Heli landing in wind
I was flying my trex 700 in 14 to 16 mph wind. I landed and started walking to get it the wind blew it over blades still spinning. Do I need to keep the nose into the wind?

The wind could blow it over no matter the direction if you don't have sufficient negative pitch in the spinning blades when it is on the ground to hold it down. I guess the side profile of the canopy could get caught by the wind but it is still quite aerodynamic even from the side. As a habit though, I always land my helis into the wind as I started rc flying planes for many years.

Try when you land to bring it to zero pitch or a hair negative and let it spool down.
I would think if the wind is high enough to blow it over sideways without the blades spinning ,,land into the wind!! Or not fly! A crazy fbls unit I suppose could do it too. Do you have any problems in calm weather??
Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Always throttle down before approaching your heli.

I'll bet it was fbl
I'd call it a combination of wind interference with the flybarless and ground resonance.

In high wind you need to "fly it" after landing until the rotor is nearly stopped.

Nose in to the wind would also be helpful, but has nothing to do with translational lift in the blades.

(Translational lift is also caused by wind. The heli doesn't have to be "translating" to get some.)

Do a baby auto into landing, then go to full negative when the skids touch down. It won't go anywhere!
