A Guide To Drone Wind Resistance Levels

Wind Resistance levels that you will see associated to Drones are maximum levels of wind gusts that the device can operate in.

The scale is from 0 to 12. Where a Wind Resistance level of 0 is typical ‘no wind’ (or gusts of less than 1 mile an hour.) and 12 is approximately 74 mph.

Most drones (with the exception of kids toys and indoor drones) should have a Wind Resistance Level of 5 – 7 this would be in the range of 20 – 38mph

So it is essential that you check typical weather in the areas you will be flying.

The 0-12 scale is essentially the Beaufort Scale but always check the notes / ratings from your chosen drone supplier.
