    Flying my Mavic Air 2 in the Rain!

    I was at the beach a couple of weeks ago flying my drone and it started to rain. The Mavic Air 2 is not waterproof; I would not recommend taking it up in heavy rain. However, in my case, the rain was very light, so I felt ok flying it around a little bit. It was fairly windy, so some of the...

    Buying a Mavic Flown in Rain? GPS Issues

    I live in Central America and have found a guy selling his DJI Mavic for less than half the price of new (they are expensive down here ... about 30-40% more than in the US). Problem is he says he flew in light rain for a short time (just enough to get it back to him, so a few minutes...
