Hello, I just saw this on DJI official Chinese forum:  http://bbs.dji.com/thread-97924-1-1.html
They came out a new polity for DJI care refresh, all water damages gonna be also covered. So existed to fly on lakes or beach.

Just wondering if the same policy apply to North America region (Canada) as well?

This is being talked about in the Phantom forum, you might find your answer there.

yes, dji care refresh now covers water damage. Retrieving said drone that goes for a swim is now the issue at hand lol.

Look under dji care refresh FAQ #10.

If you ever lose it over an ocean or bay, just remember there are always local fisherman, or boat owners willing to make an extra buck $$$ to retrieve your drone.

Here's my question.. does the Mavic float.. or sink?

If it sinks, it might be worth buying a little foam cutout to attach so it doesn't sink, if you're flying over a lot of water.

Yes, Thanks for the link. DJI should make it visible to everyone, I had a hard time searching for it on DJI.com

Foam is a good idea! I believe a DIY / 3rd party floating device gonna come out soon.

I have had my Mavic for less than a week but didn't purchase DJI Care Refresh because it didn't cover water damage.

I'm not happy at all as I would have purchased it had DJI been covering this a week ago.

Will there be any plan to give more than the 48 hours post activation now that the plan has changed so significantly? I would like to purchase it now that it has it.

you can still buy it and activate it after 48 hours - as long as the mavic is still working.

I activated it 5 days ago and specifically did not purchase DJI Care Refresh because it did not cover water damage.

There's still an option to purchase it 48+ hours after activation? Could you please direct me to the page to do it?

Feel your pain, but it was still worth it without the water damage ... I bought it and i'm glad i did. The only thing it doesnt cover is FlyAway, but that shouldnt happen, i guess :0

I'm sure i've heard of someone pleading to get care refresh added after the initial 48hrs, so it might be worth a PM to DJI-Ken/DJI-Mindy

True. But the link given is provided on the Mavic page:
http://store.dji.com/product/dji ... -pro?site=brandsite
I guess the process is the same.

I'm not sure, but I think he's saying you can buy the Care Refresh now, but it won't take effect for 48 hours. If so that is a good thing.
