The Camera Storeʼs UAV Return Policy:
All sales of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles, drones, and flying cameras) are final. There are no returns on UAVs and exchanges will only occur if the unit is DOA. DOA is defined as a brand new unit that will not turn on, or a brand new unit that does function properly prior to first flight (e.g. lights will not turn on). Once a UAV has been used it cannot be exchanged.
The Camera Storeʼs UAV Warranty Information:
The DJI Phantoms have a 1 year manufacturerʼs warranty, with the exception of propellers, which are not covered under warranty. The manufacturerʼs warranty only covers manufacturerʼs defects.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I return my Phantom if it is not functioning properly?
All Sales of UAVs are final sales. There are no returns on UAVs, and exchanges will only occur if the unit is DOA.
What should I do prior to my first flight?
Read all the literature provided and go onto the following website for ʻout of the box set upʼ and ʻfirst flightʼ instruction. Check that all electrical connections, rotors, screws, nuts and bolts are all connected properly. We highly recommend the use of propeller guards. Check for any firmware updates before any planned flight.
What is the first flight I should take?
The first flights should be training flights to familiarize the pilot with the controls. DJI Phantom supplies an exercise book that provides a number of exercises. These should be conducted in open areas, away from obstacles and people.
Can I fly my Phantom by myself?
For recreational purposes Transport Canada requires that the UAV is always in sight and flies no higher than 400m. Keep in mind the pilot will also be checking their monitor so it is advisable to have a second person who can have eyes on the UAV at all times.
Can I fly my UAV indoors?
No, there will is no GPS hook up and controlling the unit in indoors environment is very difficult.
What do I need for a safe flight?
Make sure that the UAV has GPS connectivity and has locked on to multiple satellites. Be aware that flying near structures such as buildings and trees can interfere with the satellite signal. Also be aware that your UAV cannot detect these structures so fly with caution and always have eyes on the UAV.
Who is responsible if my UAV crashes or gets lost?
The pilot/operator is 100% responsible for all damages and loss of the unit.
