Hey folks

I see a lot of posts where people are buying skins for their spark.  Thought you may like to see something I whipped up on a 3D Printer.  I thought a translucent Top Cover would be something cool.  The only issue, is getting my hands on the little SD Card "SPARK" cover.  They are not sold separate, they only come with the purchase of a top cover, and attached.  I have tried to find them everywhere.  But alas I have come up emtpy.  I have even spoke to DJI Auth repair centers for broken top covers to see if they would sell me the tab.  But they would not.

But somehow, I don't think a see-through top would be appropriate for Phoebe.

Ha ha maybe not.  She is a lady and all, we don't want people seeing her internals!

Admittedly better than most skins.

Can you post some pics with the cover attached?

Hi,

Nice cover! Please be very careful for the first flights with it, since direct sunlight is quite powerful and can affect electronic chips inside. They can suffer a so called "latch-up", which can led to the crash of the bird.
I don't say that its necessarily so (I haven't closely inspected the internals of a Spark yet), but better safe than sorry :-)

Cheers,
Wolferl

Advice shall be heeded.  I am hoping because it's translucent and not transparent I should be ok, but I will keep a close eye.  I plan to take a temp reading with the standard white top after a full battery flight.  Let it cool right down and then do the same with the translucent top to see what difference there is

Its not about temperature, that won't change much with your cover, I suspect.
I am talking about bright light here, photon quants have negative effects on integrated chips.
