    Hey guys, I was doing some testing yesterday with my H and flew in some pretty windy conditions. I noticed that when flying in turtle (the slowest speed setting) the wind overpowered the drone and gave me far less control. When I was in rabbit (fastest speed setting) it handled the wind with no problem. Anyone else experience something similar?

    Yes in turtle mode especially in high winds you will have a more sluggish control over the craft, in those circumstances you can use rabbit mode especially if you are near any obstacles and you need to move quickly away from avoid a collision, but in any high winds situation its best to avoid trees and buildings in either mode.

    Mine stays in rabbit mode. Unless I'm trying to get a shot in close quarters.

    I usually fly in rabbit mode. Had the h in some pretty windy conditions and it flew with no problems at all. Very stable.

    Yep, it does fly well in strong winds.
