Y6 Wind Tolerance

What are the highest wind speeds you've been able to fly your Y6's in?  15, 20mph?  I'm in windy MT trying to do some surveying and want to be sure I don't push the limits too far.

    Unless tress are breaking and falling over, the only thing you'll have to worry about is the amount of lean on the copter.  I've flown my quad in 70km/h winds and it was fine, just had a massive lean on it - oh and battery life is significantly reduced so make sure you have a battery alarm on the copter.

  • I flew in 25mph gusty winds over the weekend. My Y6 was quite wobbly, but I'm still in PID tweaking mode, so I'm not sure if my experience reflects that of other Y6 owners.
