IMPORTANT: For DJI manufactured aircraft, the required serial numbers can often be found in the following locations (example shown for DJI Mini 3 Pro).

FlightController S/N

The Flight Controller S/N (FCID) is the DJI drone's hardware and internal serial number, usually accessible through the DJI FlyApp or Smart Controller menu.

Frame S/N

You can typically locate it in the airframe, close to or inside the battery compartment with an associated QR code.

Battery S/N

Usually, it's on the battery's exterior with an associated QR code.

In the event of a theft, obtaining device serial numbers afterward, if they have not already been noted, could be challenging. However, if you have retained any of the original commercial packaging, it might include the necessary serial numbers you require.

Alternatively, there are additional methods to consider.  If you have a .txt or .dat file from a recent flight stored on your mobile phone or computer, it can be submitted to Aerial Defence Ltd to extract the serial numbers on your behalf.  Please feel free to contact us for further help and guidance.
