As Chris said it can handle up to 10mph winds.. but if its gusting out, its not gonna be fun. I fly the FP on 3 cells, which it is supposed to fly on 7.4-8.4v.. the added weight of an 11.1v cell + the added power make it more capable in the 8-10mph wind range.

Past 10mph you are gonna have to get real high.. and dive back to you. I nearly lost my FP. The wind at ground level was low 5mph.. but at 40-50ft it musta been going pretty good. My heli was about 150yards away.. and I barely got it back, it was a fight that is for sure.
