I would wait until you get some more quad skills so that when you make a change, you will know it was the FC430 and not you or the wind!
Thanks for the advice Mark, that does sound like a more sensible approach given the conditions I've had to date. The few moments of calm have been "hands off" in hover etc... and very smooth by comparison to the general winds where I need to drive it.
anyone tried the stock electronics with gws style 10x4.5 props? - expect more thrust etc... but does it significantly change the handling style or does the fc430 cope with that without changing gains etc? I've got some nice brightly coloured ones that will assist a person like me in daylight flight.
