Hello, I post this thread in order to make the process of replacing a damaged drone via DJI Care Refresh Express through the eyes of a client a little bit clearer.
I bought my first drone Mavic Air 2 at the begining of August 2020. Fortunately I made a DJI Care Refresh insurance. I am from Europe region. On my 4-th flight a made a very big mistake - I flew my drone only looking on the screen on my remote controller. Unfortanately, on this exact moment the drone crashed in a metal pylon and dropped to the ground from 18 meters. There were no any visible damages, except small damage on the back side of the gimble, but the gimble was not working properly.
At that moment I realised that I have to use my DJI Care Refresh insurance. The whole process took me exactly 2 weeks. At first I was a little confussed and concerned what I will receive after I chose the option of receiving a replacement unit and after reading some threads in this forum which are a little negative and a little disturbing.
My case was as follows:
1. I contacted the support team and submited a case.
2. I paid the fee.
3. I was told that I will receive a replacement unit that will be as good as new one. - This answer stressed me a little, because I couldn't understand what does this mean exactly. I was very worried whether I will recieve a new drone or a refurbished one.
4. In the same day I received a shipment label and in the same day I sent the damaged drone with propellers and battery.
5. The drone travelled to Germany where is the DJI service center in Europe for 10 days. (it is because of the schedule of the courier).
6. As soon as DJI received the damaged drone they send me the replacement unit.
7. After 4 more days I received the replacement unit via UPS courier.
Happily all my anxiety was for nothing. The replacement unit is a brand new drone produced only for replacement purposes in accordance with DJI Care Refresh terms. It is in a brand new box - only drone and propellers. I received the battery separately in the same parcel. (If you are interested I can send pictures of the parcel.)
As a client I am very satisfied with the product and the service which I received for the money. I definitely recommend all users to make DJI Care Refresh insurance - it is woth it!
My advices to all people who need to use their DJI Care Refresh are:
1. Pay attention to the case submiting process at the begining! It is very important to understand and choose what do you really want to do with your damaged drone! In my case I decided to replace it.
2. Do not hesitate to contact the support team. I chose to ask all my questions via chat support option. I chatted with several persons from the support team through the submitiing case process and I am very grateful to all of them. They were really in a great help to me and they instructed me on every step which was not completely clear to me at that time.
3. Follow the instructions which you will receive via email a little after you submit the case. I received the shipment label from DHL for a chosen courier in my country.
4. Calm down and wait for your new drone.
One more advice from me: Always keep your drone in your eyesight when you are flying especially when you are flying in a city!
At the end, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to DJI and all of the support team members who were involved in my case!

Thank you for the post, This is much appreciated and very reassuring, i have just had to make a request for a replacement. My drone took a swim in sea water, along with the controller and all the spare batteries (Don't ask). Unfortunately i was to impatient to wait for their shipment label as i would really of liked a replacement by the 10th September, so i sent it next day using DHL. DHL delivered it and it has been signed for, but because it didn't use the UPS label (which was emailed 3 days later) they can't find my parcel (9 days so far). I guess they have a large facility with lots of different departments (i'm sure it will turn up, but not in time now). So note to all. Wait and use DJI's shipping label. Thanks again, Nick

Hi Diana, Thank you for the message, Natalia has this on her radar and i'm sure she is doing a super job in the background,

it's my fault, i should have waited for the shipping label.

If they cannot find the parcel, and i buy another Mavic Air 2, am i able to swap the Care Refresh over to the new drone as i would not have used the care refresh.

Thank you,

Nick

Hi Diana

Thank you for the reply, The drone has been delivered to DJI, please see attached.

My incident involved the whole Fly More Combo being submerged in sea water for a number of hours.

so i will also need a quote for two additional batteries and a new controller so i can understand the full cost of replacement or if i should buy new and start again.

Thank you for the additional information of transfer of DJI care refresh should i buy new.

Thank you again

Nick
