Hi,

do you clean your drone after every flight? how do you clean the dust in Gimbal area? or any tips for cleaning overall drone and what to clean?

Unless you are flying near the ocean or in the desert, cleaning after every flight seems excessive.

Just wiping down the body with a dry cloth, and cleaning the lens with a microfiber cloth as needed.

No need to meticulously clean it every single flight. I go through it when it needs it. Wipe everything down and compressed air for tight crevices.

i clean mine often.  Not after every flight, but it's pretty close.  It's part of my post-flight inspection.  I clean it with compressed air, Clorox wipes, and a small dust brush.

I mainly check and clean all sensor and prop after flight which important for safety. Other area just clean when needed.

you're right.  i would probably be upset.

i don't keep the cleanest house in the world.  My wife would attest to this.  But my toys are pristine.  always.

some days i just pull them out and clean them because i can.  I think i clean my guitar more than i play it.

i keep my house very clean, i keep my car..mostly clean...my GF wouldn't accept me otherwise.. but some stuff that gets dirty too often too easily or too difficult to clean properly that i just leave it be..

so i treat it like my ATV.. just remains dirty until either the rain takes care of it for me or until i have to spray if off because making other stuff too dirty around it.. how i handle my drone, only difference is i wipe the shell off before i pack it up.. i dont dig dirt out of it..
