    I was flying my p4 and suddenly saw raindrops 5000 feet away. There were raindrops all over the front. it was working when it landed. Will it be okay?

    Remove battery, dry it off. Put it in a bag or a tight space with something desiccant, damp rid etc. Honestly I've been caught in light rain, and the prop wash pretty much blows it off as fast as it can go on, if it is a light mist I usually remove battery, dry everything off and pretend it didn't happen but I am a naughty boy.

    I am just worried about the camera, and not so much the motors. there was a lot of rain on the gimbal. It wasnt raining, but the clouds were really, really low so when i got to 450 feet i was inside the clouds, and going 50mph in pre-storm clouds can get a bit of rain on you (i now realize)
    next time i should stick to the rules and go below 400 feet :p
