    So, was testing out the FPV system I got with my F550 the other day, all went well everything looked great then once I got home I attempted to peel off the protective plastic screen covering the monitor and uh-oh. It was something like 35 degrees and the plastic cover has now melted onto the screen.

    I tried to peel/scrape it off without causing damage to the screen but all I did was leave a big smudge in the corner. Anything I can do to get it off? Or I just leave it as a permanent, melted protective cover that can never come off lol?

    Go to your local body shop and ask if they could give you a drop of panel wipe (degreaser) it will be mild enough to remove the glue and not damage anything. Just work fast with it as a precaution. I.e wipe off with a clean rag straight away

    regards

    Late response but I decided just to leave it for now as I'll probably have to send it back in for either a repair or replacement. It's been acting up, the signal breaks up a fair bit past 300ft.
