With the introduction of DJI’s Mavic Pro, the drone maker is offering a protection plan that costs $99.
- Buy Mavic Pro from B&H Photo for $999
- Buy Mavic Pro from DJI for $999
- Buy Mavic Pro from Amazon for $999
DJI Care Refresh will cover accidental damage to the Mavic Pro’s aircraft, gimbal or camera during normal use for up to 12 months.
But, once you pay the $99 fee, you’ll still have to pay an additional fee to get a new drone (which is new or equivalent to new). The first replacement will cost $79 and the second will cost $129.
DJI Care Refresh must be purchased before a new Mavic Pro is activated or within the first 48 hours after activation.
However, the big question mark for many buyers is the fact that DJI Care Refresh does not cause water damage. Of course, it also doesn’t cover flyaways (presumably so DJI can profit off of the parts that still work, and so users couldn’t say they “lost” it and get a second drone for $99). Is it still worth it?
