Not sure where to put this so I will leave it here and admin can decide and move this topic to appropriate area later if needed.
Just wanted to share my experience with “FlyIcarus” drone insurance provider claim.I’m amateur drone user, flying for my pleasure.
Basically what happened it’s mostly my fault and some mixture of circumstances like damaged cable and sun glare. I wanted to fly and film some shots above the water canal where I flew before to get extra footage.
Cutting long story short I crashed my drone (MavicPro) into the water and it sank.
Made online insurance claim, filled up questionnaire of how it’s happened, had to upload flight logs and on Saturday I was paid £809,10 originally claim came up to £899 for the drone and minus excess of £89,90.
MavicPro is no longer on sale from DJI so that’s why I was paid in cash.
Whole process from claim to cash took almost 3 weeks.
On the top of everything I still got remote and one battery, plus spare props and carry bag.
So in my opinion it’s worth to have this insurance as they cover almost all possible situations.
