No, I would not.
I hesitate even the slightest amount of rain, snowflakes and fog.
But hey, thats just me!

Hi, thank you for sharing this video here in DJI Forum. However, we do not recommend to use the aircraft in severe weather conditions. These include wind speeds exceeding 10 m/s (22 mp), snow, rain, smog, heavy wind, lightning, tornadoes or hurricanes. So we can avoid a collision, serious injury and property damage in the area. Please fly with caution. Thank you.

Great video. We don't get snow like that in Australia. Well not in most parts of Australia anyway. I am glad you filmed this though so no one else has too!!. Great video.

Your Spark seems to be handling it OK, but I am sure I couldn't. As Marcus_R says we don't get a lot of snow in Australia, but when we do you won't find me anywhere  near it.

There would have to be really good reason for me to do so.

Thank you guys. The drone wasnt even wet, im guessing the wind from the motors keeps the snow away.

Nope!  Not me.. your nuts...but that's ok...lol, we are all a little nuts.. but on a serious note.... flying in the snow is not recommended cause it's just water.. and you know that's not good for a drone.  Also fog has an adverse effect on the bottom vision sensor... so no, I wouldn't fly in that....

I flew my yuneec breeze in the snow it was fun I know they say don't fly in the rain and all but that was a short video im sure it would be fine. I covered up the vent holes on my Breeze when i did it not sure i would want to cover the sparks tho., maybe put a cover over them so nothing goes directly inside. it hardly ever snows in the part of the world im at so not sure i will ever get a chance to.

I would not do it either. I guess he disabled the obstacle avoidance because I saw another video of a guy trying to fly his Spark in less dense snow fall than this and it was constantly stopping because it was detecting the snow flake as an obstacle! lol!

Last time when I flew in such weather, Obstacle Avoidance not allowed me to move a metre. It recognized big snowflakes as a barrier and just hovered  for a while. Then budged just a little and hovered again.

I flew mine in similar weather for about 5 minutes here in Cleveland, Ohio.  The issue I ran into was that the forward collision sensor kept alerting me to objects ahead of me even though I had a clear path down the street.  I assume that the sensor was picking up the dense snowfall?

Correct, happened to me aswell on this flight. Next time turn them off. ✌️

Brave! I would have thought twice (or 3 times)! You got some impressive footage as a result though. Cheers
