Crash! – FlightLog 03-01-17

Well it was a good run with the 250 racer but I had my first crash that actually broke something that wasn’t a prop. I was tooling around in my front yard to see if I had the expo settings to my liking and after getting a little too confident I lost line of sight and wasn’t keeping an eye on the FPV due to the fact that the sun was setting and the stock camera is almost worthless in those conditions when my quad met a 6′ wooden fence. No other damage on inspection other than the broken arm. There is this place in Irvine that does 3d prints and the files to 3d print the arms of the Eachine 250 racer are readily available. Why not see if I can have some luck sourcing my parts locally instead of having to wait for them to get shipped to my door?
