    Yes, mine has arrived. I have about 5 flights on it so far... anything you would like to know or see?

    Here is a shot from the 4th flight, I actually took it to a location that was interesting to fly. All other flights so far have been getting familiar with how it flies, it is different than the P3, P4, and the Inspire.

    Pros:
    Small. like smaller than I thought that it was before getting it.
    Quality, I was suspect of the folding arms, they nailed it... it is very stout.
    Quiet, it is much quieter than the P4 making missions where I probably shouldn't be flying it there slightly more covert (at least ruffling less feathers).

    Cons:
    Lack of Landing gear (or the ability to land manually) it stops about 2ft off the ground and will land automatically (I might have not discovered the setting to disable this). I found myself hand catching the Phantom series more often than not, this allowed me to take off and land in places that most others wouldn't consider flying from. I have successfully hand retrieved the Mavic, but I wouldn't call it a smart thing to do... it is more of a when I get my fingers cut up it will be my own fault kind of thing.

    The controller, I get the idea behind it... I just don't like it. It isn't as ergonomic. Forget about pinching if that is how you fly. The battery life isn't great (about 4 flights per controller charge).

    Use of phone in the controller grips... great idea, poor performance. It is like driving a sports car, a great time except for getting into and out of it. getting your device into the controller is awkward, and then you have a relatively small screen. To me DJI products are flying tripods, meant for smooth video and unique perspective photographs... why make my shot "viewfinder" so small.

    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.
