Got an old drone that you never use and is just gathering dust? Even if it’s broken and unusable, it’s probably worth something.
DJI this week announced the launch of DJI Trade Up, a service where you can ship them your old, unused gear in exchange for a DJI store credit.
And it’s not just DJI gear. Trade Up also accepts other tech products like Apple iPhones and Google Pixels.
Here’s how it works:
- Get a quote
Check here to see if your device qualifies for the Trade Up program. From there, you can input details about your device, such as model, level of wear and tear, and more. If you’re ready to sell it, you’ll receive a mailing label to print.
2. Ship your DJI device
Print your mailing label, pack your device, attach the mailing label and sent it off!
3. DJI evaluates your device
Upon receiving your used gear, DJI will give it an assessment. After evaluation, if it does not match with the estimated value, DJI will email the final value to you. You can accept the final value or request to have your device returned to you.
4. Get money
If you accept DJI’s offer, you will receive a credit that will be stored in your DJI account within two business days. Customers can use theDJI Credit to purchase products at the official DJI Online Store.
Nice! I can get $56 for my used Phantom 3 Advanced!

Is the DJI Trade Up program enough to make you spring for the new Mavic 2 and give up your current drone? Or is that $56 for your used Phantom 3 not worth the hassle of printing the return label and bringing your drone to Fedex? Leave a comment below!
