    @Kestrel Not sure if you have yours or are awaiting delivery as anything delivered now should indeed be 08QDE unless it has been on the shelf for while? If you actually have it what are the next two characters? Should be a 1 or 2 followed by anything between 1 and W for the day of month.

    So far the date schema is looking good. None of the dates I have calculated from part serials fall on a weekend which bodes well.

    PS if anyone else wants to pass on their xxx characters as in the three after 08QDxxx

    ..
    it would be good. They seem to just represent a build date so safe enough to reveal IMO.

    I have owned these two Mavics
    D9T 2016 Sept 28 <== Ordered in first fewdays of release
    DC1 2016 Dec 01 <== refurb received this week

    ..and have a list of about a dozen other part serials. Need a few more xxx characters to verify it does really represent the date.

    Cool so E29 = 2017 Feb 9 so that gels. Also a week day.

    FJ at the end could mean it was the 559th built that day but just a wild guess.

    Thanks, I just got mine on Feb 16th. I haven't test it outside yet. But inside I noticed my DJI GO 4 app video feed lags and the video on the micro sd card is pixelated. I'm using Samsung note 3 and mavic has latest firmware. I set to 1080 at 30 fps and didnt clear any. I searched online, youtube, and posted in another thread about my issue no help yet.

    Try enabling developer mode and USB debugging, it helps with the lag.

    Mine is number DBR which would equate to 11/27/2016. However, 11/27 is on a Sunday -overtime?

    Ordered my fly more package from DJI on Feb 13th, I received it on Feb 23rd.

    So looks like Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 correct? Guess they are shipping these out as soon as they can make them and package them up. I'm still waiting on all my additional accessories though that I purchased with my Fly More Package.

    Thanks

    Now all we need is someone to write a online script so that users can plug in their serial numbers and know exactly when their mavic was built and if the model has any known defects like cable twisting etc.

    Won't the fact that the Chinese alphabet is different from English affect any translation attempts?

    Doubt the Chinese alphabet is used.

    The hypothetical translations are all plausible so far. They all tie in closely with purchase and order dates and I have yet to find one 3 letter combo that does not place the derived date in between order and delivery where they are known to me.

    08QDxxx ........

    YEAR
    D = 2016
    E = 2017

    MONTH
    1 = January
    2 = February
    3 = March
    4 = April
    5 = May
    6 = June
    7 = July
    8 = August
    9 = September
    A = October
    B = November
    C = December

    DAY
    (base36) (base10)
    1 = 1
    2 = 2
    3 = 3
    4 = 4
    5 = 5
    6 = 6
    7 = 7
    8 = 8
    9 = 9
    A = 10
    B = 11
    C = 12
    D = 13
    E = 14
    F = 15
    G = 16
    H = 17
    I = 18
    J = 19
    K = 20
    L = 21
    M = 22
    N = 23
    O = NOT Used as O and 0 can be confused.
    P = 24
    Q = 25
    R = 26
    S = 27
    T = 28
    U = 29
    V = 30
    W = 31


    It is seemingly a slight variation on a known Base36 calendar called RickDate
    But I am totally open to other suggestion if someone can find something else that fits.
