This is one of two main concerns I have had. I suppose if I put deep thought into how well the Mavic will do with wind is.....it should exceed the P3 & P4 respectively. The Mavic is lighter and smaller which should out fly Uncle P3 & P4. But I'm going to have to reach into my bag of trix to help with seeing the Mavic better at a distance. The older a/c's being white seem to show up in the sky for me unless it was cloudy.
