Default A tx is a wind machine

Maybe I am wrong... but if I grab my tx and hold it outside where the sky can see it... I swear to God the wind will blow over fifteen miles an hour or worse. If I leave the tx in the case and go to work It will be a windless day. Come home and open the door and proudly display the tx to the sky will equal at least a fifteen to twenty mph steady wind or perhaps even a 40 mph gust.

My brother suggested going to "control line helicopter". lmao. (planker) I'm going to try more subtal things like maybe holding it upside down before I let it see the sky and see what happens. I know... find an indoor place. Easier said than done. It's just that I have a perfect place to fly right here in my apt complex. I know I'm venting but still.... even at six in the morning?

You're encouraging the wind by giving in. Go fly anyway and the elements will give up and stop tormenting you. Planks don't, but helis love wind.

LOL That's why I got into this hobby! Not enough wind for my Blue Moon!

Now when the wind blows, I grab my kite bag; when it stops, I grab my DX7!
