When financing a purchase, you almost always have to pay interest and once the financing is in place, there's no going back. With our leasing program, there are no banks involved and because of that, there are no fees or interest charges. What's more, at the end of the term, you aren't stuck with outdated technology. Simply turn the equipment back in, pick out the latest and great, and start a new term.
The right equipment. When you need it. On your terms.

Leasing ≠ Financing
Our leasing program is not financing. No interest fees, no down payments, no hassles.
Only pay for what you need, and that's the latest drone technology - not fees or interest.
BUY OUT ANYTIME
Buy out your equipment at anytime, and get back a percentage of what you've paid.
NO USAGE LIMITS
Use the equipment to get the job done with no limits on flight hours or usage.
Technology That Grows With You
Purchasing a system is a big decision. With the pace at which drone technology is moving, it can be a daunting task not only choosing the right system, but making sure whichever system you choose will still be supported in a few years. Leasing lets you set the pace - not the manufacturers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Leasing isn't new, but drone leasing is. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about our commercial leasing program.
How is leasing different than financing?
What are my term options?
The terms for our leases range from 3-36 months. We will consult with you to provide input on a suggested term for your chosen equipment based on the projected longevity of your chosen hardware.
Because you are working directly with us with no middle men, we can setup your payments however you'd like. Anything from paying online with a card (debit, credit, purchase card, etc.) or bank account to your agency's finance department issuing a PO and check each month - we will happily design your lease around your needs, and any restrictions placed on you by your agency.
What happens at the end of the term?
The short answer is, whatever you want. A lot of our industrial systems have and will be around for years to come. If that's the case and you want to stick with what you have, go for it. We simply draw up a new agreement and we're off and running like nothing changed. If the equipment you originally leased is now outdated and no longer relevant or supported, you get to decide what you lease next and the clock starts all over again on brand new, updated hardware.
Do I have to insure it?
Because we technically retain ownership of the hardware, we do require that you either insure the hardware through a carrier of your choice, have us provide the insurance for you, or provide proof of accepting the liability and that you will take care of the obligation as stated in the lease agreement. We understand that a lot of government agencies, utility cooperatives and corporations don't take out insurance policies on each individual drone they operate and that is absolutely ok. We will work with you to put together the necessary documentation that outlines what happens in the event of a catastrophic crash, or other things like theft, fire, etc.
What products can I lease?
Anything! Any product in our catalog is eligible to be leased. From the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual to the FLIR SkyRanger R60, we can pull products from every corner of our warehouse to assemble the perfect system or fleet and then structure a lease agreement around that. We can even include some software subscriptions in your lease, such as DroneSense, Pix4D, DroneDeploy and others.
How do I qualify for a lease?
If you are a government agency, utility cooperative or part of a large corporation, you are automatically approved! We still need your lease application so that we can build your profile and get the paperwork together, but that's it! For all others, we will work with you to determine whether or not our leasing program is a good fit. Bear in mind, because this is not financing, the requirements for leasing vary significantly from a standard purchase that you would finance through companies like Affirm, QuickSpark or PayPal because there are no banks involved.
