This was my most challenging flight to date. After trekking up and down over boulders as big as small cars for about 1/2 mile, I flew in winds of 16.2 mph with 22.6 mph gusts during the flights. I've since flown in much higher winds.

Additionally, I couldn't (didn't want to try) to land directly on the rock where I launched, so I hand-caught it. I hand-catch quite a bit, but I usually am able to move myself to the drone. On a boulder, I couldn't move. With the winds (blowing the aircraft and myself [while wearing drone backpack]), I had to navigate it to within reach. I did this for two flights. It was definitely challenging!
