How would I file a claim? Is there anything I would need to have?
Filing a claim is easy! You can contact CPS by going online at www.cpscentral.com or by phone 800-905-0443. 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. All Deductibles are in US Dollars.

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.
