Another night of indoor flying in the bag. A friend of mine picked up a 24" edge after seeing me fly mine. He was supposed to show up tonight, and give the LHS guy a bit of a joust for it (LHS guy doesn't like TH for some reason), and another guy said he'd be getting a superlite "one way or another".

What have I done? Oh wait.. flew the best bleedin' foamies ever made and gave others a taste of TH lunacy. I am such a bad influence.

Next stop for me, personally? Veloxity. I'd go with a 48", but I keep that in the realm of balsa.

I had the CY when it was first released, loved it. I pulled the trigger on the MXS-C, for a couple reasons, will probably handle my 3S packs better than the CY and the build in LG. I do low and slow with the CTB so the crazy fast MXS might be a nice complement.

Here in west coast Florida, the winds tend to be moderately high during the winter months, although otherwise the weather is fine. This morning, for example, I flew 5 packs in the Edge 540 but had to quit because the wind had gotten to around 12-15 MPH gusting 25 and the plane became too unpredictable to enjoy flying it.

I'm curious how the MXS-C or other TH 32" planes handle wind as compared with the 32" Edge 540. I'd like to take advantage of the sale but am not sure which plane to buy.

They don't really handle wind well. For me they aren't fun to fly in wind above 5-6mph.

I've learned to endure wind up to about 8-10 MPH with the Edge as long as the gust factor is small. Gusting is my biggest wind problem with foam planes.

Flying in wind is a different type of flying for me, I love the calm but in 10 mph wind (more or less) it is fun to just hang in one spot and practice harriers.

MXS-C wont be any different. My winds are probably just about like yours, only I get rotors coming off the trees which makes for gust-like performance. Anything over a few mph and it's a bucking bronco which takes away from my concentrating on learning or practicing what I want to adjusting to try to get back to concentrating or learning. Just isn't much fun.

If there's a steady wind out of the east which blows directly down the dirt road behind my house it is fun to fly it 3-4 houses east, put it in a hover and watch it float down the road hovering and torque rolling until it's time to fly back upwind

Maybe I'll just put foamy planes on hold and fly my larger, heavier balsa models at the local club field until after spring when the winds die down a bit.

When the winds are up I fly the Veloxity although lately it seems like that's all I've been flying

Oh, OK, John. Regardless if it's 2S or 3S, almost all of the 32" lineup would work for you running 450 mAh packs.
