The accidental option for our contract provides our customers with complete Peace of Mind. By adding the accidental option to one of our service plans, you are enabling us to cover unintentional damages to your product as a result of: impact or dropping, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage.
This option goes above and beyond a manufacturer’s warranty which would not provide coverage on such damages as listed above.
Although accidental coverage covers most damages it does not cover intentional damages of any kind or losses due to theft. This means if you have a so-called 'fly away' and are unable to locate your drone, you wouldn't be eligible for a replacement.
What is Covered: If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, as indicated on your Warranty Card as well as your Online Account, this Plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage is an option for new, store-purchased items and protects against drops and spills.
What is Not Covered: Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the Covered Product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Accidental Coverage also does not cover damage incurred by natural disasters (ie: hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires...etc), or damage that is incurred by an animal or pet (ie: dog chewing). Coverage for this plan shall begin on the date of purchase. Accidental Coverage must appear on the original bill of sale alongside the covered product and must be registered. Refer to the details of the warranty for the full list, but there are some notable exclusions to your coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover?
Full parts and labor on all internal hardware failure for recreational drones.
Does the Drone coverage start on the date of purchase, or is it an extended warranty plan?
Begins on the end user’s date of purchase. For example, if the customer purchase a Drone with a 2 year CPS plan, they will receive 2 total years from date of purchase. There is a 30 days claims hold to prevent DOAs or manufacturer defects, and CPS coverage will begin on day 31. Any claims that occur during that first 30 days would not be covered under this plan.
Does accidental coverage protect my drone against crashes?
Yes it does! It covers physical damage, excessive damage, impact damage, water damage, and everything in between.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover the camera or gimbal?
If the camera or gimbal is included in the box from the manufacturer, then yes, the CPS warranty will cover it as well.
Will the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover propellers? Will I have to send in my unit for a replacement part?
Replacing the drone’s propellers is a maintenance issue and is not covered under warranty. Propellers are user replaceable parts. Depending on the manufacturer, it is recommended to replace propellers if your customers notice a change in flight experience or experience noisy/unbalanced flight.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover the rechargeable battery?
Batteries are consumables and are not covered under warranty.
What happens if the remote control malfunctions or is damaged. Would that be covered as well?
CPS will cover the remote (that was included in the box from the manufacturer) for full parts and labor on any hardware malfunctions, as well as any accidental damage claims.
How would I file a claim? Is there anything I would need to have?
Filing a claim is easy! You can contact CPS by phone or email to file a claim. You also can file a claim directly through your CPS Client Care account, and via the chat on CPS website. You would need to submit your CPS Membership ID # to file a claim, the drone’s serial #, along with a copy of your original purchase receipt.
Who will repair my drone? Is there anywhere I can bring their drone in locally for service?
After providing the deductible payment, you will be directed to ship your product at your expense to CPS’s depot repair facility. Once received, based on the manufacturer, the drone will either be fixed by our in house Drone Repair Center or sent to the manufacturer directly. Unfortunately at this time you would be unable to repair your drones locally, as CPS would not be able to control the quality of the repair.
I noticed that a deductible applies at time of claim, how is that determined?
The warranty deductible is based off of the contract the customer is purchasing. For units under $250.00 the deducible is as low as $30.00, and for units under $3,500.00 the deductible is $250.00. Please feel free to contact us for full pricing and deductible information.
Will my coverage continue after CPS repairs my drone?
Yes it will! The coverage will remain in place until the contract expires, or unless the drone is replaced under warranty.
How many claims can I file over the life of their warranty plan?
You can file unlimited claims on their product, but coverage will cap out once the repair costs reach the original purchase price of their product.
What happens if the service center cannot repair the drone because of excessive damage, or if it’s beyond economical repair?
If CPS cannot fix the drone, CPS will replace it. CPS also will offer you the option of a check for the cost of the replacement.
Will the CPS coverage continue on to the replacement drone?
Unfortunately no, once the drone is replaced the CPS contract is considered fulfilled. You can purchase a new Drone Warranty for their replacement unit.
If I lost my drone, can they transfer the warranty over to the new drone they are purchasing?
Unfortunately no, if a unit is lost, the CPS warranty coverage would be voided.
I am selling my drone, can I sell the warranty with it?
You absolutely can. Transferring ownership is simple via the CPS Customer Experience Department. Please note, a $25.00 transfer fee will apply.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover commercially used drones?
This plan will only cover drones used recreationally (consumer use only). Unfortunately we do not have coverage for commercial products at this time
