    Hi all,

    About a month ago I crashed my P3S into water. Now that I've figured out what I'm doing about a new battery, I'm taking it out of the rice. I took the shell off after I crashed it so I could better dry out the inside but now I'm having trouble the rice out as there's some that sucked up a lot of moisture and became stuck in little difficult to reach areas. I have a can of compressed air and something that's decent for picking at the rice, but it doesn't seem to be helping much.

    Any tips? Am I safe to fly with a few bits of rice in there? It's certainly not a major amount but I've never gone through this before.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would leave it in there and not worry about it, but that's me
