Here in the Carolinas we are expecting massive rainfall this weekend and flooding.  I'd like to video flooding events.

What can I do to protect the craft from rain?  Is there a spray on waterproofing of some sort?  Has anyone experience in flying the Inspire in significant rainfall?

Thanks,
Czyka

Personally, I stop flying as soon as I feel a drop of rain. The motors are wide open and I will not willingly risk a crash or worse.
I live in Florida where it rains a lot too.
Just my opinion.

The inspire is not your bird for flying in wet conditions - As stated above, motors are open as well as the electronics.
There are UAV that can handle moderate to even heavy rain, but at considerable cost.

If you want to fly in rain, I would suggest purchasing an entire other UAV/Drone that is water proof.
