    I just got a full coverage policy on my P4 for $60 through State Farm. Covers everything including accesories, fire , theft, lost, damage!

    Do you know if that covers all types of damage and an unlimited number of incidents?

    I'm in New Hampshire, I was told it covers everything, full coverage. This is a new policy for State Farm. The policy was actually $21 but the agency has a minimum on policy issues of $60.

    They said it is full coverage at a value of $1400, so if something happens I buy a new one. My guess would be, like any other policy, the more claims the higher the rates. I was told any fire , theft , damage or loss. Full coverage.

    Do you have other State Farm policies, or is this your only one? Just wondering if this is just an add-on to an existing policy and you're already a customer/client/insured.

    Is there liability coverage with it too?

    I have commercial insurance here in Canada through a Specialty Market and my drone is covered, but it's expensive of course as it is liability as well as the drone.

    I just finished Ground School Training and the instructor said to check out Marsh Insurance here in Canada for insurance, haven't checked them out though as I already have my policy.

    I insure my motorcycle with State Farm but this is a separate policy. They had received information from State Farm about insurance for drones but is for recreation purpose only.

    No liability, just coverage on drone

    I feel that it is a peace of mind and now I can fly with out worry that if something was to go wrong I would be covered and can replace my bird. Plus much cheaper than the insurance from the manufacturer.

    I had to provide the insurance company with my receipt and my FAA registration, also brought the drone in to verify it in good running condition.

    The drone is only like $20 of that $60 minimum so you could cover your laptop and other electronics for the same $60 minimum which is what I did based on my reps advice.

    Let's not say "everything", liability is more risk than losing a $1400 drone. However not a bad policy to have if you crash a lot.

    If somebody in Germany is going to have the same question I will be happy to give them a recommendation.
