Just doing some tests with the Mavic 2 Pro to see what it's capable of under various conditions. This is how POI performs in high winds. Filmed in HD mode to achieve the greatest paralax effect. Been doing some woodlands tests, am blown away with the dynamic range and the ability to tame highlights with the 10-bit log files.



Thanks for watching

Just to add: this was filmed without ND filters as still waiting for them, if my memory servers correctly it was f/11 @ 200/s, ISO100. Really could have down with the ND Grads but overall the image quality isn't too bad.

Thanks, I was really impressed with the way it handled. The only thing is that it didn't keep the tree center frame, I think the old GPS spotlight method would have been more accurate... it would be nice to have that back as an option.

It did well, the wind speed was around 15mph and gusting at around 20mph.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

Does anyone know what is the wind speed limit which we should be avoiding?
Is 25-30 MPH wind safe to fly?

Very nice POI.
Thought the video was very smooth with the amount of wind you had.
Here is a short video of a Manual landing with the MP in the wind:

I don't know the exact speeds but you'd be surprised how well it handles high winds, the thing to watch is flying out with the wind behind you and then having to come back into the wind which can have get you stuck or draining the battery rapidly.

Cool, that's even windier than I flying in!
