Hi there!
I'm new to the drone world. It's been a dream since 2019 and finally I have a new drone.
Here's the thing -
I forgot to take the foam off the gimbal before turning on the mini 3 pro, it was standing for about 50 sec and then I took off. All in all it was 2:26 minutes in the air, landed straight away. Everything seems fine and working but I'm still worried.

Second thing is it was between 28-33 degrees Celsius, was it too hot to fly?

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum. It was two months before I found the last piece of packing on my first drone (peel off cover for the underneath sensors). Temperature should not be an issue when flying other than the effect of the less dense air. I would not let it sit on asphalt at those temps. Finally, there is a forum for mavics... looks like you found the Phantom one first. Again WELCOME!!

Thank you for the reply. Sorry :) I had no idea, I just saw general discussion so I thought it was for everyone :)

You'll enjoy MavicPilots.com it's a lot more exciting than us old @PhantomPilots. Stop back by if you film something awesome. Have fun.
Blocking the camera from moving during warm up can mess it up in flight, horizon etc. Happens often on grass or stones without a launchpad. If it moves correctly now, you should be fine. We humans tend to learn the hard way.
