Flying mavic air that i got for Christmas over shallow water, "motor obstructed" "signal lost" went searching for it where the signal dropped out. Found it submerged in about 3 inches of (salt) water, along with a mangled and dead swallow, swallow blood went EVERYWHERE. Took it home dried it out. Doesn't go. What are my options?

Thanks

I would be inclined to bury it if it is dead. As for the Mavic Air, I would suggest sending it off to be repaired.

Unfortunately, salt water is almost a death sentence to most electronics, since it will corrode everything it can.
I am very sorry for you.

A picture would be cool in a demented kind of way. Also the flight log so we can see what a confirmed bird strike looks like.
