    I have but wouldn't advise it .I got caught coming back in from a run out and back and it started .
    All I had was water drops on my lens in the video .
    As far as it being water proof . It ain't .

    All the electronic components on the 2.4GHZ receiver, main board and all ESC modules are coated but the Naza and battery terminals are not. Even though 90% of the electronics are coated it is not a wise idea to fly during a rainstorm.

    I also have flown in both rain/snow storms and as Dirk has mentioned the P2 was dry. Depending on how hard it is raining the gimbal and GoPro camera are not water proof and could be damaged if you are using a P2 non-vision.
