    I've got some video which when I've cropped and figured out how to upload to YouTube , I'll post.

    Once again I was dead impressed with the vision. The surface wind was 15-20 mph with occasional gusts up to 25. I had the vision rock steady in GPS hovering at about 10 feet into that strong wind. I thought I would try switching to ATT at the upwind end of the field and WOW ! , when the switch went to Att it blew downwind like a paper bag in the wind. In fact I had to quickly switch back to GPS before it blew into some trees.

    Then I climbed it to about 150 ft, were the wind must have been even stronger and she was still rock steady in GPS. These things are amazing !

    I was flying in the Everglades a couples days ago. Had winds of about 15-20 and the vision tried to hover, but the best she could do was semi-stationary at about a 25-35 degree slant (in to the wind). Not bad, but I was waaaay to chicken to take her up more than 20 or 30 feet. Seemed like she'd get blown downwind and I'd lose her! Looking for a crash site in a swamp full of gators was simply not an option...
