Flew my spark for the first time in awhile today in an open field.  After I brought it back in to change battery I seen all kinds of bug guts all over the body and gimble.  My question for everyone is how do you keep the bug guts off your drone while you fly?  I ended up flying my mavic air and didn't see any when I was done

I never noticed it flying the BLUE spark, but the YELLOW one gets really yucky.

I just wash them off now and then with a wet paper towel.

A little bug guts just proves that you are actually flying!

In model railroading, we call that "natural weathering."

Can those bugs get into the cooling path?

I cant say Ive ever had the problem,  but I'd start with a damp cloth or damp kitchen towel to remove them.

You don't clean the bug guts off, you leave them as a warning to the others that have yet to enter the blender.

Do white cars get dirtier than black? No, they both get equally as dirty but you can see the dirt more on a white one. Other than flying in a cooler climate there is obviously no way of stopping insects smashing into your drone during flight. Take a damp cloth and wipe off the remains - especially from the props so that the blood and guts don't unbalance them.
