Hello, All:

Yesterday, I was out flying my P4P and a pretty hefty sustained wind came up.  I noted that my P4P "tilted" into the wind while hovering and flying.  At first, I thought maybe an IMU thing (though the IMU was calibrated before I took off) so I hovered the bird, turned it around 180 degrees and sure enough got a tilt (into the wind) on the windward side.  Anyone know if this is normal (I don't recall seeing that action on my P3P)?  In winds, say 25mph+, is it normal for the bird to tilt into the wind, maybe for some compensation?

Thanks, in advance!

Yes, it is perfectly normal. The aircraft cannot maintain a steady horizontal position when fighting a strong wind, the only way it can try it to cant itself towards the wind and increase motor speed.
