AR Drone 2.0 in High Winds

With all the sensors on the AR Drone 2.0 it does a great job of handling high winds…but it’s not perfect. Here you can see that with moderate wind the drone struggles to recover from a flip:

Notice how it’s tilted for most of the flight. This is the drone’s auto correction that makes it so that I just need to tilt the phone to get it to go where I want to go. If I keep it in autopilot it will just stay tilted to continue to fight the wind. This could be advantageous if you’re looking to record something and put the drones back towards the wind.
