    How does everyone think it will do in the wind? I rarely give wind a thought with my P4 and Inspire 1

    I wonder this too, coco soldering it's light. But the instructions do say 25mph wind. How much can the Phantom 4 handle?

    I wouldn't worry about that, as the Mavic is a pretty small drone. The only time I ever had problems with the wind with the P3 was in the beginning when I had those god-awful prop guards attached - and that's because they gave the drone a significantly larger surface area for the wind to grab. The Mavic is much smaller, and even though the motors are less powerful, they should easily cope with "normal" wind speeds.

    Good points all. I'm a little bummed about the Mavic.
    If DJI keeps coming up with this cool stuff, my kid will never go to college! ;)
