Just in time for the bank holiday rain
Nice collection there Howard, shame about the forecast I was hoping to get out this weekend too for a bit of acro practice
Looks like the wind and rain combination could make it difficult Steve.
Fingers crossed for the weather forecast to be incorrect.
Absolutely Howard, hope you manage to get your new toy out for a test flight
Fingers crossed mate. Hope you get to practice too
The rains stopped just gotta workout how to set up the crossfire module on the jumper t
Haha I’ve thought about using a coating like that but figured it wouldn’t be good for heat dissipation. Does it work ok? I’d love to be able to go out in the rain when no other bugger is about
I haven’t used it yet. Lol main thing that put me off was you need to be happy that you’ve finished upgrading as once coated I’d imagine it would be a pain in the arse to solder to it as you’d need to clean off the coating.
Lol yeah I would imagine it is. Some kind of alcohol rub might work? Isopropyl maybe? The other thing I was thinking is if you’re flying over a field with wet grass and crash this may stop something shorting out
That’s more it’s intended purpose if you was going to fly in the raid you’d need to coat any exposed boards and solder joints.
I would love to have the balls to fly in the rain lol Sadly I barely have the balls to fly in the sunshine at the moment Confidence will come with practice lol
Nay, it burns off with a hot soldering iron
Good to know
Its not the electrics you need to worry about. Quad electrics are ok with a bit of wet. It’s the fpv cam. It clouds up in no time
