What to do if AirDog has been in Water
AirDog is not waterproof.
However, AirDog's electronics are covered with lacquer and the components are at least splash proof.
If your AirDog has suffered water impact of any kind follow these steps:
- Remove the battery ASAP. Be careful with the battery it could short-circuit. We don't recommend using this battery again. Turn off your GoPro and remove its battery as well.
- Rinse AirDog with fresh water ASAP only if it was submerged in salt water.
- Do not power on AirDog at least for 1-2 days. The best drying position would be vertical with camera pointing down.
- After 1-2 days, launch AirLoader, connect AirDog (without the battery) to your computer via micro USB cable and check if your AirDog shows up:
- If AirDog shows up on AirLoader then you can try to insert a new battery and see if it powers ON. If there is a start up tone, the LEDs light up normally, gimbal turns ON and then turns automatically OFF.
- Next you should test if all motors spin. To do this go outside, insert AirDog battery, turn ON AirLeash and do the Sensor check. After a successful sensor check try to launch AirDog without propellers. Check if all motors are spinning.
- If you have passed all previous tests you can try to fly AirDog normally.
