WHOAH high humidity makes my KK board not funtcion!!!

So today I went to fly my tricopter with a black KK board between some rain showers and discovered that it has issues with humidity.
When I try to boot it up, my escs make a beeping sound and when I arm it, the red light comes on but my escs don't work.
They are rctimer 30 amp, but I beleive it is not the escs because my escs on my planes do fine in humidity.
Yesterday I was flying a foamy and almost lost it in the fog, but no motor problems.
I know that it is the humidity because it works fine when I boot it up indoors, but not when I do it outside.

Is this normal?

it is most likely due to temperature change not humidity. The esc internal clock problably is shifting with temperature and changing the throttle calibration points. To test recalibrate esc throttle after you get outdoors and see if it works ok.

It can't be temp, I have been flying it outside in these same temps for a few days for no problems.

if it is fast beep 4 times per second it sees high throttle and you can try lowering throttle trim.

Could be. If they are seeing high throttle, then why hasen't this happened before now?

EDIT I just tried it out, and it worked. Thanks.
