    There may be times where a tradition launch or landing just is not possible.

    I would only recommend doing this for those who have lots of landing and take-off experience with their P4. Do not attempt this in windy conditions

    It is in windy conditions you really need to do it! I live in mountain area with rough ground and high winds so I have to hand catch all the time.

    Hand catching it on a windy day is something I would only recommend after getting proficient at hand-catching on calm days --- but I agree that hand-catching on a windy day is a nice way to prevent a botched landing that can damage props, gimbal, camera, etc.

    great tips, also always wear safety glasses or good eye/sunglasses when hand hatching.

    I live in mountainous country too. I always hand catch and fairly regularly hand launch.
