Has anybody pushed against the stated 10 m/s limit on wind conditions? Any info on the impact on the battery when you approach that limit? Are we talking of cutting flight times in half or just shaving a few minutes off? P3 arriving tomorrow but the winds are high so I'd like to know what to expect...
thx

If you're talking 10m/s sustained winds, no. I've flown in half that w/o issue, just make sure your first leg is into the wind so you can save some battery for your trip home. If you have no other experience w/ a quad, I wouldn't recommend it.
