PSA: Don’t fly your drone/aircraft in icing conditions when it’s not equipped with Anti-Icing equipment.

@sophie 😲
Is the leading edge damaged or is it "just" remaining icing?
Did you notice any changes in the flight performance or handling?

@INCO @sophie the software warned me about some issues with the propellers but it was quite smooth at all. And yes ists remaining icing.

I'm pretty sure that anti ice fluid would make it worse 🙃

@sophie Did you have some kind of clear air ice or did you fly it in clouds or fog?

@avia We had some freezing fog during that day. Enough for some ice to build up.
