* Discretional D-Warranty allows a customer to purchase a replacement unit at cost (for example you accidentally drop your brand new camera, you may have an option to purchase a replacement lens or another new camera at cost from our warehouse.  This is only provided to our good standing customers who submit a ticket directly, limited to what is in stock and subjected to a manager's discretion.  

All products are checked before they are sent out. In the unlikely event that product is faulty, we must be notified within 30 days of receipt and product must be returned to our service center for repair at the address as provided by us, provided that the device has not been altered beyond that necessary to evaluate it, has no physical damage, and has been soldered or assembled by the user. Manufacturing defects identified during that period will be repaired by UC DRONE INC or replaced by with the same item.  You are required to provide photos or a video of the item(s) if returns for servicing is required.  This is to help us assist you in evaluating the problem, before you ship back a product.  This will help you determine if a product is indeed a defect.

UC DRONE INC will not accept products that have been clearly used more than the amount needed to evaluate their functionality. If the products are found to be in working condition and the lack of functionality is a result of knowledge or assembly error on the customer’s part, no replacement will be made, but the products will be returned to the customer at their expense.  The warranty is voided if there is evidence that the product has been modified, hack, used with non Walkera software, parameters changed or an effort to “unauthorized fix” it, UC DRONE INC will not be responsible and therefore will not provide an exchange or repair it.

We may choose to send you a replacement part (DIY).  If you prefer to have it repaired at our service center, an estimated labor cost will be provided by our USA Authorized Service Centers.
