So at what point does it describe how to "measure" wind speed? I see a description of how to identify whether the craft is having to maneuver to compensate for wind, but nothing that shows how to measure it (but maybe I'm missing it).

I saw the title and was a little excited. "A video from DJI that says how to measure wind speed, this must be pretty legit," I thought. It's about as accurate as saying stick your head out of a moving cars window to determine how fast your car is going.

The title is a little misleading, but it is good information to be aware of, especially if you are just starting out. Might save a few people from having a "flyaway."
I do like the fact that they are flying above/through clouds;).
