    Did you order the one from Yitamotor? That's the only one showing on Amazon.

    We would quite like to see close-up of the connectors and locking mechanism.

    I have a battery arriving as well. Ordered from Amazon and sold by yitamotor (just wish I had the Mavic to go with it:)). It's scheduled to arrive between Oct 6 and 12th. No tracking info yet but since it shipped today, It's likely to be closer to the 12th. I'll be happy to provide photos and details as well.

    Apparently not. I just received my "battery" from Yitamotor and it's actually a tiny toy quadcopter ironically called "Phantom". It came with a note explaining that they never really had any Mavic accessories in stock, so please accept this as an apology and the battery will ship whenever they get stock.

    To me, this wreaks of a ploy to have Amazon allow them to charge the customer right away since they shipped "something". I will not be doing any business with Yitamotor again.

    Wow! Of all the rotten.....

    You may be better off than where I THOUGHT your post was headed. My mind jumped ahead with the note saying, "here's your quadcopter, sorry our sale images were a little off. Pleasure doing business with you."

    Call Amazon to complain and ask for a $10 credit for you troubles.

    Amazon fully guarantees that purchases made from Marketplace resellers are as advertised, will meet delivery commitments, and will honor return policies (and if the reseller is Prime eligible then any disputes are handled by Amazon itself, the same as if the product had been sold by Amazon.) So there is no real risk in 'trusting' an Amazon reseller (and in fact I have never once had a problem with one.) In any event with Amazon's backing even if there are any shenanigans you have as much (or probably more) recourse as you'd have with any online seller, no matter who it is.

    I got the nano "Phantom" drone as well. It came with a letter apologizing that Yitamotor would not ship the battery until early November. Sending the toy drone still shoes more consideration than I have gotten on other occasions. It's nice they did something other than just apologize.

    It would have been nicer to leave the order as "pending" so that Amazon didn't charge for it right away. By marking it as "shipped", Amazon has now charged the customer for it. And now if the battery doesn't actually arrive until after 30 days, there will be no option to return it if it's defective because as far as Amazon is concerned it will have shipped over a month ago.

    Just keep a paper trail. I'm sure Amazon will be reasonable if things go South.
