    Yep winter in Aus is not usually too bad though. Most weeks we usually only get 2 or 3 days of rain.

    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.

    Word I feel ya. I have to nano quads for rainy days. No tiny whoop and not fpv but they make me
    Happy on rainy days. Maybe once I get good at fpv I’ll get one. Until then I’m still learning acro and goggles and don’t wanna chop my kid or woman or plants up haha

    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

    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?
