Jakob- I hear you about the wind. I have the same problem. Yesterday it was blowing at 80+ mph where I work.. Think it was about 40mph at the field.
I usually only have free time to go fly about 10 times a year on averege and it seems to be blowing on all those days!
Doug. Those retracts you got from PWC rc. How long did it take to get them once ordered? How much was the shipping? Thinking of swapping mine out since lots of people have issues with bending.
