Deep, step back a couple of steps and analyze the situation. I agree with rtbates. If you get a warbird, any warbird, you are just going to get frustrated worse than you are now. Ailerons have no bearing on wind. Wing loading does. For a newbie like yourself, wind just makes it more difficult to fly if you are not used to it. I have flown my Super Cub, Firebird Stratos and Champ in wind about 10 MPH and it ain't easy. Maybe you need to get a simulator and practice a while. Reset buttons are infinately more forgivng than dealing with real life crash situations. You need to trust us on this. I have been flying my Super Cub and simulator, like I said, for about 3 months now, and I am BARELY ready for 4 channel. I am going to fly my Trojan again this weekend. Am I apprehensive about it? You bet. Like Harry Callahan said, "A man's got to know his limitations." I do.
