Well, I don't have one of those bad boys, but we can rely on weather.com for the current weather conditions.

I just got back from attempting to fly in the winds we are having here in southern California. Attached is a screen shot from weather.com

I have to say, I really was not going to try to fly the X350 in these winds. It just did not seem to make sense. And really it does not. The winds this morning were pretty crazy to fly in.

The heli did what is was designed to do, fly outdoors. I can now fly my X350 with the confidence of knowing that I don't need to worry about flying outdoors in reasonable conditions, like 5-10 mph winds or less. I would never attempt to fly in conditions like today again. For the simple reason that it really is not fun. But it can be done.

As soon as I get a chance I will upload the video later today. Unfortunately I had to put the camera on the tripod and try to keep the heli in view. So the video will be short. I did not have a camera man...LOL
