I have been looking at my TH. I have noticed that there are not any scoop type cooling vents over the main body of my Th. Has anyone else thought about this? If this is a problem with this drone then that needs to be addressed .
The person your talking about the 3d printed scoop was me. I have yet t install the STI style scoopI saw a post on this forum from another member who had 3-d printed a 'scoop'. The only issue I can see is that it may allow excess air into the frame and components like the baro may not like that as these can be quite sensitive to wind directly on them.
It will lose altitude because the FC "thinks" it is higher, so compensates to go lower; common problem in every craft using a barometer for altitude control. Been down this road before. There are parameters in Arducopter that can be played with to correct, but it is trial and error. A mechanical solution is most desired.Forcing air into the body will increase pressure which will set the barometer read off. It will probably make it gain altitude as it travels forward, since it will think it is loosing altitude because of the increase in pressure.
I don't see any scoop type stuff on other Uav's - brands that is, but the vents on the H should be enough to allow confection heat out , you are not always flying forward so I do not see how a scoop is the answer..maybe cutting more vents in the H -- I ordered a spare lid to see how it could be done and it doesn't look like a piece of cake without the right tools -- you have to cut thru the copper / padding and then add dust cloth on top of that -- Its over my headI have been looking at my TH.

Now there is an ideaSeriously guys, you need to diagnose the problem first, before you start on surgery.
