So basically I just needed to vent. Yesterday my P4Pro was stolen out of my car. I can not begin to tell you how upset I am that this happened. I finally found a hobby that I love and then this happens.

So a reminder to everyone here on the forum, please make sure your keeping your drone safe while in your vehicle or home. I would recommend covering it or storing it in a cubby while in your car. Out of sight, out of mind.

Now the hard part begins. Saving up for a new bird  

Thanks for listening to my rant.

I had it in a Lowepro backpack but it wasn’t covered with anything so whom ever looked in saw it and figured it was something good.

Yes a police report was filed but it might be a long shot to ever getting it back. Thanks

I am truly sorry for your loss on this because of some shady bar stewards. Would your house/car insurance pick up on the loss for you?

They'll lift anything that's not nailed down nowadays, and sometimes even that.

That’s an expensive lesson, for others to heed...

Sorry it’s probably too late for yourself but, at least you know better now.

You can’t trust others, only yourself. I hope it wasn’t taken, by someone you know.


Good luck, and hope you can save up fast... what about your automobile or home insurance?
Just bite the bullet, &  Pay the deductible if need be...

I have no idea but guessing DJI has a hands off approach on this.
Might be interesting to check.
Blacklist per serial numbers like Apple?
Would assume DJI would be able to see each piece of equipment - drone, controller, battery if any of it is seen again on their site.

Good idea, I believe that should work.
Espcially if the person (M,F or T) test it in their back garden/yard, GPS signal and bingo!

Thanks,

Auto deductible is a $1000 and since I bought the P4P on craigslist I have no poof of purchase. Painful lesson but leaned from it fr sure.

Sorry, for your loss, and wishing you get another one soon.
