I was in NE Oklahoma over last weekend to see this Frank Lloyd Wright building erected in the 1950s. We did the tour and stayed in one of the hotel rooms. It's a very beautiful building. The green portions are made of copper and Mr. Wright intentionally used the copper knowing it would turn green. He wanted it to represent a tree sticking up out of the forest. As far as the drone, I was impressed that it stayed as steady as it did considering we were getting 40 mph wind gusts. See the American flag blowing on the building.

About 1:22 in the gimbal briefly reset which caused the shake.

I am continuously amazed at how tough the P4P is in conditions like this.

That was very surprising, I have been staying grounded with 25 mph gusts with my P3S .
I didn't realize that it could hold that steady with that kind of wind.
When the gimbal reset, I forgot you mentioned it in the post...I gasp thinking you miss judged and hit something.

The stability under difficult conditions is re-assuring, but you must have had a fright at the moment the gimbal reset itself.  Interesting building. Thanks for the share.

Dang, that's impressive video considering that wind!  I had my PS3 out this weekend and have come to the decsion that 25 MPH gusts will be the highest that I'll consider taking it out in.

@Amateur Droner & Blériot53, yes, I did completely freak when the gimbal shifted. I thought for sure the drone was going down. It was on the opposite side of the building from me and briefly out of sight. I was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief when I saw it come around. When I looked at the .CSV version of the log I saw during that time frame that gimbal controls reset to zeros before resuming their previous positions. The motors, speed, and direction of the drone were all stable through the incident.
