    I made this video today to show the effects of wind on two different drones. The video is from the P4 and you can see how even it struggles to keep in place. I then flew a Blade Inductrix 200 and attempted to keep it in place. Despite my best efforts a strong gust blew it about 40 ft to the edge of the picture. I landed it shortly after the clip between gusts.

    Lesson: respect the wind. You can be a decent pilot and had a car gone by at the wrong moment, the wind could have blown the Inductrix right into a car.
