Hi all, I have recently had to submit to the FAA that I had a crash because the damage to my drone and equipment was more than $500. They originally ask for pretty general information and I got a further email saying they may contact me for more info. Just seeing if anyone has had experience with the process beyond the initial filing?
Newbies only!! OK, so we have our FAA certification, that doesn't mean we know how to physically fly a drone. There is still plenty to learn. It seems so simple at first. I found that flying my drone in my house or yard was easy. But, when I tried to do the certification flight for UAV Coach, I discovered that "easy" disappeared from my vocabulary.

Part of building them is crashing them. I had a motor separate on my hex and lost a prop. She did OK until I tried to move her a bit further away from my car. Started oscillating and then flipped. Fell from about 80' with a massive 10,000mah 4S battery on board. So she hit the ground hard (thankfully not my car). The gimbal, GoPro 3+ and landing gear were a total loss, rest was fixable with spare parts I had on hand. Picture was my attempt at some hobbyking crash cash.
