    Mini 3 ICELAND - DJI MINI PRO 3 - Did it pass the high wind test?

    Hi everyone, I'm pleased to present to you my first film with the Mini pro 3, it has been such a thrill flying it last week - I'm impressed by the output for such a small drone. It held pretty well the harsh wind of Iceland - Not all the time but most of it :) Hope you'll enjoy it.

    DJI mini 3 wind question.

    Hi, I read on its manual that it can fly in 38km max wind, I wouldn't do that, but I was just told that I shouldn't fly it past 17km max wind since it can ruin its motor and its batteries. Is that true? If one flies his drone in... 20, 30 km wind, will it ruin the mini 3 pro motors and...

    Windiest City in the Nation

    Amarillo Texas is one of the 3 top windiest cities in the nation. When I moved here I couldn’t find one drone club. Then I called the city to ask about local laws. None. They acted like they didn’t know what I was talking about. Reality sinks in. Now I have an app called which pretty...

    Air 2 Winter flight along the Sierra divide

    Thought I would share a flight captured flying along the divide of the Sierra Nevada peaks along the Echo Lakes basin during the winter. I had some strong winds on the ridge that buffeted the MA2 drone during the ascent of what is called Flagpole Peak at 2:50 - 3:13. My original plan was...

Well, today (like other days I decided to fly the mini) was low wind, nice sunny day. I decided to take off from a coastal town lookout, the lookout was higher than...

    Lost mini in wind - 100% my fault!!

    Hi all, Last Sunday I used my drone to take a lovely pic of my daughters and I outside our house. It was very windy that day but, stupid old me, decided to gain some altitude and try to take a better pic. Long story cut short, I lost signal and never regained it. I have attached below a...

    Can MM measure wind speed and its direction ?

    Hi, I understand that blowaways are one of most common causes for drone loss, and flying in windy days must be very careful, that’s why pilots gets high wind warnings :). However, my experience is that those messages starts to pop up even with winds like 3m/s (according to UAV tool), which is...

    First I will start out that this was COMPLETELY my fault. That said, I was at the beach recently, winds on the ground at 10-15MPH from the east, This was the speed up to 1000 feet. I had looked up the data and knew this ahead of time. Utilizing all the lessons from other pilots here(except for...

    Wind Warning & Sudden Crash

    I saw a red wind warning this afternoon, advising me to land my Mavic Pro 2. I was in tripod mode and the drone was sat idling at about 20ft. I lowered the drone slightly and let it sit for about 30 seconds to see how the wind was affecting it. Suddenly the noise of the drone changed, as if one...

I would like to share my feelings with you, In my opinion the M2 Pro reacted amazingly in the strong wind, there were around 25-28 knots and the stabilizer worked perfectly. I have...

    MA drifting in little wind

    Hey guys, just a quick question. Got my new Mavic Air via DJI Care and all great until I noticed something this afternoon. Not sure if it is just me being overly picky or whether it is an issue. I was flying above my house at 40m and I noticed the drone turning in the wind without me touching...

    Chasing a windsurfer... SPORTS mode required!!!

    So last weekend, I went windsurfing with a friend of mine on the local lake. After a while I got tired and returned to shore, and decided to get the Mavic Pro out to film my friend. Winds were a bit gusty. Not enough to make flying worrysome, but it made it a hell of a lot harder to follow my...

    Why inceased power consumption upwind?

    Does anyone know why the power consumption in sport mode at full speed is about 15% higher (from radar readings) when going upwind vs no wind at all, even though the tilt angle is the same at the maximum tilt angle of 35°? Using the moving slab of air concept shouldn't the power consumption be...
