Hey vladm, I am planning an ABS build. I will then spray paint it to seal it. I haven't sourced a paint yet, but will do so soon. The 3d printer will use a 0.007" nozzle and corresponding layer thickness, so the model shouldn't be too porous. I have had porosity issues with the 0.010" layer thickness.
I've used a paint called "plasti dip" before for marine uses. Its a rubberised paint so should be waterproof and easy to remove if you needed to split the case to carry out repairs. May be worth looking at!!!!

Well here we are in January 2019. Having read all the available Pixhawk mod posts in this developer thread I was left wondering where it all ended up or did it die a natural death? A lot of hours would have gone into getting some kind of satisfactory result from (Delboy, Arnie, Vladm) to name some contributors but final results & debriefing does not appear here. Is there another thread somewhere or have we all moved on to some other media platform whilst I have been sleeping?
Alternatively, wondering if the Splash drone has been deemed a lost cause, beyond saving from its' evil ways.
jefroe64: thanks for the reply. still up in the air, so to speak. I'll keep looking.

workevader: Hi, new to forums all together. Was wondering if anyone knows how to check to see if you need to update the firmware before you actually do it? Not sure where or how to ask this in a thread or whatever.

ocrich: Hello, I have a new sd3 and the 4K camera doesn’t work... dead. The other factory camera seems to work ok but often not at all. Seems to be intermittent. The 4K is totally dead, any ideas if it’s a software issue or camera issue ? Thanks

ambudrone: Wherever direction I push the joystick, the motor stops to that direction.
So if I push it forward then the two frontal motors stop. If I push it backwards, then the two motors at back stop. can anyone find a quick solution? THX

propwash: screnegar: I suggest you get the latest user manual and read it MANY times. And, read all the threads in the PRO discussion. Download the latest PRO firmware V2.3, install it and learn how to use the Flight Assistant software.
