Default Modifying Shark 3.5 Channel Helicopter?

I just recently bought the Shark 3.5 Channel with Gyro Helicopter. Its very light and cannot fly it outside at all. The wind some how takes it even when the weather seems calm. It works great indoors though. So how can I modify this helicopter I have to withstand the outdoors? I was thinking of hot gluing like 4 popsicle sticks underneath each side of the landing skid for it be stable for outside. Any solutions??

The answer to flying outside is to get a larger heli, preferably not a coaxial. Your heli, unfortunately, is designed to fly in a somewhat controlled manner in a no-wind situation.

Weighing it down to make it more stable won't help it out.

I see. Well I guess I'll make the best out of it flying it inside my house. I really got the hang of using it. Thanks for the feedback...
