My Mavic mini pro 3 crashed after one month after I bought it.
I fly it in the same location it crashes like 100 times.

Mavic replay:
This accident is caused by user error. Below is the analysis result for your reference:

The GPS signal was weak and the aircraft was piloted under Attitude mode.
T=76s, h=1.9m, the aircraft crashed in Attitude mode.
In Attitude mode, the aircraft could not hover in place, brake, and avoid obstacles automatically, please fly with caution.

They want me to pay 600 $ to fix it
What do you think?

what do you think?
I think that DJI aren't very good at explaining the cause of a drone crash.
We can't tell much from what you've posted.
But if you want to find out why the drone crashed, go to DJI Flight Log Viewer | Phantom Help
Follow the instructions there to upload your flight record from your phone or tablet.
That will give you a detailed report of the flight.
Come back and post a link to the report it gives you.
Or .. just post the txt file here.
And someone might be able to analyse it and give you an understanding of the cause of the incident.

this is my filght record
Your flight data looks like this:

You launched the drone with no GPS.
Your GPS data indicates zero satellites for the whole flight.ithout GPS, your drone can't record a homepoint and has no horizontal position holding ability and no brakes.
When you move the drone forward and centre the sticks, it will continue sliding through the air.

You climbed to 7 feet and gave it full right stick.
The drone went forward at full speed and crashed hard at 11.4 seconds.

There is no doubt that the crash was a result of the way the drone was flown.
You flew into an obstacle and crashed into it.

DJI's explanation is very brief, but accurate.

Thank you for providing free information for the new member. Seems like "don't shoot the messenger" was not taken into consideration haha.
I have no idea what you are suggesting.
I just interpreted the data and explained what it showed.

so all blame on me ?
thank you
I would like you to go ahead and read the manual of the drone before you fly.
Because there are important things to know, like WAIT for GPS before launching, wait for the homepoint to get registered, and even set the RTH height in settings higher than any obstacle around you.

So yes, the drone crashed because of your fault to follow instructions and common practices.
Maybe go to an open field to practice!
Maybe watching a couple of set up or tutorial videos for your drone on YouTube might be useful as well.
