Maintenance Service

One of the most overlooked items in the UAV arena is maintenance. We fix more Phantom 3’s due to maintenance related issues than anything else. Once your UAV gets some flight hours on it, there is recommended maintenance required and most are simply unaware of it!

We offer a low cost maintenance program for DJI Phantom and Inspire series, or any other drone. This full service covers every part and screw on your multirotor. This is perfect for business and personal drones alike as it insures your multirotor is up to spec and flight ready by experienced pilots. This will give you piece of mind that your multirotor is flight ready.

  • UAVDoc Full Service Recommended: @ 200 Flights or 20 flight hours ] [Regular: $89.99 | VIP members $39.99 ]
    • UAVDoc Aircraft Thorough Inspection
      • Exterior Shell
        • Inspect for cracks and deformities in the outer shell, specifically around the motors which are more prone to cracks
        • Inspect that all screws are in place and make sure there are no loose screws.
        • Inspect all the stickers on the aircraft and make sure there are no loose stickers. Loose stickers may fall mid-flight and obstruct the motors.
        • If your country regulations requires, verify that the aircraft registration label shows up properly on the aircraft
        • Inspect motors and motor bearings insuring they are flight ready. Any worn motors or motor bearings will be recomended for replacement at parts cost (no markup).
        • Inspect the propellers and look for broken pieces, bent blades or other damage (replacements at cost)
        • Remove propellers, turn on aircraft and start the motors. Check if motors are rotating without unusual vibration and that the motor shafts rotate straight without any wobble. This simple check can save the aircraft from falling out of the sky. Even a slightly bent shaft can cause serious issues with the bearings on long flights.
        • Inspect landing gear, antennas, compass mounts
        • Inspect landing gear mounting for cracks, lose screws
        • Inspect and verify every single screw is properly torqued and tight.
      • Sensors and Vents:
        • Inspect all vents are clean and open
        • Inspect the Sonar sensors and Proximity sensors (if equipped) are clean and functioning properly
        • Perform FULL IMU calibration.
        • Perform Compass calibration (this part will need to be redone once you receieve your drone back for your area)
        • Perform Gimbal calibration
      • Gimbal: 
        • Inspect gimbal vibration absorbers – make sure they are not cracked or stiff and that they are inside their housing and not torn
        • Inspect and replace the gimbal anti-drop pins that are securing the vibration absorbers – should only be two installed
        • Inspect gimbal camera lens for damage
        • Inspect gimbal arm and wires for damage
        • Inspect gimbal motors for wear and damage (each of these 3 motors have bearing too!)
        • NEW! (optional but recommended) For Phantom 3 Advanced & Pro – Tear down of gimbal control board, inspect thermal pads between heatsink and processors. These tend to dry up and not work as well, leading to video lag and video drop outs.
      • Battery Contacts:
        • Inspect all gold battery plates inside the aircraft.
        • Inspect and clean all of the battery contacts inside the frame
        • Check to see if the metal contacts of the battery power and data sockets are damaged. Clean any arc burns.
      • Battery Maintenance:
        • Inspect each battery for damage, deformities or swelling
        • Inspect each battery for fine cracks
        • Inspect and clean battery contact pads
        • Inspect and verify battery grip and latches are fully seating
        • Inspect and verify battery voltages are correct and operating within DJI recommended specs.
        • Fully discharge cycle each battery to 8% as recommended by DJI using high end charger that monitors the battery for voltage lag and surge issues. This will tell us if there is any weakness with the battery’s performance. Each battery is fully cycled twice to insure proper cell balancing and performance.  It will be up to you to continue this process every 10-15 flights and can be done easily in the field in-between each full service.
      • Flight Test & Tuning
        • At this point, the repair technician will contact you and find out your main purpose for your multirotor, here he can select the proper tuning for your style and purpose. Long range, photography, sport flying etc all have different settings for the best performance for a particular flying style.
        • After our 30 point inspection, every multirotor is flight tested and every option and function is tested for full operation. All Phantom functions are tested and checked, including Follow Me, POI, Way points, etc.
        • During the flight tests, the pilot will check systems such as it’s hover stability, flight speed, if anything is found out of spec, the pilot will tune the gains and have your multirotor flying at top performance.
        • After all flight tests are done, a certificate of air worthiness is printed and included with your multirotor and details everything that was checked and serviced.
