Is there any one who has the experience of flying spark in light rain/light snow?
How sensitive is the bird to mild misty weather?
It's a week I bought a spark, all the time flying indoor! it seems the weather outside never stop being misty all the time !

it isn’t water resistant. I wouldn’t fly mine in those conditions.

I've flown all my drones in a light snow. No issues. Now I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing it though as they aren't water-proof. A local Drone-specific hobby shop flew a Phantom in a light rain/freezing rain and started noticing handling problems. They brought it in and found ice forming on the blades. Could have been a bad situation..

Electronics and moisture don't mix very well.

I haven't tried the spark, but will when it snows here. But I hear the Mavic is rather water resistant, with proper precautions. Look up the guy who flew his Mavic in the eye of Irma, quite fun stuff :)
