Fast Lane Shadow Caster: Any good in the wind?

Toys R Us has marked these down to $30. Just wondering if anybody has any experience flying these on windy days? Worth it for $30 or not?

Those are some very grim reviews, thought none of them address my question regarding wind-worthiness, mainly 'cause the reviewers couldn't even keep the things in the air long enough to find out how they handled the wind!

I don't always trust reviews on sites like TRU's, though, 'cause it's not uncommon for complete dummies do give scathing reviews to perfectly good planes and helis which didn't live up to their unreasonable expectations, and which they can't fly because they don't know how to follow directions.

But in the case of the Shadow Caster, it's on the site in two different iterations (different color schemes) and both of them have nothing but negative reviews, so that's saying something.

Oh well. I'm glad I didn't gamble my thirty bucks when I was at the store earlier today.

Not worth it! Will it fly....yeah barely. But it does indeed fly. Has a GWS EDF 40 stuck inthere and is heavy as Will only fly w/power applied and won't glide at all with out power. Sorta powered glider . I got a few circuits w/mine but thats it. Saved the gear for one of those frankenplane moments. . But unless your just want to get some gear w/bang bang rudder controls to play around with, look elsewhere!
