Drone technology is marching on, and drones, cameras, drone systems quickly become redundant.
Should I sell my surplus drone gear?
Depending on where you are in the world, charitable donations may or may not be tax-deductible, check with your tax advisor.
Some may argue that when you sell redundant gear, drone operating competitors might benefit and then compete with you on drone assignments, however, new drone gear will make you more capable and you'll be able to offer more specialisation. You'll need to consider whether having the latest tech will expand your business capability, whether older technology will hinder growth; all that depends on your business vision, risks and goals.
Who should I donate to?

The UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking to make up to $100K equity-free investments to provide early stage (seed) finance to for-profit technology start-ups that have the potential to benefit humanity through the use of drones.
If you’ve got a start-up registered and have a working, open-source drone prototype or service (or you are willing to make it open-source) showing promising results, the UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking for you.
Beyond Seed Investment, start-ups can use our drone corridor. Get exclusive access to UNICEF’s 6,500 m2 drone corridor with 500 meters above ground level located around Kasungu, Malawi. Application deadline December 2020 https://www.unicef.org/innovation/drones
