From what I remember you have to have the old owner request that his account be closed so you can register it with Autel. The best thing to do is email support or call them and let them walk you through the procedure.

Is there any point in registering it since there will be no warranty?

In a worse case scenario, I would think the seller would want his connection to the XStar terminated - more than the new owner. If I sold mine to someone who then did something stupid with it, the serial number(s) would link back to me.

Here in Canada come June 1st each UAV needs a registration number. You register the UAV and not yourself like in the US. So if you have a fly away, sell it or it gets stolen you have to let Trans Port Canada know so that number gets dropped. Unfortunately you cannot transfer numbers to a new UAV. Just a money grab from the government to pay for all this bull crap.

When I let a freind of mine fly my P4, I had him download the the go app, and set up his own account on his own phone. It basically just showed the drone he was flying, but that he was flying it.

Autel customer service changed the registration to me as new owner with no questions asked.

Glad to hear. If not, I would be reluctant about buying a used one.

I never buy used drones. I rather buy a refurbished one from Autel or DJI directly from them. I least you have some warranty in place if something malfunctioned.

I have an XSP that I bought new, but now I'm looking at a used one just for parts.
