The Pros and Cons of Buying a Used Drone as opposed to a New Drone

Professional drones with good GoPro cameras for aerial photography can easily cost thousands of dollars, so buying a used drone is a good option to consider.

Sure, it is nice to buy a new drone, but in many cases, the used drones offered for sale are “almost” new, or slightly used, and offer a deep discount.

Many people are receiving new drones as gifts.  In almost all cases, they will fly the drone several times, and realize that the drone they got is not the right one.

There will almost always be an issue: too large, too small, camera not good enough, not enough power, does not fly long enough, the software needs upgrading….the list goes on.

In fact, the market for used drones is similar to the market for used cars. It is huge.

Some drone flyers want to change, upgrade, downgrade or simply sell and get some cash for their drone.

Either way, a large percentage of new drones shipped in containers from the drone factories in China, end up on sites like Lucky Drones being advertised for sale as used drones.

If you are a drone buyer looking to save money, be on the lookout for drones that are advertised as “almost new”, “slightly used”, “used only a few minutes” or “flown only once”.

In all these cases you will get a drone that is essentially new, but you will pay the price for a used drone.
