I agree that a SS or TM can't fly in 10 mph winds (they only fly 5-7 mph). After a beginner has learned how to fly in the first place, then he can get a 20+mph plane that can handle that kind of wind and fly all he wants. Sometimes the question isn't whether the plane can "handle some wind"... the question is: can you?

My T-Hawk (virtually the same plane with a fiberglass body like the Aerobird) was destroyed after the 6th crash. I've crashed my TM many times and cartwheeled it twice. Only 1 small cut in the wing and 2 broken props. It's a lot tougher than people give it credit for.

Beginners: I know it's tempting but save that P-51 for your third or even fourth plane!
