I had not thought of that, but I also do not own a drone. I bet it would be scary flying a drone while in a cloud!

Scary, certainly!

Technically, you can't fly a drone above the clouds, and certainly not through the clouds. The truly scary part would be if the drone and a passenger aircraft tried to occupy the same space at the same time and they couldn't see each other. :eek:

Yes I was limited to a certain altitude to keep the everyone apart. I'm also running two Firehouse 1000 lumen white strobes.

It was weird popping out of the fog suddenly. The drone was also a bit damp when it came back down.

Interesting about being damp!

Yeah. I wouldn't have thought that, but it totally makes sense. Any concern with the moisture getting into the working bits?

Interesting about the strobes, I hadn’t seen them before but googled them there and they look good. Are they bright enough to be seen in bright daylight or is it more for dull situations or the dark etc?

They are seriously bright. Helps with finding the bird if it ends up in a tree as well.

I've been up through the fog a few times out in the backcountry. Seems to be ok with a bit of moisture.

Hi all

I have bought myself a DJI Mavic Air 2 and really excited to start using it. I have been doing the A2 Certificate of Competency and will sit the exam tomorrow.

I am a little concerned about LiPo battery safety and seek some advice.

My understanding is that the latest smart batteries are a lot safer than LiPo batteries in the past but there is still a risk.

I have purchased a LiPo safe bag and also a metal Ammo box.

My main question is where it is best to store the batteries? I was of the understanding it is not good for them to get too cold and my garage gets pretty cold.

However it feels safer to store them in the garage than in the house.

Any advice much appreciated. I have 3 batteries that came with the Fly More kit.

Many thanks

Paul

I bought myself a Christmas present of a DJI Mini 2 drone. I've been practicing with it for about two hours and decided to see how the camera handled a sunset in San Diego tonight. I am impressed!
