I was astonished at the durability of Mavic Pro. Yes, I know I was lucky.

No harm was created to people or animal kingdom during this flight. I'm glad about that. But I'm ashamed of my inability to take the copter safely down in time. My only reason to publish this is to warn others that hard winds often begin well before the rainstorm.

Safe flying, friends!

Crazy storm and Mavic adventure.
Good job reporting!
Thank you, I will think twice before storm launch.

Thank you for the video! That was insane! he did put it in sport mode after the winds started pushing it away. As it was landing, you can see the water dripping off the craft. Truly amazing it flew with that much water blowing into the motors.
