The best quadcopters for windy conditions


The wind is the main enemy of the quadcopter. With the possibility of high-quality protection from rain and dust, even from obstacles, the only problem is the wind. Moreover, depending on where you live, you have to adapt to the weather conditions. For professional pilots of quadcopters (yes, yes, there are some), the capabilities of the device are especially important, because, in fact, work depends on them. Of course, you need to understand that you won’t be able to fly 365 days a year, this is not even given to airplanes, and there is no point in getting upset about this. But what you should definitely do is to choose a quadcopter with special care. It is its characteristics and capabilities in windy weather that will be the decisive factor.

Therefore, we looked at various options and found several models of quadcopters that are the least afraid of the wind.

DJI Inspire 1

This quadcopter has become the best for windy weather for a reason. This is a device with a good quality build, accurate sensors and excellent capabilities, especially during the wind. In severe weather conditions, the wind resistance is 10m/s. The second generation, namely the Inspire 2, also has good performance, but it is the first model that takes the first place. Why? It is equipped with a smart system that allows you to control the device by pressing / dragging. In Attitude mode, during strong winds, the device is even able to use the wind to increase its own speed.

Overall, the DJI Inspire 1 is an ideal model for beginners who are not used to “flying” in windy conditions, or for those who are not confident in their abilities. In any case, during strong gusts of wind, this quadcopter will hold its course.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro

Surely he would be the first choice of the majority. This series of devices with each new model improves performance and flight quality more and more. The Phantom 4 is also a great model that can outperform many competitors, but it is the Phantom 4 Pro that can withstand the wind like no other. In the readings of GPS sensors, it is much more accurate, which is still difficult to find an explanation for even the most sophisticated professionals. Plus, the takeoff and air hold capabilities of this model are more advanced than the standard version.

The only thing that can ruin the experience of flying with this quadcopter is the number of notifications that come to the smartphone. You are warned about too high wind speed, despite the fact that the quadcopter can handle it well.

DJI Mavic Pro 2

Yes, this is again a model from DJI and there is a very obvious explanation for this. Over the years, the company has honed its skills in the production of drones so much that it is their products that outperform competitors in all respects. The DJI Mavic Pro 2 was no exception. This quadcopter can withstand wind speeds of 24 m/h and has a resistance of 38 km/h with absolutely no problems. In a word, with a moderate wind, such a quadcopter will cope with the task, but with a strong wind, you should think before you go outside with it. Too sharp gusts may well turn the device over and cause it to fall. So the main thing is to know the measure.

Remember that the main rule when flying in windy conditions is to know exactly the characteristics of the quadcopter and use the wind to your advantage where possible.

Many drone owners worry when they have to work in the wind, however, the only way to get rid of this fear once and for all is to try to control the device. First, with a weak wind, and then with a more dangerous one. In addition to controlling the quadcopter itself, you will undoubtedly face a number of other problems. The device will lose charge faster, so be sure to pay attention to the battery gauge, otherwise the device may fall and be damaged. Although most modern quadcopters are equipped with a return function, it can also fail if you are not careful.

Practice and attention in this sense will be the best allies.
