We launched a new Product for the Love or are PHANTOM 4 that we call the Phantom Rain Wet Suit and enables you fly your Drone in any adverse weather conditions.

We have an incredible response and are continuing to improve the system .   All those who help support by purchasing the unit are entitled to any free upgrades .

We are currently working on an inflatable surge mask that will help float the drone when it is in a 90 degree angle.

We have also posted a 26 minutes of the drone in a torrential downpour.

We took everything that DJI did to make it water resistant and we improved upon it.

The new Surge Ring that protects the Gimbal ring is now shipping with it.

@Coal Akida This looks pretty cool! You teased us with ALMOST dunking your drone into the water. Would be great to see you film that from the shore, dunk it, recover it and fire it right back up, without any cut scenes...

I've got some questions that came to mind after watching the above video:

Do you offer any replacement guarantees for drone replacement in the event of water damage?

What about the camera gimble? There is obviously electronics in the housing, yet I didn't hear any mention of how it is protected or if it even needs protection.

How well does it pickup GPS after being wrapped?

How does the rain affect the anti-collision sensors, does it even detect the droplets?

Hi, sorry for the delay :   its been almost 6 months since are launch and we have sold over 5000 units world wide I might add. 

We do have a warranty in place that is based off the DJI flight report.   We let DJI make the call.  So far no call have been made. 

We engineered and designed a Surge Ring now that protect the Gimbal ring ,  we made it .55mm thinner and just a bit tighter

The Neoprene has had no effect on the GPS signal at all this is do to its being only 1.7mm thin , 

As far as the rain on the sensors , the  sensors do not as you already guessed do not affect the Sensors or the props or the motors.

We have had several conversations working with the DJI team into the motors being brushless and how effective they are at withstanding water.

Are concern was not the water in the motors but just keeping it out of the drone period.

We are amazed at how much water the drone can take in 20 minutes and not get a  single drop in the drone.

Not only has the Wet Suit made a difference in flying in the Rain but  really any extreme weather such as freezing cold.   We can now fly in 20 below better than ever before because the battery is sealed better , 

This stops the cold air from getting in behind the battery and has made a big difference,    We also used Closed Cell Neoprene which keep the heat in bit more but in noway can heat the drone up enough to cause any problems.

Keeping blowing sand out of the gimbal is yet another added benefit that we have been thrilled with.  

We also found that the Prop covers lock in the props and make it more difficult for them to pop off as we have read many of incidents of that happening and thus the drone crashes , so this was another added benefit.

Last to mention is the landing Gear protection wraps protect the clips on the phantom and provide a nice 1 hand catch and release handle non slip.

If there is any negative its that not every drone can be protected .   We have had tremendous success with the phantom series 4 but we were not able to make it for the Phantom 3 series nor 2 for that matter. 

For those that fly the Phantom 4 , this was a game changer in many ways.

Here are some really nice pictures of the phantom 4 pro Black Obsidian:

Enjoy  I am struggling with being able to post any more pictures.   Had to make these very small. 

Thank you
