What is D1 Trade In?

The D1 Trade-in program is a program designed for you to trade in your old/used drone for credit that will offset the purchase price of the drone you want.

How Does it work?

We've streamlined the trade in process to make it easier for you to get your new drone faster. The online form has a few simple questions about you along with the condition of the drone and the drone you wish to trade-up into. Our team will contact you within 1 business day to let you know if your drone is eligible for trade-in and what the estimated credit will be and the price to trade-up into your desired drone.

If you accept the trade-up estimate you will need to prepare your drone to be traded-in. Simply, all you need to do is back-up your files on the internal storage, remove the SD and format the internal storage. You will find this setting in the photo/video settings.

If you wish to do the trade-up in store, simply visit our store and team members in-store will verify the trade-in estimate. If there are any additional issues with the drone, the trade-in value may be adjusted. Once the drones are swapped and the excess paid, you're all done and ready to enjoy your new drone!

If you wish to do the trade-up online, simply ship the drone to our address. If there are any additional issues with the drone, the trade-in value may be adjusted. Once the drones are swapped and the excess paid, we will ship your new drone out to you ASAP!
