I'm in Florida and it rains a lot.  How water resistent is the P3S?  Can you fly in a light rain or mist.  I wouldn't want to fly in a downpour but there are some times when it's very wet out, even just from the fog.  Anyone have any experience with getting their P3S a little wet?

I fly my p3a in the fog sometimes and it comes back with dew drops all over it. I have never had a issue. I have seen videos on youtube where people spray the circuit boards with some waterproofing stuff and land their phantoms in water.

Fog? No worries.  Rain? Just say no.
More or less, the bird will work quite well in moist conditions such as high humidity and such.

What you need to concern yourself about is the salt content in the moisture.  That over time can result in some issues.

Thanks for the responses - good to know.  I think I'll avoid spraying my circuit boards and avoid rainy times.  Fortunately I'm in Central Florida and the salt content of the moisture is minimal.

Rain X might help shed external moisture from the shell...
