    Just flew it in the hallway - works a treat. Camera seems to be in focus, gimbal is fine from what I can tell.

    Top tip and a small scare for me - don't leave it sat on the sofa doing a firmware upgrade! It got more than a little hot and stopped responding after the reboot - had to wait for it to cool down. Looks like the air gets pushed out of the bottom - whoops... All fine now though.

    Hadn't seen the thundersnow reports. That sounds like it could be fun over the next few days

    Well it's still showing as delivery tomorrow, so must be coming via plane (or rocket).

    Not getting too excited after the build up last time.

    Well okay, can't wait!

    It's current location sounds like some sort of preflight check joke amongst pilots :)

    If UPS say its being delivered tomorrow then there's a strong possibility it will be. I notice its UPS Express rather than the usual UPS Standard.

    UPS Standard is fairly quick - but UPS Express has two rockets and a go faster stripe....

    Ah, not too far.
    I'm in Yeadon, right by the airport.
    A perfect location for a Mavic

    Yup, comes through the front behind the gimbal when flying and likely out the bottom as you described so sitting it on a couch will do it haha.

    If you could keep me updated I would appreciate it, I ordered the fly more combo from Wex on the 1st of November and still haven't received it or any estimated delivery date. Twice I've phoned them which both was very recently and both times I've never received any estimated delivery date, in fact the responses I had was rather blunt that im in a queue and when it's my turn we will email you.

    If you have any updates It would be great thanks

    ordered mine on 30th from DD and nothing! estimated delivery is now 3rd Feb. tempted to bin them off and buy direct but just realised they have already taken the money!
    Will wait till 3rd and if I still don't have it I'll go through the b&%l ache of getting a refund and buy direct at the extra money!

    Well I spoke to them last week on chat and they advised end of the month. I then tried my luck again a couple days later when that email from DJI came out and was told middle of this month.

    I thought I'd try again earlier tonight one two occasions, once kidding on I was going to buy today and the other with my order number. I was told on both occasions the end of the month.

    I don't know what to believe but I'm hoping it's next week at the latest. I'll let you know.

    I've purchased from Wex also and been also told middle of this month, would go elsewhere but I have bought at original price for the Fly more bundle so don't want to pay the extra price increase.

    Just received an email from TTUK the claim "no Authorised Suppliers within the UK yet have these items. They have not yet been released, aside from a few from DJI directly. This matter is as infuriating to ourselves and you are of course entitled to cancel in hope of obtaining elsewhere, but once stock is released in the UK we will market at the new inflated RRP and Fly More Bundle will no longer be available"

    Does that mean Maplin aren't Authorised supplier ?
