Supply Catches Demand? DJI Mavic Pro Ships Within a Week After Long Delays
DJI Mavic Pro shipping

Another day, another announcement out of DJI on the Mavic Pro. Last week saw the ship date finally compact into a 7-10 business day window. Today, it’s now within 5-7 business days. It’s not quite the 1-3 business days other DJI products have, but the company is clearing its excessive backlog of preorders. It’s welcome news for those that first ordered the ultra-portable drone when it was announced last year. Now we can expect plenty of aerial footage and photos that are sure to amaze.

Those who have held off on being stuck in preorder purgatory can now expect the Mavic Pro to arrive within a week or so. Customers still waiting on their preordered Mavic should have their orders cleared by January 18th. Good news for the company that is recovering from intense demand, a manufacturing slip up and the GoPro Karma recall.

The three events added up to a perfect storm of demand far outstripping supply. Here’s the latest from DJI on the Mavic Pro.

Maybe not on the same level as the Phantom 4 Pro, but you can’t deny the portability aspect of the Mavic Pro. And the camera is nearly on par with the Phantom 3 Pro and 4 but has the increased range found in the top tier of DJI’s line of drones.

Here’s hoping in the next couple of weeks DJI gets the ship date down to the standard 1 to 3 days. Pricing remains the same for the Mavic Pro – $999 for the RC-package and $1299 for the Fly More Combo.
