Is it a good idea to cool the VOXL Flight with a small fan? Let's assume it's in an enclosure which is not with open vents but not sealed. We noted both the flight controller and companion computer run pretty hot. What is the ideal operating temperature for these devices? Does operating at a higher heat affect the sensors or board in any way?
Yes, it is a good idea to cool the Voxl-Flight with some sort of cooling device.
We have not performed comprehensive environmental testing, but for Voxl 0-55C Ambient, Guaranteed by Test. Enclosures or other structures which raise the ambient temperature will impact this range. The performance will be better with cooler temps.
Hope this helps
