It's not meant to hold altitude because it doesn't have control over the throttle or pitch. You get that fun job yourself. I noticed that mine kind of rocks and rolls like a little boat in a storm when flying in the wind. It's especially noticable when flying foward at high speed, the heli looks like it's driving over speed bumps . The AS3X tries hard, but sometimes too much wind is too much wind.
I flew mine in 10mph sustained and 15mph gusts today, that's too much wind I don't care what anyone says. It was a battle just to not get blown away.
