what needs to be used to clean body and blades ?
Just something simple will do it. Try a wet paper towel or baby wipes.
Do you have experience with sea mist (salty)? I believe my motors, including the ones driving the gimbal, won't last too long..
Even when there is not that much in the air, after a flight the drone body and propelers are kind of wet / sticky
I personally would not fly my Phantom through salty sea mist. That's most likely going to eventually eat through the metal on your Phantom. If you must fly in those locations, you might want to look into protecting those parts with something like Corrosion-X.
...careful, I think I remember a thread that found the anti-corrosion spray may cause more problems than it solves! - poke around in the archives for waterproofing phantoms...
Why do it then ?
I did not know that salt evaporates

One of my favorite subjects is by the beach, a place where I grew up.
It probably doesn't (at least at normal temperatures), but tiny cristals are carried away with the water droplets (any mist or clouds aren't vapor anyway, just tiny drops).
Local Harley or motorcycle shop has a spray can of Plexus that is good for plastics and getting bugs off their motorcycle windshields. Makes it easier to clean later too. I use it on the hard carrying case too.
Yup baby wipes works great on many things, try it on the bugs on your car and see how well it works. No harsh chemicals ( I hope not there for babies)
I use Armor All cleaning wipes and their protective wipes. The protective wipes seem to make it easier to remove the bug strikes.
use baby wipes on my Phantom and show car.. very safe !
After cleaning, I suggest a quality car wax applied to your drone. It improves flight drag and makes cleaning a lot easier.
I used to wax my Cessna 150 and it increased speed by 10 knots.
