DJI launches repair service for clumsy drone owners

While drone crash videos might be funny to watch, they aren’t as amusing for the owners of the devices.

Accidents are pretty common, not everyone is a skilled pilot from the get-go, so all the little bangs and mishaps can amount to a costly bill. So, to give drone owners peace of mind, DJI has launched a repair service.

DJI Care is available for people who already own a DJI drone as well as new purchasers. It is limited to the Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 ranges though.

The care packages are available in 6-month and 12-month plans, with prices starting at $99. There is a coverage cap on each plan though, so you still can’t be completely reckless.

The service is available to drone owners in the US, parts of Europe and Mainland China at launch.
