Drones are powered by lithium batteries, and the performance of the lithium batteries will seriously degraded due to the impact of low temperature environment, resulting in insufficient endurance. Battery performance begins to deteriorate when exposed to temperatures below 15°C.
Below are some recautions for using drones in winter
Before flying, please ensure that the battery is fully charged and in a high voltage state.
- Please monitor the changes in battery power during the flight and reserve sufficient time for the return to prevent accidents due to insufficient battery.
- It is not recommended to fly outdoors in rainy or snowy weather to prevent water or moisture from entering the drone and causing a short circuit.
- If there is snow, silt, etc., on the take-off ground, please use the landing pad to help the drone take off to avoid snow entering the vents at the bottom of the drone and causing a short circuit on the circuit board.Moreover, the landing pad effectively prevents foreign objects from being drawn into the motors by the propeller power during drone take-off.
- Fully preheat the battery to above 25°C to reduce the internal resistance of the battery. It is recommended to use a battery preheater to preheat the battery.
- After using the drone, please promptly stow it in the storage bag.
