Flying my DJI Inspire 1 over the town of Shek O in Hong Kong. Winds were very strong and gusty at approximately 50 kph or higher. I shot at both 1080 and 4K to give you an idea of the image quality from both settings. As it was so windy I thought the camera stabilization would be affected, but as you can hear the loud wind noise from the microphone on my camera recording, to the recorded footage from the drone, the footage looks like the day had absolutely no wind at all, it was super steady and in parts I was flying the drone across the wind direction, against and with the wind and at all times it stayed perfectly still even when hovering at 100m above the take off elevation. I was really impressed, if you're a drone or inspire 1 pilot and you're reading this, wondering whether you should fly your own inspire 1 in such heavy wind, I'd say just do it so you know what the limitations and maximum possibilities are, the flight speed was obviously reduced when flying against the wind but the inspire 1 is so powerful that it didn't seem to struggle at all with the wind. Disclaimer: I definitely DO NOT recommend flying in high wind areas WITHOUT the use of the Propellor Prop Locks supplied by DJI. www.oneskidigital.com
