I pre-ordered the Spark Fly More Combo (sky blue) from BHPhotoVideo.com. I heard 3rd party resellers sometimes get units to sell before actual manufacturers have them available to sell on their own site, so I'll see how it goes. I also ordered a couple extra batteries - I know I'll need them.

I was kind of torn between getting the Spark, Mavic Pro or GoPro Karma. What led me to pre-order the Spark over the Mavic was that it had almost all the features of the Mavic, plus the hand gestures at half the price. And although I do like the GoPro Karma kit's bundled drone, Hero 5 and Karma Grip, the Spark was also around half the price and has about the same battery life and with avoidance sensors. I figured I'd go cheap (somewhat) my first time around to get familiar with drone piloting, and wait to see what the next iterations of the DJI and GoPro drones are like.

Rumor is that the Spark Fly More Combo kits will start shipping around June 30th, while just the Spark itself (in white) will ship June 15th.

Ordered my Fly More Combo May 24th and it shipped out about 3:00 am EST time, so I don't think there is a difference in shipping for either package.

Ah, but I pre-ordered my Fly More combo from BHPhotoVideo.com and not DJI. Maybe that was a mistake on my part.
Oh noooo, I hope you get yours in a timely fashion, this is my first real drone so I am very impatient haha
