Not turnerm, but glad to see you here finally. Couldn't believe you weren't all over this thing. My 2 cents worth if you can put any stock in it, is that thus far 15mph wind is no problem for this bird and you know that I'm not a windy weather flyer, or didn't used to be. Had it out several times in 10-12 mph with gusts to 15-16 with no problems. On wednesday several at our field and one guy had his 43" eflight extra, 10-12 mph with some slightly higher gusts and everyone there was surprised that the 26" Edge didn't seem to be bumped around any more than the extra. I've not tried it in any more than 16mph or so, but for me that's probably like you at 30 mph, and it was no problem whatsoever. This is one amazing machine. It will fly slower than the Sbach, but not the Beast, and does not fly like a micro, it will glide and those with the experience claim it flies more like a balsa 3d plane. You really need to try it.
