One Year Limited Warranty: Tyto Robotics Inc. warrants its products against defects in material and craft. Under typical use and service, every hardware portion of the products should be free from physical defects in material and assembly during the warranty period of one year, or the hardware will be repaired or replaced as determined solely by Tyto Robotics Inc. We provide a limited warranty for products only to the person or entity that originally purchased the product from Tyto Robotics Inc. or its authorized distributor or retailer. If a product does not operate as warranted above during the applicable warranty period, Tyto Robotics Inc. shall, at its option and expense, repair the defective product or part and deliver to the customer an equivalent product or part to replace the defective item. 

The customer shall pay for the return shipment of the equipment to Tyto Robotics Inc. for repair. Please contact us for instructions for how to prepare and declare your shipment. If the customer fails to follow our instructions, they may be responsible for any resulting duties. Tyto Robotics Inc. will cover the cost of the return shipment and duties if the repair is deemed to be under warranty.

Warranty does not apply, if:

This includes, but is not limited to, damage caused by: sudden motor cut-offs not caused by the Tyto Robotics software, equipment not being secured properly, deliberately operating the tool at the resonance frequency, and exceeding the rated limits of the product provided in the datasheet.
-The product was subject to Force Majeure, such as acts of God, flood, lightning, earthquake, war, vandalism, theft, brownouts or sags (damage due to low voltage disturbances).

Additionally, any overdue balances must be paid in full before a warranty repair is fulfilled.

If warranty coverage is not available, Tyto Robotics Inc. may provide a quote for the necessary repair services to be completed at the customer’s expense.

Support for Discontinued Products

Over the past few years we have discontinued several products to make way for new product lines. It is unfortunately infeasible to support these products indefinitely, so we have set the following end dates for support and repairs:

Series 1520 thrust stand: support ends on Oct 31, 2024.

Series 1780 thrust stands: support ends on Sept 30, 2025.

If you would like to trade-in your Series 1780 for a newer Flight Stand thrust stand, you may be eligible for a discount. Contact our sales team to request a quote.
