Trying to fly a drone in Iceland? If you’re operating in the winter, good luck with the wind.
Wind speeds (particularly in the wintertime) in Iceland typically reach 30-40 mph, but it’s not unusual for them to get much higher than that. A storm in Reykjavik in December 2015 saw wind gusts reaching 162.4 miles per hour. And that’s certainly not an environment for drones to be flying in.
For comparison, the DJI Mavic Air is built to have a maximum wind speed resistance of 18 – 23 mph. Even a heavier-duty drone, like the DJI Inspire 2, is only built to withstand wind speeds of up to 22 miles per hour.
And that’s exactly…
