Drone in the rain DJI Matrice M210 in waterfall

Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you.

Let us call this a new series here on the site, the Good Idea / Bad Idea series. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was funny and here it is.

Drone in the rain

Next up in our series, taking your drone out in the rain. There are waterproof drones, sure, but today we’re talking about using your drone to keep you dry, specifically, are you ready for flying umbrellas?

Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:

Good idea: Mavic Pro with an umbrella

Be forewarned, the DJI Mavic Pro is not waterproof, it can take a little splash, but I’d worry about the moist air in the motors and other electronics even without a direct hit. Anyhow, this dude has a system figured out, now he just has to tweak the follow me mode to make his creation more autonomous.

Good idea: use magic

Did you say magic? Why yes I did! I make no claims to the sort myself, but this magician (or is that just a company name?!?!) has a flying umbrella ready to rock. Unlike the much more stable Mavic Pro above, this one has some autonomy. Hurray for staying dry in the rain.

Good idea / bad idea wrap up

As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.

If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
