    I ordered the Drone on Sep 27. It shipped Oct 26.

    I ordered the 6-filter set on Oct 25. Haven't gotten a shipping notice yet, but I wonder which will get here first.

    It's not going to be much of a race since PolarPro is not shipping until the end of November. See more details on their website here.

    It still may be. My drone may still be a ghost, considering the whole order disappeared yesterday to the point even Amazon could not find it.

    If it actually shipped, you should have a tracking number. That's a better indicator of the package progress than Amazon since they didn't ship it. For my order, Amazon didn't show it as delivered until about 24 hours after it was delivered.

    My whole order disappeared, no record. Yes, I have a tracking number now as well. But still... Until it is in my hands...

    I had a tracking number from Newegg via DJI marketplace, and then two days later it showed invalid. Had to reauthorize my payment, now my order is on its way

    Ordered the PolarPro 6 pack, still waiting on my Mavic. Also for those who have not ordered, this promo code worked for me FALLFLIGHT10, saved $9.

    How essential is it to get the 6 pack vs 3 pack?

    The PL filters in the 6-pack will help reduce the glare if you fly over reflective surfaces (e.g. water). The ND32 filter would be useful if you fly in very sunny/bright locations. If neither of those scenarios apply to you, then you could probably get away with just using the filters in the 3-pack.
