    It's likely not "Best Practices" but i have done it quite a few times, check out the video of me taking it into the clouds!

    If it's too moist it's really a bad idea if you ask me, and i would not intentionally do that because at the end of the day moisture is H2O!

    We Florida people have nothing but moist air. Especially in the summer. Most of my flights have been right have it rains (the time I usually get home) and some in little drizzle. Haven't had an issue. In fact I think it flies pretty nicely in the thick moist air.

    I've flown in fog, fact of life on the ocean. Everything was dewy but not an issue at all. Of course, I have plunged into a river and lived to fly again. That...was wet.

    I have flown in fog but in all honesty the worst crash I have ever had actually happened in thick fog and I am still not sure what exactly caused the problem. I advise against moist weather.
