Drone insurance is something not many people think of because they believe it's expensive.
But with DJI introducing the new DJI Care Refresh plans for drones like Mavic, Spark, Inspire and the new Phantom 4 series there's no reason to fear anymore.
In my experience you'll be close to pooping your pants at least once every 3 flights, especially if you try to challenge the maximum range for the DJI Mavic.
At those moments you wish you had some backup in case anything happened.
Drone crashes don't just happen to a few unlucky people that post it on youtube video compilations. NO! It's almost certain you'll do something to damage your drone even if you're super careful about it.
For example, I totally hit my DJi Spark with My Mavic. Fortunately almost nothing happened, they are pretty tough, but imagine a fall from 100m...
I think you got it by now.
What's the difference between DJI Care and DJI Care refresh?
Dji Care has been an aditional service offered starting with the Phantom 3 series, that allows you to get your broken drone parts replaced with new ones with no aditional cost.
Today we're talking mostly about DJI Care REFRESH, which is pretty much DJI care for drones newer than the Mavic (including it).
The items covered by DJI care are:
- Inspire 2
- DJI Phantom 4 Pro
- DJI Phantom 4 Advanced
- DJI Spark
- Mavic Pro
- Inspire cameras: Zenmuse x4s and x5s
You can get your parts replaced for free, while they also pay for shipping, and you can also get 2 new replacement units for a small fee. So basically you can mess up twice and get 2 brand new drones during the 12 months of DJI care waranty.
How can you activate DJI care Refresh?
You can buy DJI care refresh online in the next 5 minutes, if your drone has been activated for less than 48 hours, but if it has been longer, you'll need to make a video to prove that your drone is working. I got mine approved after 2 months of use in just one day.
If not, you can buy it right now along with your drone and activate it when it arrives.
Top 9 reasons why you should get DJI Care Refresh
3.You can replace almost all the parts for free.
However, keep in mind that you get the entire drones replaced for a small fee if the damage can't be repaired in the terms above, so there's no crack about it 😉

These are the fees you need to pay to get the 2 replacement units for each product individually:
Cables and Birds are probably the things I'm most afraid of when flying these days.
And both are covered by this plan!
You can usually find it underneath the battery or next to it.
And after you payed, you'll get the confirmation email and your life has just suddenly gotten better.
If you have the drone for a longer time than 48 hours you'll need to record a video outside using the guidelines provided here.
And after you submit that video to DJI, they will allow you to buy DJI Care Refresh for your drone.
