Registered with FAA Then Did First Flight of 2016

I mentioned previously that I have not flown since last year. This is partly because of the new FAA registration rules (not wanting to be on a public database), irate bystanders, and of course winter. I finally decided to register with the FAA and power up my birds.

First off I wondered if my 250 racing drone even worked. I had crashed it in the snow and wondered if the electronics were fried. I just did some light hovering in the back yard with a little strafing of the grass. It seemed to be fine. I did have one small crash landing in the grass.

I was looking at the 250 and getting ready to fly it again when I realized that the FPV transmitter antenna was gone.

I searched around the crash site and found it. Even if I was able to solder the antenna back on, I doubt the transmitter will work. I bet it is fried.
