    Tried this on my tablet, keep cool in the hottest weather no problem. lasts 3 batteries and reusable (for a while)
    I soaked it in ice cold water before I start. Tablet cool to touch afterwards an hour of flying.
    You can cut into small pieces and stick it on heat areas of phone or tablets.

    Ahah ... Nice catch. I used, 2 years ago, something like that for a cpu module in the field, but didn't realize a use for the phone/tablet ... :)

    Does the tape leave any residue on removal?

    This won't work in Houston. This relies on evaporation for its cooling and at 100% humidity you don't get much evaporation. Pre-cooling it in advance might help some...

    Good point. Hopefully DJI can optimize the code so the device doesn't have to work as had to render the video feed.
