How to find the Serial Number On DJI Drone? Well, all the DJI Drones have a serial number that is located on the bottom of the drone. The serial number is usually located near the bar code. While you may rarely need it, a drone's serial number can come in handy if you need to register your drone with the FAA or report it lost or stolen.

When reporting a lost or stolen drone, you will need to provide the serial number to law enforcement. The same is true if you need to file an insurance claim. The serial number can also be used to check the status of your drone's warranty.

The most common place to find a drone's serial number is on the bottom of the drone. If you can't find your drone's serial number, or if the number is unreadable, you can usually find it in the DJI Go app. Once you have found your drone's serial number, make a note of it and keep it in a safe place.

The exact place of the serial number on each DJI drone may vary slightly because it depends on the size and model of the drone. This article will show you where to find the serial number on DJI drones. So, let's get started!

What is a Serial Number?

Serial Number On DJI Drones

A serial number is a unique number assigned to each drone. This number is used to identify the drone and is usually printed on the bottom of the drone. It is a set of 14 characters made up of letters and numbers.

The first three characters of the serial number are typically letters that identify the manufacturing country, followed by a set of 10 numbers. For example, a drone with the serial number "US1234ABCD" was manufactured in the United States.

While the average person can't decode a serial number, law enforcement and other agencies can use it to track down the owner of a lost or stolen drone.

Why do I need to know the serial number of my drone?

Serial Number On DJI Drones

As a drone owner, you are responsible for understanding and following the rules and regulations for drones set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). One of these rules is that you must register your drone with the FAA if it weighs more than 0.55 pounds (250 grams).

When you register your drone, you will be given a registration number that you must put on your drone. You will also need to provide the serial number of your drone when you register it. The registration process costs $5 and is valid for three years. You can register your drone online or by mail.

If the serial number of that drone has been wiped off, you'll find yourself unable to register your drone and, therefore, unable to fly it. Besides registering your drone, there are other reasons why you might need to know the serial number of your drone. 

  • It is also a good idea to note your drone's serial number in case it is ever lost or stolen. If your drone is lost or stolen, you will need to provide the serial number to law enforcement so they can try to track down the drone.
  • The same is true if you need to file an insurance claim. If you have the serial number, getting your drone back or receiving compensation for it will be much easier. If you want to purchase DJI refresh insurance for your drone, you must provide the serial number when you sign up for the insurance. 
  • You may also need the serial number when you contact DJI customer service. If you have problems with your drone and need to send it in for repairs, you will need to provide the serial number so that DJI can identify your drone. Accidents happen, and it's always a good idea to have the serial number handy in case you need to replace your drone. 
  • The serial number can also be used to check the status of your drone's warranty. If you have a problem with your drone and it is still under warranty, DJI may ask for the serial number to verify that the warranty covers the drone.

Hi, my name is Richard J. Gross and I’m a full-time Airbus pilot and commercial drone business owner. I got into drones in 2015 when I started doing aerial photography for real estate companies. I had no idea what I was getting into at the time, but it turns out that police were called on me shortly after I started flying. They didn’t like me flying my drone near people, so they asked me to come train their officers on the rules and regulations for drones. After that, I decided to start my own drone business and teach others about the safe and responsible use of drones.
