Haven’t been out much with my P4 lately, and now I’m grounded next few days with the strong winds. So it got me thinking. I know DJI post max wind speeds etc, but what are people’s real world experiences with flying in strongish winds? I know the tip re making sure you take off into the wind so you have enough battery to RTH, but realistically what are comfortable max wind speeds to fly (and film) in? Can you still cover a reasonable amount of ground into a 15mph headwind? I use UAV forecast, and I think above 15mph it says not good to fly. How accurate is UAV forecast in terms of those recommendations (guessing they have to be pretty conservative to allow for most UAV’s)? Also, I’m thinking of investing in a wind speed Anemometer (cheap one from Amazon). Any recommendations - do you get what you pay for, is it worth bothering? I feel it would be good to be able to actually measure the wind speed at my take off sites although I also appreciate ground air speed is generally a lot less than at altitude.
Have a great weekend all, thanks
