Lens condensation / warm to cold


Edited: Jan 16

Hello everyone, wondering if any of you have traveled try to fly in cold regions? And if yes, how cold? I recently had a little issue with my Mavic Pro as the lens started to fog in the middle as I guess a bit of humidity went inside (?).

Anyways after bringing my Mavic back into the warmth, I had the idea to let it rest with some rice 🍚 within the gimbal's cover to suck out the humidity & well.. it worked 👌


I wanted to share this little easy fix travel hack while on the go as I've seen some crazy stories out there making a huge deal when such an easy fix can work. I also remembered this one as I was writing a blog post about drone rules in Antarctica where I guess my fix (& my Mavic) simply won't make it there.. 🐧⛄


Wondering if you add any other tricks of if this happened to you prior?

Looks like the DJI Mavic Pro? I have the mavic as well and was fliying in the swiss alps last week, but I didn't had any problems. But thanks for the idea if it happens once.

Yes sorry forgot to mention, it was a Mavic Pro 1; it happened but only once to me, after the rice spa treatment.. no worries since 🤞

  • Traveling is my passion as I always like to see the dazzling and beautiful places in the world to have a fun time. I have made a resolution to see all the prominent places of USA. It is a region of 50 states which has many panoramic places to watch out. It is the land of waterfalls, valleys, deserts, canyons, Parks, Theme parks, beaches, Lakes, Village and Urban areas. I have explored many of its places and still discovering for more and more to get an ultimate travel time.
  • I decided to move back to Sydney, Australia in the beginning of April this year. Looking forward to meet any droners out there by then! One of my first priorities will be to get out there and shoot some amazing wildlife shots of this amazing country. I used to work and live in Australia a few years ago, so its more like a coming back home for me. If you're around, come and say hi anytime!
  • I'm posting on the behalf of @thomas_blanchard who shared with me this awesome travel hack last day! He is lucky to have a family member working in the hearing help industry & seems that Oticon hearing aids' box is a perfect custom fix for the Mavic Air 's gear. 🤘 I was trying to find a link to get these online but they don't seem available today.. A business idea in the making anyone? Have anyone have similar travel hacks ? 👊 You can fit on one side the 2 extra batteries (keep your third one on your drone) & your remote. On the other side, fit your memory cards & other cables for a complete set read to take off in no time.. In case you were curious for other hacks.. I looked into drone travel backpacks & shared some points to consider before buying one here. #backpack #travel #hack #case #hardcase #travelling
