Warranty Claim Process For DJI Products
Experiencing difficulties with your DJI product? We are here to assist. As drone pilots we understand technical difficulties can be frustrating and never fun to deal with. We sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused. But the good news is DJI extends a warranty on all their products.
All packages come directly from DJI distributor warehouses; therefore, any problems with the contents and/or functionality of anything inside the packages must be addressed with the manufacturer directly. DJI’s technical team is certified to inspect and deam product malfunctions under their manufacture guidelines. Below you will find the steps to complete a warranty claim direct with DJI.
Please read the DJI after care service policy CAREFULLY before contacting DJI to see if your particular technical issue is covered. After that, you can contact DJI to start a warranty claim. Once the claim is initiated you will need to send the items directly to DJI. They will inspect the unit and repair or replace the purchase at their discretion.
**IMPORTANT: DO NOT SEND YOUR DRONE TO DJI IF: The drone has crashed or experienced an impact landing. DJI’s certified technicians will be able to tell from the flight logs. DJI does not cover for any reason products that have crashed or incurred a hard / impact landing and it’s not covered under warranty. We sell crash protection plans at the time of your purchase for this reason.

What is data analysis?
Inside the aircraft is a data recorder, similar to one known as a "black box" in passenger aircraft. The data recorder takes note of flight status (e.g., altitude and speed), the pilot's operation, and other flight data in real time. The product assessment stage includes this data analysis to determine cause and responsibility for the accident (i.e., whether the accident was a product defect or user error). For more details about data analysis, please visit this DJI Forum post.
