DJI support was great for me, The hold times are long but they replaced my quad at no charge in the end, took about 15 days. Usually only people who complain write reviews.

Yet in the review:
"...we would advise users to ensure the drone itself, the physical controller and the iOS app are all updated to the latest versions before taking to the skies."
A firmware version would help the community narrow this down. 3.06 has some dropping out of the sky due to a bug.
No post-stabilization. It really is that smooth.
I was following the intel on these drones for over a year now just waiting for my opportunity to strike and buy one of my own. I've been pretty patient I think and after reading stories about this one since what.....April? I have seen a lot of crashes and failures and most of them were the result of flying before GPS kicked in (at least so it appears).
After waiting for so long, I couldn't take it anymore. I was reading CNet's coverage (can't find the link) and it pulled me in, then watching videos on youtube left and right...pulled me in further. I read Poc's review (http://pocinc.net/blog/product-reviews/review-dji-phantom-vision-2-quadcopter-drone) which pulled me all the of the way in. Needless to say, I broke down and finally bought one.
By the time I came across your review, I had already ordered it, but I can now say that I love it. I have been playing with it for some days now and I haven't crashed it yet (knock on virtual wood). I'll follow-up on any troubles I come across though.
It won't let me post
Tis broken *knock knock*
The camera/gimbal setup on the Vision + is very poorly designed. I've had broken cables out of the box. And just as you experienced, I had a slightly heavy landing and the camera falls off the gimbal and is trash. Currently the cost of replacement is around $700 since the ribbon cable is not available as a spare part only the full camera and Gimbal assembly.
Great product, very poor customer service.
Best video review I've seen :
Here is great footage compilation:
