    Now you have to remember that this is from a multi billion dollar company and they are sending this out to a customer (me)

    All I want is my drone fixed after their software failed.

    They should send a new replacement out immediately if its their software causing it.

    Thats the issue, they keep saying 2 things.

    1) the drone landed safely according to the logs.
    2) the drone is crash damaged and not covered under warranty.

    They are yet to officially accept that the signal was totally lost on the drone which I recorded here:

    I have been VERY disappointed with DJI's service so far. Got my P4 on Aug 11, 2 weeks later the Micro SD slot failed to hold the chip in place and I have been without the bird since then. LONG time to wait for a simple repair. They should have just sent me a brand new one. Now they've shipped it to the wrong address and I have to wait another 5 days for UPS to re direct it. It took me 5 emails to explain that I as the receiver DO NOT have the ability to tell UPS to change the address, thats up to the SHIPPER. I got many similar , "Thanks for your understanding" emails and the reality is that the only thing I understand is that DJI doesn't understand. They really need to hire a small group of English speaking customer service professionals and make a commitment to being a product in North America. I should have waited for the GoPro drone, at least I would have had a stabilized camera to use on the ground. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. And I spent the extra $300 dollars for a service plan.

    Oh, and if you're wondering why I asked the latest FW Number, was to see if I was really talking to an Tech Rep or a bot....

    Here is a tip, stick to plain English and you will get a lot further. Likely they would have no idea what you meant by "no worries", being "flushed down the toilet" ect. They will follow you pretty well if you stick to simple sentences.

    For sure, but that's hardly the point is it?

    It's precisely the point. If you want a good outcome.

    Hmmm, fair enough.

    I guess my bad for being surprised that in spite of all assurances and having taken my personal details, my case wasn't logged. And for the awesome promises of looking into it when the colleague is back when clearly they wouldn't.

    Btw, yesterday's chat was flawless, but appearances....

    Anyway, my problem is app related and I was just looking how to submit a documented bug report and got confirmation over chat this was the right place to do so.

    I phoned the UK support number when I had problems with DJI Assistant and VPS calibration. Got put through to Manila (my company has an office there, so I know the drill and we are probably on the same road near Makati too) and a lady who tried to help but I went off script. I followed her (pointless) suggestions to no avail, eventually got impatient and politely gave up.

    Not her fault, DJI are being "cheap" by farming stuff out to a call centre rather than hiring more expensive experienced techs, which given their call routing they should probably do instead.
