    Hi!
    I am still waiting for my Mavic being delivered and in Germany the weather is starting to change from sunny to rainy and snowy.
    Did anybody try to fly in rainy weather?
    Is the Mavic drone some kind of "IP X/X" certified?

    Thanks for your help,

    Ansgar

    You will void the warranty if DJI any signs of water are detected in the Mavic during repair/return, so don't do it..

    They actually have some paper indicators inside it so it's possible to track. so don't even try it

    Well, maybe IP30. We have a long winter here in Ireland too, wet and windy.. There will always be opportunities though..

    Sometimes in Hawaii, you get caught unexpectedly in the Rain.

    I have not flown my P3 in the rain but I did fly in about 40F degree weather and it was a bit misty too. The camera fogged up and there was a very light coat of moisture all over. Never a hiccup.

    Thank you all for your answers!
    It was just about, when i am flying and it starts to rain during the flight.
    I want to check my fields from above.
    But when i hear, that there are "humidity indicators" inside the drone, i think i schould not fly in unsafe weather.
    Thanks a lot!
