    at 8:45 AM i follow the link for 'free pilot training - find an event near you'

    turns out there is only space for 60 people at each event and only 24 events worldwide
    and, as expected, registration is now closed in all (except Kuwait, Kuala Lumpur)

    and at each event "one lucky participant will win a coupon for 50% off a new Phantom 2 Vision+"

    this seems like a feeble effort, imho...

    If you've been flying for a while the training won't offer much. I went to one of these this past Saturday and it's oriented towards "future" pilots and "lookers". It's about 2 hours of talking about DJI and it's products, staff will show you some equipment and demonstrate. They'll break you out in groups and let the lookers and futures fly a store Phantom 2 V+ for about 3 minutes. All of us that have been flying for a while never started up our drones. There was about 125 people at our event.

    Agreed. You're not missing much. The only thing that made the one I went to worth it was seeing the Inspire but so what. It's mostly a couple hours of marketing.

    They said it was Inspire #6. I'm sure they'll start showing up soon.
