    Flew low over a salt water river the other day and am concerned I got some spray in the drone. I took the bottom cover off and this is what I saw:
    Does anyone have a photo of there motherboard? Is this normal?

    Looks like it has had goop put on top of goop. Based solely on the two different colours of goop.
    Is your unit a returnee ?

    Now you should clean it all and start fresh.

    oops i commented in your pic thingy :)

    I'd fly the snot out of it and not worry about it. It looks like a sloppy factory application of heat sink goop. I doubt corrosion would take place from water spray unless you fly over salt water day in day out.

    What I've got is different coloured thermal paste (grey) instead of the traditional blue. But that white colouration is what has got me worried. It scales off with my fingernail like how salt water corrosion acts. I've got dji care refresh and I'm now contemplating whether I should send mine in under warranty
