DJI Refurbished Drones : A Deeper Look

A lot of customers come to the store or send us a message and ask: Is a DJI refurbished drone worth it or not?

The first reason to buy a refurbished drone is mainly because of a cheaper price. For example, a brand-new Phantom 4 drone costs $999 while a refurbished Phantom 4 only cost $799. The price difference certainly makes that an attractive option, right?

So why is the price is so much cheaper? The product was initially deficient and sent back to DJI by customers within seven days after they confirm receipt. The drone is then tested to determine the issue. Any defective parts are replaced and the drone is then tested before it can be labeled as factory refurbished.

But what about the device quality? Maybe you have some concerns but don’t worry, every refurbished product has undergone a professional refurbishing process that brings it up to the same high standards as new products, and all refurbished products come with new parts, new packaging and warranty.

According to DJI, these drones have been tested thoroughly so it seems there is no reason to worry about drones performances. At the DJI factory level, each DJI refurbished drone is thoroughly tested by trained drone specialists who know exactly what to look for. Once testing is complete, the drone comes with new packaging a standard DJI’s manufacturer warranty. As always, if you’re not happy with the product’s appearance and have not activated it, you can return the drone within 7 days of receiving it for a full refund or another refurbished drone.

The Verydrone team share different points of views about purchasing a refurbished drone.

First case: If you intend to buy a drone for mostly recreational use, and the higher price of new drones isn’t as attractive, then a factory refurbished DJI drone might be the perfect option for you.

Second case: If you intend to invest in a drone for professional and regular use (as a drone photographer), then a brand new drone purchase might be a better option for you.
