    Hi Everyone,
    Had my I1 for a couple of months now and everything about this UAS is great aside form the NFZs.
    My question is what the heck is the U-EVA foam used for. The DJI site says its for the battery but, where and why do I need it? Thanks

    p.s. Sorry first posted in the general discussion

    It is to keep the battery warm during cold weather flying.

    I have deleted your other post.

    Sorry, but I think we are talking about 2 different pieces of U-EVA foam. The 2 pieces of foam I'm referring to are U-shaped, 2 3/4" long, 1" wide, 1 1/4" tall.

    Ohhhhhhh.......got it. Sorry, thought you were talking about the battery insulator sheets. :)
    The pieces you are talking about have caused many a confusion and are totally useless - they are originally placed on the transformation struts (the thinner arms) when the Inspire is originally shipped to prevent damage to the thin carbon fibre arms if anything shifts in transit.
