Last night I was alerted to Massdrop.com’s group-buy of the DJI Mavic Pro drone. Seeing as I’m saving $130 + no tax on the bundle (yes, I got the extra batteries and car charger and extras bundle) I decided to pull the proverbial trigger on the purchase.

As I write this there’s still another three days to get in on the bundle if you’re interested.

The way I look at it is that with the group buy I’ll get the package around a month or so after the folks that order direct. But since I don’t have something to do with it right now I’m not one to care overly much about that. I’d rather save the cash.

What I really like about the drone is how compact it is. I know I’m looking forward to using it on some of my trips — and it’s small enough to carry with me on the bike, so, bonus!
