Do you want to end 2022 with a DJI M300 Drone, a ROCK 360 (or ROCK R2A) system and the ROCK Cloud? It's possible to get this entire package for effectively $125 a month for the first year.

The Section 179 deduction allows US business owners to expense qualifying purchases and to deduct the full purchase price of their equipment during the tax year in which the equipment is acquired and put into service. The DJI M300 Drone, a ROCK 360 (or ROCK R2A) and the ROCK Cloud are considered qualifying equipment and this deduction can be applied to equipment purchased outright or via financing.

You can find more information about the Section 179 rule on the IRS website here.

Understand the Impact of Section 179 on Your Equipment Investment

To get an idea of what the Section 179 rule could look like for you, ask us for a quote and then use it in this calculator: Section 179 Calculator.

This calculator will show you the total reduction in cost and your savings. When you factor in the ability to take this tax break upfront with zero-dollar down financing, this effectively gives you the full tax incentive in the first year and is how you can effectively get the entire system for $125 a month! This is too good to pass up.

We have worked with customers and have seen Section 179 deduction result in customer scenarios with costs cut down to approximately $125/month first year and a $0 down payment for their hardware and software! Of course, your results may vary, and you should always check with your tax advisor, but owning a DJI M300 Drone, a ROCK 360 (or ROCK Robotic R2A) and the ROCK Cloud may be much closer than you think!
