Yeah, it sucks sometimes waiting for the weekend and then its rains. Having a tiny whoop or something small like that will help you improve your fpv skills, also suffice when its raining or snowing outside.

It will be fine, I chase my kids all around the yard with my brushless whoop. It doesn't hurt them when I hit them with it. I purposely try to tag my 6 year old in the back with it, he loves it! :D
Yeah, my little guy has played king Kong when I harassed him with my whoop...good times!

its been raining here daily for two weeks. i just rebuilt the 5" and charging batteries... I've got storms going by on both north and south but i might get some time in before the grass gets wet again. i did the conformal coating this time but.... wow that takes trust letting it get wet.
i hope you get to fly soon. 15288384420101513229760.jpg

If you got the MG Chemicals one, you can hit it with a blacklight to check for coverage.

i did and i don't see any gaps, i also sealed all the esc covers (didn't formal coat esc but they are shrink wrapped and cased) shows up great with UV light. I'm rather confident but not much of a gambler. my fear is ending up in the lake so I had to give it a shot while the stack was split.
got two batteries in before it rained. neighbors up the street are moving in with a truck marked "college hunks moving"... i absolutely had to get that shot and distract them... right?
