I understand all of that, but I would ask, how often would an average or sport flier feel like flying in turbulent or high wind conditions? Most of their flying takes place in fairer conditions.

Time for me to Fly...

The only time I’d fly a light plane is when the wind is under 5mph. That’s almost never where I live.

Now that Ive reworked them, yes. The standard weighs 235g and the Strong one is 242g. I could get a light one but I already have a light NXT. Not much of a need or desire for another light plane at the moment.
