I had funky gyro issues when I first got my v929 and flew during early mornings, then I put a plastic bag over the rx and that issue hadn't re-appeared.
I read somewhere if you spray varnish on the board it will seal it from water. Being that varnish has been used for years for copper motor windings I believe it will have no effects whats so ever on the board. However, I have not tried it yet so I could be wrong. There are those who have used it somewhere on this forum though.
Note: WAS WARNED TO NOT USE WATER BASE VARNISH.
