Can you fly your Phantom in the rain?
**** that sucks! I'm like you if it even looks like rain. I don't fly!After losing a P2V+ because of a little rain, I'd never fly in frain again.
I had a small shower come over just as I was bringing the P2 in.
I got it 20 feet away when the rain got a little heavier and I had to pause to wipe the rain from my glasses.
That's the last I saw of the P2 that day despite searching for the rest of the afternoon.
Rain got into the gimbal and screwed up things badly.
I only saw 3 fractured images on the screen as it flew off and they showed a lot of the landing gear .
It crashed somewhere and was handed in to the police and I got it back but after drying out and replacing the camera, it failed badly on the trial flight and now it's parts.
I also lost another P2 camera due to rain but it wasn't flying when that happened.
Rain trickled into the gimbal and it was not repairable.
