For credit toward a newer model of DJI product, the DJI trade-up program offers credit for a new DJI product by trading in an older model; the cost for you to ship to them is free (they will email you a shipping label). I sent a Phantom 3 standard with an unused float kit, two new batteries and four propeller guards (with eight serviceable propellers), charger, cables, transmitter, prop hub guards and the minor accessory kit. Their initial estimate was 97.00$US. The a/c has about four very local flights and is low time.

I sent the gear and their reply was yep, we'll give you credit for a new DJI device in the amount of 27.50(?)! Mind you I would have to pay $35 to $40 to have my gear returned. I have a number of aircraft in my fleet and have owned this P3 since early 2016. It has been "For Sale" in a couple of forums for 18 months(?), but I wanted to warn you about the trade-up program. I am Part 107 certified. My hindsight is your 20-20 vision, I hope.

Thanks for reading.

For that money, I'd give the kit to a youngster who's keen to get into the hobby, or just fly it like you stole it and risk crashes. Way more fun than a few dollars.

Promote the flying arts!!

Unless a crash hurts anyone, but I get your drift.

Yeah, lucky to get 10% for a trade in program. That wasn't "free" shipping...that was $40+ taken off the $97 "estimate". Cheap bastages.
