    What do you guys use to cover the opening when the battery is out and you are storing the Drone?

    Nothing. I just keep it stored in a case with the lid closed.

    Why not use the cardboard box it came in?

    Nothing. If I'm flying the next day, I leave the batt in it. If not, I leave it open.

    Those battery connections will need some tlc if you're leaving them out to gather dust every day. Box it up and buy some DeoxIt to keep the contacts clean.
