    Has anyone tried this yet? Wondering if the moisture in a cloud would be enough to mess up the electronics.

    Not a great idea, keep it within visual line of sight all the time.

    Clouds and fog are basically floating rain. You will soak the motors in no time and risk failure while flying.

    I've seen a lot of videos on youtube of people flying their phantom thru the clouds...

    I've flown through some light mists over creeks without a problem but it is not a great idea for so many reasons. Think about even a momentary short circuit at 300.
