last time i crashed my modded hornet I had floats mounted. They make the heli stable but very touchy when it comes too gusts. I think the wind that day was blowing at 20mph or so...not much fun to fligh in;

If the wind is constant it can blow quite hard and I'll fly. Maybe 20kmh or better. In idle up I don't find the hornet bad at all in the wind... it just jumps around a little on the gusts, at least it doesn't ballon. Landing can be a bit tricky if it is really swirling and gusty though. Definately had a few close calls flying in bad conditions.
