DJI Mavic Delays? -Nobody is ever on time




DJI mavic delays

There are so many people online complaining about DJI Mavic delays. Some of them are canceling orders, others just going online to bash DJI. This kind of behavior is to be expected, as people paid 1000 bucks for the thing. But let’s take a step back and think about why these delays are happening.

Why do we see so many complaints about DJI Mavic delays?

The answer is very clear:
1. The DJI Mavic got many more pre-orders than any other drone to date (probably).
2. For many people, this is their first drone, and they don’t really know what’s going on in the industry.

What’s going on in the drone industry?

Shipping for almost every done is getting delayed. In the drone industry, it’s a common situation. It’s not only about DJI Mavic delays. We Talk UAV’s office ordered a Hover Camera drone on October 14th. The following Monday, we got notification saying that we need to wait 1-3 more months.

Here’s a list of drones that have been delayed recently:

  1. Of course, the DJI Mavic.
  2. The Yuneec Typhoon H (no Realsense) shipping was delayed for few months.
  3. The Typhoon H with Realsense was also delayed for almost 2 months.
  4. The GoPro Karma was supposed to be shipped on Oct. 23rd, but it’s still not out
  5. The Hover Camera has been delayed 1-3 months.

Moving out of the drone market:

  1. The brand new mirrorless Canon M5 delayed shipping.
  2. Apple has delayed AirPods.
  3. iPhone 7 shipping has been delayed.

Why do they always delay shipping?

Manufacturers are just taking their time to complete products, make them more polished, complete the firmware, and fix some bugs. However, it’s ironic that almost any high tech product is usually full of bugs that are getting fixed after couple with firmware updates. Also, announcing a shipping time that is earlier than they can deliver is a clever marketing trick. Since we were kids, our parents were teaching us that arrive on time is a good manner , and being late is impolite, but they forgot to mention that in technology world it’s completely different and nobody is ever on time.

And as always, thanks for reading!
