    I had a catastrophic crash. I can't blame it on any anomaly or poor craftsmanship. It's due to bad piloting.
    The shell has been popped open and all kinds of warnings on the go app. Gimbal broke, antenna hanging out and a couple small cracks.
    I live in Whitemarsh Maryland, does anyone know of a quality repair shop on the east coast? Closer to me the better.

    Hello,

    Sorry to hear about your mishap. Any chance it is still under warranty? Maybe DJI can fix it for you. Also, there is a member here who has a good reputation here for fixing them. Look up @hunch , maybe he could help you out. Good luck with it. :)

    sorry about what happened to your birdie.
    i am located in MN and if you want me to diagnose the complete damage i can do that.
    the cost to do so is $50 and all i need is your bird/gimbla/camera. no battery, controller,charger,...
    once i am done with the estimate cost i will let you know and then you decide what you want to do.
    in worst case scenario if you don't want it fixed i will send it back to you at no additional cost and
    you will be down $50.
    let me know if you need help

    my info is at www.uavrepairshop.com
    or FB page Security Check Required

    yeah Jeremy and myself started fixing these kinda at the same time back in 2014 and we spoke many times and instead of stepping
    on each other toes we decided to come up with something like this. he has the western US and i have the eastern.
    of course he gets birds from east and i get them from west sometimes but if the person tells us where they are from we decide
    to send them to each other or not. we both got VERY busy as we both did hundreds of repairs each and have mutual respect toward each other
    and we even call each other when we are in a pickle or need a part and such.
    works much better as a some kind of partnership versus rivaly, just like you said your self other businesses who are after ONLY MONEY.
    @burlbark (Jeremy - usdronerepair.com) and myself want to cater PEOPLE. money came after as an effect of taking care of people.

    it's pretty simple.

    ;)
