People who have pre-ordered from DJI have received the following email:
Dear DJI Inspire 1 Customers,
We know everyone is excited to receive your new DJI Inspire 1 and would like to share the following information with you:
• The Inspire 1 will start shipping at the end of December. Shipments will be prioritized with those who ordered first receiving their units first.
• A convenient carrying case will now be included with all orders, no matter you ordered from DJI or DJI official dealers. This case has been customized to fit your Inspire 1. (photos attached)
• The final stages of testing have proven all of the Inspire 1’s features perform well in a wide variety of environments.
We appreciate your patience and support!
Thank you, DJI
And here are pictures of the case. Looks pretty sturdy.
This is an interesting development and a good move by DJI. A carry case has got to be worth around £150 to £200 and so will be a good incentive. I'm not sure that case makers will be too pleased though.
A question was raised whether this was only for people who pre-ordered. A user over at rcgroups asked a DJI rep directly and the reply was:
"A convenient carry case will now be included with all orders, no matter you ordered from DJI or DJI official dealers"
