    My experience is Aibao not handle winds very well. Especially the wind not in constant speed. I saw my one blown away by a sudden wind which not very strong. It try to maintain the position but keep pushing away by wind. The craft move back and front a lot and looks quite scare. I lower it to pull out from the wind and landed immediately. Suggest not fly Aibao when wind over 20km. Sometimes wind also affects the high controls and course it go up or down suddenly. Need to be very careful when wind comes.

    Tkank very much for you reply, it is exactly the same thing that happened me.not very strong wind (30/35 km) and not constant wind speed.the things worsed when I entered a controls command....(up down or aleiron left or right).
    Maybe it is a small craft....and every small craft react at the same mode....

    Check the craft when no wind to see if problem still exist. Just to ensure not hardware or software problems.

    My rule is not fly when see the tree top move. The wind above can be much stronger than ground level. Try going down when hit by wind as normally less windy when close to ground.

    That wind is too great for a Aibao to be stable.

    if you buy something like a Mavic Pro then it will be stable in that wind. But it costs 3 times the amount.

    Cheers

    Thank you for reply bjr981s i think Aibao resists better windy conditions when put in hovering than moving the control sticks up-down forward....etc...
    Yes I know mavic pro is avery stable craft and I like it...i' m waiting for the walkera Vitus that seems a good craft but in Italy it s not possible test it.....
