I've been trying to buy one for some time now and it is simply out of stock (at least here in the US). Strangely, if you purchase a new M2 package with the Smart Controller, you can get it. So, their explanation is "very high demand world-wide" - frankly, not sure I buy that.

B & H recently got them in stock. I wouldn't pay much attention to people who say don't buy one unless they bought one and returned it. I'm guessing there are very few of those folks. I'm very happy with mine despite cost and current inability to use Litchi.

ergonomics of the new remote are excellent. it is simply convenient. if that convenience is worth $600 or not - that is a personal question. all i can tell for myself, well, i like it enough not to return it back, but, it would probably be a better option to buy a crystalsky unit instead, as that way i would be able to run litchi and other apps. but, i just hope that eventually it will be either fixed of hacked by somebody and then it will be perfect.

The marketing ploy of DJI to add the smart controller to the mav2 package was pretty smart. It was the tipping point for me to get the new mav and also get the controller at a better price. I think if I already had the mav2, I may have baulked at the extra purchase

And I love it....

Got mine last week after waiting two months for it. Very pleased with it, but I have the "FT Aviator" on order, and found that the FT Aviator will work with the original controller, but not with the Smart Controller. Was disappointed about that, but I still have my original MP to use with the FT Aviator.

Two things delayed them according to my large local drone shop:

1) Trump's tantrum/government shutdown which affected the FCC's ability to approve the device in a timely manner

2) Chinese New Year (DJI shuts down pretty much)

Now that both are over they are starting to show up, at least in Canada.
