Hi all,

I found a submerged Mavic Pro, last 31August17 as I was diving in Sesimbra - Portugal.


As it was in such bad condition(probably submerged for couple weeks or so) I attached no importance and took it home.


Only recently I got aware of the value of these gadgets, as I was asked to dive again to recover another lost drone...   and learned about the "DJI Care" service.


I am now trying to locate it's owner to be able to return it, but DJI will not disclose any contacts.


So, if you have lost your Mavic Pro (or know of someone who did) in the area, please contact me.
If your serial number matches the one I'm holding, I will give you your drone back.


BTW I couldn't retrieve any data from the SD card...

Was it submerged in Fresh or Salt Water ? If it was submerged in salt water you might as well shine her up and use it as a unique paperweight

Yes it was salt water and yes I know it can't be recovered.
Still, I guess the owner will like to learn about the outcome of it...

The owner may still hold the Care Refresh papers on it, so actually could be £800-900 better off if he gets the drone back and claims the refresh and then sells the drone.

Would be a nice service by DJI not to disclose any user data to the finder, which is alright, but to inform the original owner.  It must have been registered with a corresponding mail address.

Just found in a similar post that DJI is willing to try to contact the original owner if the serial of the recovered Mavic is sent to them.
...
Please contact the Support via support@dji.com and report the issue, our colleagues will try to contact the owner. Thanks for your kindness.

Great gesture! Thank you for being a decent human!
I too found a drone (racing, non-DJI), posted a lost and found on the Nextdoor app. with pictures and the owner called me the next day with the FAA ID # and he got his drone back. This was after joining several racing clubs forums in my area and posting with no response. NextDoor works!

We need more good, honest people like you in the world.  Would be great karma if DJI were to give this man a new drone for his efforts!!!  Would also be great publicity, what do you say DJI?

Great intentions! Thank you! Unfortunately without DJI's help on locating the last owner there is a small chance it will be returned.
On another more hopeful note it may have been registered with ANAC if the pilot ever needed a permit... drones@anac.pt / +351 212 842 226


Good Luck!

No positive replies on this post so far (and it's been a while…)
Will try to contact ANAC and see if it leads anywhere…  just before I throw it in the garbage container and forget about it ;-)
