Here at Droneoptix we are always looking to buy drones. We offer the simplest option of all as we even arrange the shipping. All you need to do is package up the drone and it can either be dropped off at a local parcelshop, or collected from your doorstep. We send the money either through Paypal before you send the drone, or by bank transfer once we have received and tested it, so you get actual cash, rather than store credit.

With cutting edge technology comes a frequent upgrade cycle, and there has been a flood of used drones hitting the market over the past years.


eBay has tremendous brand recognition and of course a huge audience. If you have an eBay account and are prepared to pack and ship your drone, an eBay listing can be a good idea. Be prepared to take a bit of hit if it does sell, however. eBay takes around a 10%-12% cut of your profits.

The DJI Trade-Up program allows you to trade in your used equipment towards new DJI gear. Although you do not receive cash payouts, you do receive credits towards brand new equipment. Some users state that payouts are quite low, however it does save you the hassle of having to sell your drone privately.

This company offers a drone buyback program that appears to be a great option to get your cash quickly. They do pay significantly less than if you were to sell the drone yourself and pocket all the proceeds of a sale, but it may be an option for some sellers.


When you make a sale, eBay keeps a portion of the sale (typically 12.55% of the sale price plus $0.30 per order). Though, eBay handles the actual transactions. When items sell, they send your payouts directly to your bank account.


There are a number of eBay-esque websites, but designed specifically for drones. Online market places like DroneTrader allow you to list your used drone gear, and often for free. While this may help you avoid fees that major sites like eBay charge, you may also have less seller support. Drone Girl has not independently review any of these drone-specific marketplaces, so use them at your own risk.

If the assessment matches, your payment will be issued by check or Paypal within 1 business day after passing inspection. If there are any discrepancies found during the testing process, you will be sent a revised offer by email which you can choose to accept or reject. If you do not wish to accept this revised price quote, your device will be returned to you. In many cases, your broken or damaged drone may be worth some money.

The best way to trade your old drone for cash is by selling to a trade-in program such as BuyBackWord, listing your drone for sale on platforms such as eBay and Drone Trader, or selling your drone locally on Marketplace.


To unregister your drone, log in to your FAA account and click on Manage SUAS Inventory. This will show you all of the drones registered under your account. Look for the drone you want to unregister and click the Cancel option.


Some buyers may be leery of buying a used drone from a stranger on the internet, and selling locally allows you to meet with your buyer which gives you the opportunity to show them that the drone works properly. This is a plus for many buyers, and the convenience of selling to someone local will enable you to exchange the drone and accessories for cash without the hassle of shipping.


When selling your drone on Facebook Marketplace, you can simultaneously market the listing to drone enthusiasts in those groups. Targeting your listing to people who are interested in drones will result in a quicker sale.


Selling your drone on eBay can reach a broader market of worldwide buyers but does come with some drawbacks. Aside from the eBay fees involved with listing and selling your used drone on the platform, there is also the issue of returns.


eBay now allows buyers to return merchandise for a full return within 90 days of purchase, which can put you in a rough spot when it comes to selling electronics such as a flying camera. However, eBay is still a viable option for selling your used drone.


Lt. Gen. Charles Hooper, director of the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), emphasized changes underway to the Conventional Arms Transfer (CAT) policy, which has thus far prevented the sale of armed drones to Washington's Arab allies.


The UAE has had Chinese Wing Loong I drones since 2016, and started receiving its purchases of the upgraded and deadlier Wing Loong II in early 2018. The UAVs, intended for surveillance and reconnaissance, can carry a range of weapons including missiles and laser-guided bombs to blow up targets on land or in the air. The Saudis have bought China's CH-4 and the Wing Loong II, and both countries have deployed their drones in Yemen.


According to Jack Watling, a land warfare expert at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, the UAE's Chinese drone purchases began after the the U.S. refused to sell them American armed UAVs.


Gulf militaries do have American drones, but not ones capable of destroying targets. These include the U.S.-made Predator XP, which can carry ISR camera packages, but it's downgraded so that it can't carry weapons systems.


In November, as part of the Trump administration's push to sell more weapons abroad, the State Department released updates to the CAT policy featuring measures to speed up arms transfers and reduce previous restrictions.


But supplying the technology to the Gulf could backfire on the U.S., Watling says. The U.S. provides its allies ISR in exchange for access and leverage; "if they sell the platforms, and the UAE and Saudis get good at using them, then they will be less dependent on the U.S."


Camera drones have many practical uses, including recording weddings, inspecting construction sites, and checking on anything high up. It can make life more convenient since you don't need to climb to inspect a structure like a windmill or roof. 041b061a72
