Is there a way to weather seal a DJI Mavic so you can fly in light rain?

Not sure, but I'm pretty sure, rain will seriously cut down on your drones range too.

Water + electronics, what could go wrong?

That would cut down the range by a large amount

Isn't this just asking for trouble?

:agree:  exactly.  Why would you fly a sensitive piece of electronics in wet conditions?  

Be smart, be safe.  Just my 2 cents.

Flying your drone in any rain just isn't smart.  All it takes is just one motor to malfunction from the water and it's going down.  And if you are around people, that might not be good at all.  When it rains, I park mine.
