Yeah, I never thought I would go so far but I couldn't resist and playing now with the Mavic Pro Platinum.
Must say it is fascinating to leave the ground and fly wherever you want- it's like you have filmed always in 2D and now you can go anywhere.

I purchased the Karma and a second gopro 5 camera and about every accessory. Abt a year ago along with the extra care warrenty, I have not yet had the time to even take it on it's maiden flight. Ended up in hospital etc.  It is very upsetting they have cancelled it before I could get it up. 1200+ waisted..  I will really rethink buying anything new from this company in the future.  I am hopping they will honor the warranty if I get to fly soon and hope parts will be available when needed.

Well the drone should still work and give you a couple of years of good flying. Maybe just try to snag some extra propellers etc before they are gone for good.

I would graphic props quick. They are not making them anymore.

You will be grounded permanently if you don't get on the ball.

There should exist some aftermarket props, so I wouldn't worry about that. If anything, I'd be grabbing batteries.

DJI makes good hardware but their software sucks ass and is riddled with bugs, and their support is beyond terrible. And their firmware updates are brutally bad and sometimes drastically change the product features and strip away functionality that you paid for. Feature documentation and user manuals are terrible. They are not a great company of quadrocopter
