The DJI Mavic Pro is undeniably one of the best if not the best drone on the market. It is practically DJI's most perfect drone after years of experience in the drone industry. It's light, portable and very smart. It's essentially every beginner and expert's dream drone. The only problem with it right now is that DJI seem to have troubles getting the drone to their buyers. The company is in so much muddle now that customers are starting to complain about the company's shipping failure.

DJI Mavic Pro Delay

Apparently, a bunch of consumers were hyped up by the DJI Mavic Pro and they pre-ordered as soon as the company started accepting orders. However, as it turns out, DJI may not have been ready to meet the demands for the Mavic Pro. Now, forums and comment sections are flooded by customer complaints about DJI's supposed shipment problems.

If you're one of the people who have already ordered a Mavic Pro, the best thing to do right now is to wait for shipment. DJI could soon meet the required number of Mavic Pro supply. It's just that no one knows when.

There are a small number of people saying that they already got their orders. If true, it goes to show that DJI is also trying their best to meet demands. They are just failing in quickening the process. If you're one of the people who almost bought a DJI Mavic Pro but ended up not doing so, here are some alternatives for you if you're in a hurry to purchase a drone.

DJI Phantom 4 As Mavic Pro Alternative

The DJI Phantom 4 is pretty much DJI's best drone before the Mavic Pro came out. It's actually like the new drone, the Phantom 4 is just less portable. But intelligence-wise, both drones share the same quality. If you're looking for an uber-automatic drone, the Phantom 4 is one of your best choices. It has been made to resist collisions and fly easily even in the hands of a beginner. As per DJI's website, the Phantom 4 boasts of its smart features like Tap To Fly, Sport Mode, Visual Tracking and more.

GoPro Karma As Mavic Pro Alternative

The GoPro Karma is its maker's latest product. It is portable and includes a selfie stick. It may not have all of the automatic features that DJI drones are best known for, but it still delivers the quality you'd expect from GoPro. The Karma is actually your best choice for an action drone. The best thing about it is that its camera is removable, so you can save money purchasing the drone alone and use your last season GoPro camera. As per CNET, the GoPro Karma is simplified for the novice drone users.

DJI Phantom 3 Pro

The Phantom 3 from DJI is already seasons old, which means that you can actually get it at a good deal. This drone is actually focused on photography as it comes with a 94 degree field of vision and 4K video recording. If you're all for savings, the DJI Phantom 3 is your best bet. It's got a sufficiently sized battery so you can enjoy flying it for about 23 minutes straight.
