Rain Rain, Go Away!

Day 14, cloud cover: 100%, rain: relentless

The UK is going through a seemingly endless rainstorm and it's making business for the drone community a nightmare! Bookings being pushed back. Forecasters haven't said much promising for the week ahead; colder weather and more windy conditions. A lot of people ask us about flying in the rain. Sadly almost all drones cannot fly in the rain. The complexities of the electronics and risks involved means that even if the drone would work, the risk of a catastrophic failure is huge. Windy days aren't too bad though, as long as it's below 20MPH.
