> As men get older, the toys get more expensive. - Marvin Davis Well I came to know that one of my newest toys was far too expensive since I don't even have the chance to (legally) use it. As described in my article [Hard times for drone pilots](https://steemit.com/government/@surfermarly/the-sky-s-the-limit-hard-times-for-drone-pilots-or-or-before-flying-a-drone-you-should-be-aware-of-the-legel-requirements) there are a lot of restictions regarding *droning* on Canary Islands. **This is why I finally decided to give away my still brandnew DJI Mavic Pro which I purchased in November 2017 and haven't ever used since then.** Due to the fact that we have a lot of vloggers and travellers on Steem who might appreciate having such a toy among their equipment, I thought it might be a good idea to set up an auction via @steembay. ## You can now make a bid on this drone! ![rue1agcymo.png](https://img.esteem.ws/rue1agcymo.png) Originally packaged DJI Mavic PRO # The deal **As you can see on the following pictures, all items that come with the drone are still in factory packaging.** I purchased this DJI Mavic PRO on the 17th of November 2017 via Amazon.de and paid €1.008,93 for it (= $1,170 USD), including shipment within Europe. ![bk45c6dqp5.png](https://img.esteem.ws/bk45c6dqp5.png) Considering a current Steem price of $0.66 USD, the price would be ~1,772 Steem. Supposing that it may drop a little more during the next 7 days (auction period), I'd like to estimate $0.59 USD / 1 Steem: 1,983 Steem. However, I'm pretty aware of the fact that even the drone hasn't been used, it's lost some value over time. ## That's why I'm going to start the auction at 1,500 Steem (including shipping). C'mon that's a real bargain! :-) ![8dw6osn0pn.png](https://img.esteem.ws/8dw6osn0pn.png) ![rztqbqmrvl.png](https://img.esteem.ws/rztqbqmrvl.png) ## The sky's the limit! ### Before everything else [make sure you're familiar with how Steembay works](https://steemit.com/howto/@steembay/steembay-quick-tutorial). **Also be aware of the fact that I'd ask you for a personal address where to ship the drone in case you were the highest bidder.** Bids will be accepted until cashout time of this post (in 7 days from now). > Let's see who's gonna fly high soon :-) *Much love,* Marly - **Steem Ambassador** . . . ![h8k8q6qssd.png](https://img.esteem.ws/h8k8q6qssd.png) This blog was created in July 2016, aiming to provide thought-provoking content for open-minded people who go on adventure, step out of comfort zones and embrace the new. **Thanks for being part of the journey!** ![u63vqd930f.png](https://img.esteem.ws/u63vqd930f.png) PS: All my blog posts are created and submitted via eSteem Surfer 1.1.12 - my favorite Steem desktop client that was developed by @good-karma's @esteemapp team.
