I got 7 flights in back to back today...just fuel and fly, then repeat! As soon as I got to our club, I could see the bay was covered with white caps. Wind was strong but from the NW, not really shifting. As a plank flyer also, I can say it's comforting to know a 90 size heli can muscle through and still track well in the wind.

I had my 50 out last weekend, breaking in my new os 50hyper. It was definetly gusting 20-25mph winds all afternoon, and no other fellow rc fliers in sight. 3D is much more extravagant in the wind

When i was starting out in r/c helis I had to get my fix no matter what the weather. Some times the wind would be so strong that after taking off it would take me the rest of the tank just to try to land the thing without damage. I would recomend it to any one, it speeds up the lurning curve big time. now the wind poses no problem. infact it makes it more fun/harder, especally "pie dish" , trying to keep it neat in strong wind is a chalenge.

will work for fuel

'pie dish'
Wilco1,

I remember the first time I heard the word
'pie dish....I was reading a UK rc heli magazine....
thought it was a new maneuver I didn't know about....lol I found out it was a 'funnel'

cheers

Yes, the 90 will hold its own... I flew mine about 2 weeks ago in 30mph gusting to 35....She bored right through the wind...
Took almost full pitch to head in the wind but it was still very stable

Hmmmm,
I was gunning my 50 in some silly strong winds...
It was deceptive as the wind was comming over the hill behind and missing me, but heck i knew about it when i met it!!
I was trying tic tocs and it was basically -
Pull back, battle for about 2 minutes to gain 10 foot and then bam... its 100ft forwards...
Then it was a good 10 minute battle to get her back...
Flips were just disgusting to watch so i landed and called it a day

Awsome fun though lol...

But i seriously do fly rediculously high
At least 8 crashes heigh

wind
SkateFreak,

When it's windy, try doing your maneuvers with the wind at 90 degrees to the nose, you won't blow back so much etc....the blade disk is like a big umbrella.
