I have pre ordered a Mavic
and am very close to the front of the waiting list but I am not expecting it before the first of November at best. If you order now you may not get delivery
till December at best. Lots of online discussion about them not being here till after the first of the year unless you ordered early. Keep in mind that both the Phantom and Mavic are dji products and some folks advise to buy from an official dji vendor to avoid any warranty issues. Ask the vendor before you buy.
I have a Splash as well and have been very unhappy with it.
I'm also thinking of placing an order for a Mavic, looks ideal for the small confines of a boat, as far as storage
goes. But also an amazing amount of technology in such a small package.
I've thought about getting a Splash for a while but your comment above is quite typical from other owners from what I've seen.
One of main concerns with the Mavic is the lack of landing gear
to be able to catch it, which is probably easier than trying to land it on a moving boat.
On a side note, I checked with my insurance
and they confirmed the drone will be covered under personal effects if flown from the boat 😀
