    Two weeks ago I had a home break in and they made off with my Inspire 1 in it's case with two remotes and two batteries. But they didn't take the charger. If anyone notices a used I1 originating in the central Texas, US region please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    That sucks, I'm sorry for you!

    If someone is flying with it, you should see it in your profile!?

    I was actually thinking about this earlier. It would be nice if there was some anti-theft technology built in, similar to Find my iPhone. The ability to flag it as lost/stolen, and then have the location sent to you when powered on would be fairly simple.

    Keep your eye on Craigslist, eBay and call the local pawn shops most likely drug addicts they do not want it so they will turn it into Cash.to bad you did not have a tracker on it or if you did someone may turn it on not knowing what it is. Good luck and God bless

    once the AC is registered, it cant be changed so maybe if you contact dji with your serial number they may be able to detect it?

    I would contact DJI and ask if there is a way they can help track it down. I guess this would be a good time to have a tracker on it for myself. Goodluck and hope you find it in perfect condition. If you don't mind me asking, did they take anything else???

    that really sucks...

    1. pawn shops are a dead end. (i had 10k in camera equipment stolen, and caught the guy and got him to confess to pawning it, pawn shop refused to give it back without the ticket, and even then i still had to pay for it lol

    2. the app idea seems promising, but even then your on a manhunt.

    3. maybe you set up homeowners insurance, or renters insurance somewhere down the line?

    And I've already proceed the insurance which had a $2.2k deductible and depreciated value. Visited pawn shops, given the serials to the case file, and have auto search updates on CL and eBay.

    image.jpeg He's lucky it was your stuff. I would have waited for him some night. Wire my black mask and beat him silly. He would have ran back it his pad and give me my stuff back. That's why it alway pays to own a large dog like my Cane Corso Mastiff. They are not barkers Max would have let him come in then ripped his ass up

    I would think Dji would see where the drone is once the app is on or they can cancel the sn # and brick the unit like Apple can on there iPhones I would just wait outside the condo and play dective,,,, good luck

    No, other than I received my insurance and now am mulling over my replacement options. I can't decide if I want to get the one I had and loved, the I1, upgrade to one of the new Inspire Pro or wait for the next one with collision avoidance.
