A ZMR 250 that ain't afraid of no little rain drops. Or snow flakes. Or puddles.

I decided that I couldn't let a few rain drops get in the way of my flying, so I bought some epoxy and some Corrosion-X and set out to waterproof my ZMR 250. I started by putting some clear heatshrink on my ESCs, depinned D4R-II, VTX, COB LED bar, and FPV camera, then used the epoxy to seal the ends. I added an IRLazd Screwball antenna (which is already sealed) then sprayed Corrosion-X on the FC, PDB, motor bearings, and XT60 connector. I strapped my waterproof GoPro Session to it and did a little rainy day freestyle for the maiden: rain maiden
Then I took it in the snowy forest the next day:

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
