After reading so many different posts about DJI customer service, I thought I’d take a minute to share some of the positive experience I have had with them. I have owned several DJI drones: Mavic Air, Mavic 2 Pro, Spark and almost every Phantom all the way up to my P4. Just like everybody else, I have crashed my drones for couple of times now, and inevitably I've been dealing with DJI support for numerous times. So I know what I'm talking about.

Last month I went to Melbourne to complete a project for my client. That morning I flew 2 batteries with no issues but afternoon the plans were changed and we moved to another shooting location. I wasn’t familiar with the shooting spot and guess what... all of a sudden, I lost connection to my drone.  After 10-15 seconds connection got back, it turned into Atti mode (kind of "no GPS mode" if you doesn't know). So I pushed back and crashed into a pole that was hanging of the rooftop… Yea… I guess no matter how experienced you are, you can still get freaked out when you lose control of it. When I found my drone, the front left landing gear and motor were broken.

Though I still got quota for 2 replacements of DJI care refresh, I didn’t expect to use them that soon.

Then I’ve applied for DJI repair service here https://www.dji.com/service/repair and sent it in. I was supposed to pay $328 for the repair, but as I had an option to use DJI care refresh, I only spent $159 to get a new Mavic 2 pro.

(You can actually choose to ‘Use Care Refresh’ here)

Almost every two days since they received my drone they e-mailed me to keep me informed of the status. Turnaround time was surprisingly fast, I got a new Mavic 2 Pro that works fine in less than 10 days. Surprisingly, they sent me a bunch of free accessories that I didn’t ask for.
DJI support folks handled the situation very quickly,and covered my incident at the very reasonable cost for me and with no problem on their end. So far, they have exceeded my expectations.

Also, here are some tips according to refresh for you guys that might be useful:

1.  You got a chance to select to use or not to use one of the replacement plans. If the damaged parts cost more than the care refresh replacement fee, MAKE SURE you don’t pay for the repair fees,when you actually can choose to use DJI Care Refresh at less cost.

2.  The care service bound on the old drone will be transfered to the new one automatically after the whole process. So, if you’ve replaced your drone, and there is still a quota for one replacement left for your old drone,DJI customer service team will automatically link the refresh service to your new drone.

Anyway, I see some people online are complaining about DJI customer service, but so far, their team is taking good care of me...lol!

People are just quick to post negative things, when someone's having complains, the first thing they want to do is to spread the words.
Till now, my experience with dji customer service is also great, nothing to complain about.

Had similar experience before, my drone crashed before, I just contacted DJI Support once at the beginning, they guided me to create a repair case, then I sent it in. Several days after they received the drone, I got a quotation which told me that my drone will be repaired under warranty, they sent the repaired drone to me very quickly. I never tried to bother them again and again, just wait for an update patiently, the fact is they didn't let me down. So far, I am a happy customer.

Same here, I bought a used MP several weeks ago, and it began showing the error messages with the calibration. Then I contacted DJI Support through email, they reminded me that I'm still within the warranty period, and advise me to send it in and offered me a prepaid shipping label.   After DJI authorized the return of my MP, they sent it back to me just the next day. DJI covered the entire shipping fee. After I received it, it's just a completely new drone to me, and my RMC had also been replaced.

That's good to hear.
It's very likely they've replaced your drone instead of repairing it. Though I don't understand why there are so many people complaining about the refurbished drones they provide, I find it fair enough to get a new drone with acceptable price.

Yeah.. that's why I intend to say some positive stuff here.
At least most of DJI support staff is trying hard to take good care of their customers.  Also, drones are far too complicated than other products, it's for sure it'll take longer time and more patience to complete the procedures.

Glad to hear the experience was good. I only had to contact them once or twice in the beginning with my new M2P about calibration issues, and CS was quick to respond, as were others on this forum that ultimately led me in the proper direction to get flying.

Out of curiosity, is it always better to just use the Refresh over the repair steps with support? I think the Refresh gives you 2 new replacements with a deductible of $159 or something like that. I would imagine a good crash would produce above and beyond the deductible value for any repairs needed. I have the Refresh, and hopefully I don't have to use it, but that is what insurance is for! You pay for it in hopes you don't have to use it!

When the repair fee goes higher than the replacement fee, it's definitly better to use the Care Refresh, besides, it's faster.
I guess most of the people won't crash their drone that hard for more than 2 times within 1 year. So.. if your drone has to go through the repair steps, why not just replace it and get a new drone from DJI. It's a good bargain.

Well it's good to hear a few positive stories about DJI repairs. I have not had cause to use the service yet but have always heard good things about the Australian repair facility.
I hope by saying this that I have not put a jinx on myself

Are you sure it is NEW? Normally it is a refurbished unit that crashed like yours...

I’ve noticed those willing to condemn dji customer service are usually those who have crashed because of pilot error and didn’t have care refresh , expected a warranty and didn’t get it, so they come here to whinge and complain .

Pretty much what i am seeing also.
I mean, how anyone even can crash dji things?
They are totally automated, practically flying for the operator.
I've crashed gazillion of CCPMs, some acros and not a single camera glider... (= dji drones)

Can't agree more.
It's way harder to crash mavic 2(I wasn't sure how I did it though), most of the case it's probably the pilot's fault.

You really had to push it hard with all that sensors and what not....
If you got warranty cover, it means device malfunction and not pilot error.

Thing is, majority of cases I am seeing on the forum are not like that.

Problem is, the back sensor can''t really detech the pole. So it was actually my fault to have it crashed.
But the care refresh thing saved me about $170.
It's a dji forum, so I'm not surpirsed to see people complaining about dji customer service to get all the attention and vent their angers.  But I just don't think it'll help anything if it's actually their own faults.
