Hutch: Problem I have here in East Texas. After May, gets so damn hot, that I am working 7 days a week, in the ac business. Then come this time of year, winds start blowing, and our field faces north and south. Wind off the Gulf or wind from Dallas area. Seems like eace weekend, wind will be from 15 to 30 mph. I have had to learn the heli deal, during windy weather, and really, once you get used to it, ain't no big deal. Stop and think about it, wind is what makes you fly. I can't tell you how many times I have gone to the fly field, and all the guys are sitting around, will not take off. Keep in mind, average age is probable 55. I fly in it, regardless of speed, up to about 30. Easier to take off, and easier to land. Little rough up top sometimes, but so what. fun is fun. When it comes to helis'', they love it, transition to forward flight, point it into the wind, and gain 30 feet in no time and go for it. Land into the wind, Piece of cake.

Honey, where's the check book, it's Fedex again

You could actually fly that at my field, up to april. Got plenty of wind. Keeps most of our guys grounded every week end. Shame, they could take off in half the run, and land like a feather, if they would just try.

its best in a steady 7mph breeze actually....nothing huge. freestyle is all about controlled stalling.
