    I'm an impatient sod so I was just hoping to find out how long I can expect to wait until DJI ships my order. I ordered a P3P last Wednesday, the site said "ships in 3-5 working days" and it's passed that mark now! Do I phone DJI and ask? How long did it take for your P3P orders to change to "shipped"?

    I hope it's soon because I'm moving out soon! :p

    Cheers!

    I purchased mine off eBay from a liscensed DJI Reseller on Tuesday, received it here today (2 days later). My 2nd battery is estimated to come in late May or early June.

    Thanks Nick, that's a pretty decent time. I wonder how DJI fares in comparison

    I ordered my P3P last Sunday, 17 th May from DJI so let me know when you get yours!

    I have a Phantom 1 that I flew a lot back in 2013, but kind of gave up shooting photos and video since I didn't have a FPV setup on it. Didn't fly it at all in 2014. Just fired it up Monday and have flown it 4 nights in a row now. Don't have the camera on it, but I have been getting stick time on it while I wait for DJI to ship mine.

    Likewise please let me know when yours is shipped! :) I'll post here when mine is shipped!

    I wish I had something to fly in the meantime, I'm going crazy in anticipation!

    If you guys can still cancel your orders, the place I bought from still is in stock and ships within 5 days to anywhere in the US.

    Granted I don't know how long ago you guys ordered. I think there are people who ordered in April and have yet to receive theirs though.

    I just had a quick chat via the online chat help desk, it seems they estimate another 1-2 working days yet before they ship mine. Also just noticed I didn't actually order on Wednesday, I ordered Sunday 17th like you did. Not sure how I managed to miss that, it's been a long week!

    Thanks though I'm in the UK!

    1-2 more working days won't be to bad. Well it will still be quicker than my wait for the iPhone 6 plus when I ordered it from Verizon wireless. That was a month and a half....

    True, though it's still another 3-4 days in total given that it's the weekend and that's assuming the support rep was telling the truth!

    Strange... I ordered a P3 on May 7th direct from DJI and was told shipping in "Mid May". I contacted them on the 15th (Mid May) and they said 2 weeks "or more"....Still shows "pending" in the order......

    Oh dear that doesn't bode well...
    Did you order a Pro or an Advanced?

    Been so long, I almost forgot when.
    Actually it was on April 25. Same day of the Edmonton DJI First Pilot Experience. I ordered my P3 Pro', right after the event. So it's drawing close to one month. Wish I had ordered it when they were very first announced, and I would probably be flying right about Now!!

    It may be better that we wait, and that way, they at DJI Headquarters can update the firmware and other stuff... Thanks.

    I ordered Advanced W/Extra battery.... I just wish I would have known it wasn't going to arrive when promised, as I would have pushed a shoot out or gotten other equipment going. This was the answer to those questions (fix or new) when I ordered... Now there is not enough time for plan B..

    As it is, it is going to leave me in a bind unless it ships very quickly. And even with that, assumes llittle time for "getting to know" a new bird... Only so much I can do off line..

    *sigh*

    Ouch, so when you guys ordered what estimate did it give for when it would be shipped? Did it still say 3-5 days like it does now or did it estimate a little longer? I ask because the P3As shipping time has recently reduced to 5-7 from something like 10-15 days

    When I ordered on May 7 it said "Mid May". When I emailed in Mid May they said "10-14 days" apparently from that time.... When I emailed back asking for clarification they said "10 days to 2 weeks or longer" In the end, no estimate at all...

    After much thought, I am going a different route.

    As long as I have to wait till June, I will order the Solo. The gimbal for that won't come until later in June, but I can get to know the new system with the fixed mount untill then, and at least 3DR is up front about the delay for the gimbal before I order. I also have an option for a free battery if I wait for the gimbal. In any case, They have a "30 day return with no questions asked" policy for the whole setup, and a complete fly away gaurantee, with much better service.

    I'm one deep breath away from doing just that. If you tell me it's going to ship in "3-5 days" that's what I expect. I am not happy seeing them change that to 5-7 days because I have no reason to believe even that's honest.
