No 3 channel heli is going to handle any wind. But, the 9100 will at least give you some realistic flying experience to build from. It's controls and general configuaration are much closer to conventional RC helis.

Hi,
No larger co-ax heli does well outside unless it is very calm, I cannot comment on the one you posted that is not a co-ax.

You would be better off considering moving up to a fixed pitch heli and even those have problems with wind.

I would forget those you have listed and look into getting one of the smaller 4ch fixed pitch helis you can fly indoors and when your skills improve you will have a better idea yourself what sort of heli you will want after that

No offense but all 3 of those are kinda crap for out door flight(and indoor for that matter IMO). Just try'n to be helpful. For that price range you can have one of the numerous solo-pro/msr clones that will give you a lot more bang for your buck......Here's an example but there are othershttp://www.focalprice.com/YE701R/Gre...l?SSAID=389818. 2.4ghz, 4channels, fixed pitch, can literally fly circles around all 3 of those......Spend your money wisely in this hobby and you can find some great heli's that perform leaps and bounds above what some companies try to sell to the unwise(newbs). Again, no offense...............Kato
