    If you look at exclusion #3 which is "damage caused by flight in unsuitable flight environments" appears to be rather vague. If the wind, temp or such is greater than they recommend does that void it? If you hit a power line or cell phone tower will they say you shouldn't have been flying around those. And although most going into the drink are not recovered, some are, so I would like to see those being offered to be repaired as well.

    I think the coverage is the amount you paid for the aircraft itself.

    In the case of the phantom 3 pro - the insurance amount is $250 or so for about $750 (the original $1,000 purchase price minus the insurance amount) of coverage. In addition there is the shipping cost of sending the drone in to be fixed.

    For me I'll pass on this. In the past whenever I've purchased these protection plans it always seems to be more trouble then they are worth especially when trying to collect.

    If I read it correctly, the coverage for a P3P is $999 for $279. When the $999 is used up or the unit is replaced, the coverage ends.

    Also remember to check your credit card(most of us did pay with one). Many cards double the warranty on your purchase, up to one full year. So you could get up to a full year of coverage for free, excluding flyaway and the like.

    Look at exclusion number 8. What the heck is majeure? I gotta see what this is supposed to mean.

    Force majeure is a legal term basically meaning an act of God.

    I went online and a Dji chat rep told me it is available for Europe including UK costing 199 euros for 6 months or 299 euros for 1 year, but is handled via European repair centre
