Dynnex Drones – A Good Place to Buy Your Next Drone?August 6, 2018 4 By Scott Hinkle
With so many places to choose from it can be hard to figure out where to order your next drone. This post will be the first in a series, reviewing some of the various options to choose from. Why did I decide to start off with Dynnex Drones? Because this is where I acquired my Mavic Pro and I believe it is a good place to buy your next drone.

What Does Dynnex Drones Offer?
Dynnex Drones is the go-to place for your drone and drone package needs. They offer not only DJI, but Autel, Parrot and other drone brands as well. They focus on drones and larger drone accessories (such as DJI Goggles, Crystalsky and so on). They even offer the FLIR Duo and Duo R thermal cameras!
They have partnered with Drone U to offer all of their courses for a low monthly fee.
Dynnex Drones offers drone protection or accidental crash plans through CPS, a well-known device insurance company. The insurance offered is for recreational drone use only and will cover the drone, camera, remote, etc. (as long as it came in the original drone package – i.e. it can’t be an after market add-on). What isn’t covered is commercial use, props and so on. As for types of damage, pretty much everything is covered, crashes, water damage, failure, etc. The only catch (as with most insurance options) is you must have all the pieces when submitting your claim (i.e. losing the drone in the ocean and not recovering it or if it has been stolen will not be covered).
They have also partnered with Cross River Bank to offer financing for your purchase. It’s easy to apply and you get a response instantly. The rates are competitive and it’s just an easy way to get the drone you want right away vs having to move money around or save-up for the purchase.
Another financing option they work with is PayPal.
Why Choose Dynnex Drones Over Someone Else?
Frankly, the awesome customer service. If you have a question, need advice or just aren’t sure what to do, reach out to them via e-mail, phone or even on Facebook. They will respond to you quickly. I have yet to have an unsatisfactory response from them and I’ve done quite a bit of back and forth. Check out their Facebook page and their website. There have a ton of positive reviews (mine is in there somewhere).
I’d also lean toward Dynnex Drones if you don’t want to pull out your cash or use a card which is close to it’s limit. Check to see if you qualify for financing without affecting your credit. I used the financing for my Mavic Pro and it was a breeze.
They even have a great drone registration FAQ page that will answer most user’s registration questions.
When Should I Not Choose Dynnex Drones?
When you’re looking for simple accessories such as props, landing gear, etc. As I mentioned above, they are focused on the larger drone purchases. If you’re looking for the smaller stuff, you’re better off going to Amazon or Best Buy, etc.

Do You Have Anything Special for Us?
As a matter of fact, I do. Just follow the links below and make your purchase(s). If you spend $400 or more you can use my coupon code “Mavicmaniacs10” (no quotes) to receive $10 off.
You can’t go wrong with Dynnex Drones. With the great customer service, excellent package offerings, protection plans and financing options, it really is a one-stop shop for most of your drone needs. At the very least check them out and decide for your self. Ask them questions and check out the packages they offer. I’m sure you’ll find something to pique your interest.
Have you purchased from Dynnex Drones in the past? Interacted with them and want to share your experience? Did I miss something you think should be included in this post? Let me know by commenting below.
I confess that I am a novice when it comes to drones. Does DynneX Drones have models for a beginner, or are they all more high-tech than you would recommend starting with?
I had no idea there were drone courses or drone insurance available. Have you taken any of the courses? Are they very informative? Insurance sounds like a great idea, especially for a beginner drone pilot.
They do offer the Mavic series, which I would argue is a good choice for beginners. The technology included in those drones makes them very easy to fly and, with obstacle avoidance, more difficult to crash.
I have not taken their training myself but have heard good things from others who have.
As for insurance, I think it is a great idea. There are many types from simply covering your drone in case it crashes to liability insurance in case you damage someone else’s property or, worse yet, someone else.
If you do end up getting one, let me know what you choose.
As you said this post will be the first in a series, reviewing some of the various options to buy a drone. You start with Dynnex Drones, do you strongly believe it is the best place to buy a drone? I liked the protection Dynnex Drones is offering. Good to know that Dynnex Drones is not for those who are looking for simple accessories, a good advise.Thank you for sharing this review.
I chose to review them first as they are where I purchased my DJI Mavic Pro. I chose them for my purchase because I was living on a tight budget and they offered the financing option. I’m an instant gratification kind of guy so I jumped on the opportunity.
I believe they are an excellent choice based on my own experiences with them. They were courteous, answered all of my questions quickly and were able to get me my drone in a short amount of time.
They focus on larger items and packages and they excel at handling those orders.
I don’t think you can go wrong with choosing Dynned Drones for your first/next drone purchase.
