    I rarely ever do this, as the P4P handles wind fairly well, and I'm willing to take risks, but I was going 9 miles/hr in sports mode, and in a cross wind being blown steadily off course. The Kittyhawk forecast said 10 mile/hr winds with gusts to 14, and a low variance, so hard to get accurate wind reports. I wonder, do the low noise props fair any better in high gusts?
