DRONE RENTAL POLICY AGREEMENT

Drone Rental Equipment Lease Agreement:

This Lease agreement between Lessor (Trenddr) and Lessee (current customer) shall be effective as soon as the Lessee confirms the order and makes payment.
A deposit may be required of the Lessee by the Lessor. Said deposit will be held by Lessor until the leased equipment is returned to the Lessor by the Lessee in good condition. The deposit may be used to cover damages to the equipment incurred during the Lessee rental period.
If the leased equipment is not returned or is damaged beyond repair, customer will be billed full retail value of the equipment.
Lessee agrees to notify Trenddr of any damage to equipment during shipping within 3 hours of receiving said equipment; if notice is not received within 3 hours then it is assumed the equipment was received in working order.
Lessee shall use the leased drone for private non-commercial purpose only and shall not fly the leased drone in public and prohibited areas according to the UAE drone flying laws.
Lessee shall return ship the equipment in the same fashion and packaging method as it was received and shall use the return shipping label provided. Lessee shall be responsible for missing packaging and equipment damage or loss incurred due to improper packaging for return shipping. Unless prior arrangement is made with Lessor in writing, if another shipping method or address is used besides the shipping label provided by Lessor then, at Lessor’s discretion, the Lessee shall be responsible for the cost of the return shipment, lost revenue charges, and shipment to the destination desired by the Lessor.
Lessee is notified not to fly the drone in rain or allow it to get wet as this may cause damage for which Lessee will be liable.
Rental period starts the day the drone is picked up or delivered via shipping. The drone shall be returned or shipped back on or before the business day of the last day of the rental period. Business day shall be defined as Saturday through Thursday. After rental period is over, late fees will accrue in the amount of the daily rental rate for the equipment. Optionally, the Lessee may purchase extra rental days and keep the drone for longer periods as long as approval from Lessor is obtained. A rental more than 7 days late (without prior arrangement via the “Contact Us” page) will be billed the entire replacement cost.
As soon as the drone rental equipment is reported “delivered” by Trenddr courier the responsibility for the equipment shall be considered transferred to Lessee. Lessee shall be held responsible for any damage, loss or theft of the drone rental equipment. Lessee is advised to monitor the package shipment and assure that someone is available to promptly retrieve the drone rental package from its delivered location to prevent theft or damage from the elements.
Lessee shall notify Lessor and send pictures of any pre-existing damage noted within 3 hours of receiving the drone equipment. Any damage not noted by Lessee as stated, shall be assumed to be caused by the Lessee.

Otherwise any damage noted upon return of the equipment will be assumed to be the liability of Lessee.
Lessee shall pay any fees for damages assessed within 10 days of receipt of an invoice for said damages. Payment is due in full after 10 days after receipt of invoice; afterwards a 1% per day late fee will be applied to the outstanding balance.
Any damage to rented equipment will be billed at market value of parts and repair costs plus markup. Parts will be repaired or replaced at Lessor discretion.

Do not fly out of line of sight

Do not fly indoors
Do not fly on cold soaked batteries (equipment left in the cold will not function properly)
Always give right of way to manned aircraft
Always be ready to override any automatic flight mode such as return to home, activetrack, waypoints, etc.
Always read and follow the Quick Start guide exactly before every flight
Always practice and learn to fly in an open area grass field away from people, buildings, and trees.
Always scout out your flight area before you actually start the drone. Take note of tree limbs, buildings, people, other obstacles and uneven terrain that may be near your flight path.
Always place black rotors on the 2 black posts and the silver rotors on the silver posts. NOTE THAT THE BLACK ROTORS ARE SCREW ON COUNTER CLOCKWISE.
Always fly in an open area over soft ground until you are comfortable with the control and operation of the drone
Always assure battery is firmly locked in place securely before flying
Always calibrate compass correctly (will not work in doors) before every flight
Always assure a full charge on batteries, wifi extender, and remote control before flight
Always land the drone immediately if any abnormal operation is noticed or an error message comes up on the FPV screen.
Remember that a drone flying up to 30+ mph has a lot of inertia and the forward movement of the drone will continue for some distance even after you have rotated the drone. Plan ahead for obstacle avoidance.
Consider doing an IMU, gimbal, and remote calibration if the drone seems to not be responding appropriately.
