Hi all,

I need some help. I purchased the air a few months ago and have been flying well since. I do not have DJI care. However, recently I crashed the drone into a tree and it fell from around 100 feet. After the fall, the drone looks fine and is responsive to joystick gimbal commands, however I cannot take off - I keep getting an error saying that the processor chip is overheating.

I’ve read around a few forums and it appears to be an issue with the internal fan. What are my options? Will DJIs warrenty cover this? I’m fearful because if they do a data analysis, they are surely to see the crash and connect the two.

Pay for DJI to fix it. Pay for someone local to replace the fan. Find a fan and attempt a repair yourself. Or reach out to @Thunderdrones on this forum (if in the US), and request a repair through him.

They won't cover it and they will surely check the logs. Because this was pilot error and not a manufacturer defect, warranties are not relevant.
