I guess i can't say too much about stock setup as I never really had true stock setup. closest was with choppa crutch and rest stock, but I was pretty raw back then. what I can say is though steady wind is easier than gusts. I've flown in gust where whole heli gets shaken and tossed for few sec if you are hovering . (it was at least 25mph gust) and it is not too fun to hover. I fly my body facing side to the wind rather than into the wind. I find have much better control in this condition. I fly. back and forth perpendicular to the wind. works great and great practice. I find that I hav e most control. higher the wind, lower I fly and higher speed i fly. I get some protection from wind from houses that way since I fly in the street.
