    Yep you can get critical battery warnings from it and if it's sea fog/mist it can eat your electronics. Fly through it quick and don't stay in it for too long

    It's not a good idea. Moisture and electronics do not mix well.

    Just over my farm and the sun it starting to clear it up.. Think I'll wait 30 min before takeoff.

    Thanks!

    Still waiting for a chance to fly over some low morning ground fog once the fall season kicks in here in the northeast!!!

    After losing my p1 after a week. I'm taking it slow. Soon though when I'm a little more confident I would like to do the same!

    I think I just figured out a use for the coming new semi-waypoint mode for our P3's. I can fly a course in advance and save it for recall later when I can no longer see the ground below due to ground fog.


    (Sorry about the loss of your P1. Mine is sitting lonely in a case ... I suppose I should try to sell it at some point ...)
