    I got rain on today with my drone, (only when I wasn't flying, and looks like it ruined my battery, I didn't think a little bit of rain would hurt my battery. Is there anyway I can fix this? The battery don't light up, ( when I check the power level) neither does it power up my drone. Plug it in to charge and no lights come on.

    First don't fly in the rain. Second put the battery in a bag of rice in hope of drying it out. Then try again.

    My guess would be that the rain leaked in around the push button switch on top of the battery. But the odd thing is that rainwater is distilled water and should not be that electrically conductive. I would not have thought it would have caused anything to short out.
