Anyone know what the cooling fan is for on the Inspire 1?

    There is a small cooling fan just under the front top of the canopy.

    Obviously something runs hot and DJI considered that normal airflow was not sufficient (that's a scary thought for something airborne with a LOT of airflow over it) :eek:

    I have never seen this on ANY multirotor before including large heavy lifters that haul Dragons or Mysterium-X's.

    Can anyone throw some light on this?

    Probably the lightbridge transmitter. The stand alone lightbridge has a fan in it too.
