How to measure prop against winds?

Hi, 

I'm a beginner. I've read and known what the pitch of a prop is.

My question: Is there a method (or rule of thumb) about how to select the props to guarantee against a certain wind speed? Like: 9x4.7 prop can only stand 29 km/h wind (I made up the numbers!).

I need to know since sometimes my drone keeps flying away despite the autopilot's command to hover.

Thanks.

  • What a pitch gauge is going to measure isn't pitch at all. do the search with your keywords. definitely you'll have your answer but much careful.
