I'd like to use a breathable fabric (gore tex) patch to seal the BME280 away from water incursion on a drone. My concern is would the (speed of?) pressure changes through the fabric dampen the response time too much?

I've seen it used for a weather station sensor, but the rate of change there is not as critical.

A better idea would be to use a TDK ICP 10110 sensor. But I dont have one of those....yet. :D

A fabric patch might slow down response time for humidity, but barometric pressure and temperature should be just fine.
