Anyone have experience with filing a crash accident?

Recommended Posts

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?

Ahh I misread it

  • Damage to any property, other than the small unmanned aircraft, unless one of the following conditions is satisfied:
    1. The cost of repair (including materials and labor) does not exceed $500; or
    2. The fair market value of the property does not exceed $500 in the event of total loss.'

I thought the unless meant that if the drone also was above the 500....well I will wait to hear from the FAA and let them know that there wasn't a need for the report as the damage was to drone only.


Thanks for the catch ;)
