Hi everyone,

my drone got stuck on a tree last night and had to stay up there until this morning at a temperature 0C. Im worried that there might be moisture in the battery or the drone, so I removed the battery. Do you have any suggestions on how to remove any excess moisture?

Thanks

Did it rain? If not, it shouldn't have drawn enough to hurt it any. Just let it set out of the case for a day or so, maybe put it in a room with a dehumidifier. Should be ok.

I like to submerge electronics in bags of uncooked rice after exposed to water. I've saved more than a few iPhones this way. Though, I'm not sure how the starch would affect something this sophisticated.

Fortunately, it did not rain. The battery seems to be working fine, i will give the drone a couple of days just to be safe. The drone itself also seems to be fine, not even any cratches, so i hope the gimbal will be okay too.. Will keep you updated.
