areas than other countries, I decided to buy my mavic from outside of Japan. That way I can get the full piloting experience with my mavic. I also bought a spare mavic intelligent flight battery on Japan Yahoo Auction last night. Now I'll have a total of 4 batteries for my mavic.

    This weekend I'm going to Taiwan and plan to take my mavic with me. Do any of you know the drone regulations for Taiwan?

    From next month, I plan to start going to Gunma to fly my mavic once a month or so. If any of you guys in Kanto area want to get together let me know and we can meet up.

    My estimate was 15 December, finally arrived on the Emperor's Birthday (23 December). Given all the other threads about October orders still outstanding, I will count my blessings and prepare for a springtime all around central Japan.
