    Hi
    Since a few days I'm the proud owner of a Phantom 2 Vision+ and already did some flights around my own house and near a river a few miles away. I'm getting more in control every time and I feel confident when flying with stable weather conditions (sunny and warm). Though I certainly realise I'm still very much of a beginner and haven't been in any strange airconditions yet.

    Now... in two weeks I will be visiting the south of England and want to bring my Phantom with me. (Actually it was an idea from my girl :) ). It would be awesome to make some great videos from the coast, but ..... what about the winds? Is it dangerous to fly there with normal weather conditions? When there is not a lot of wind and it would be an easy flight over an open field, how much different would it be to fly "over the edge" and up and down the cliffs? Are there a lot of tricky winds?

    Regards
    Gabrie

    Keep it in GPS mode and you should be absolutely fine!
