It just goes to show that following your gut instinct is a good idea for flying in unusual conditions.
It has left me with egg on my face but I am glad the mods work for your windy conditions.
I think most folk would not consider flying parkjets in such strong winds but for you necessity is the mother of invention or should we say modification.

Everything you and Jeff suggest is solid gold to me. I flew one of my Mig29's down in Chichihua Del Fuego about 125 mi from here..no real wind...I was in "HOG HEAVEN"!! Sorry I left my F-22. It was below 20 Mph and 3 fellow flyers refused to go up....they were laughing as I launched. I let them fly mine.......we all had fun and laughs. The Mig had 1.75 in elevon extensions and was impressive with it's stability and was exceptionally more maneuverable . chas

Smooth as silk, well done.

Thank you for your input......I don't really try to explain it....but it certainly is a whole lot of fun and about twice as aerobatic. chas

Way to go! Beauty landing. Can barely tell it's windy.

It was only about 20 Mph ....maybe a tiny bit more...but the longer elevons really smoothed out the flights!!! I am going to give up on the gyro installation idea I had. Just going to have more and more fun and ignore the wind..ha! chas

I'd have a heck of a time flying a park jet in that. I might get away with a wing, though.

Project for you and this way you shouldn't have to buy anymore parts other then some foam and wiring.

Scale it up 10 or 15% and modify the plans to run twin motors, so a little bit of thinking and measuring to see what % you will need . You can also run twin batteries for weight unless you have a large one, you would need to make a Y harness for the batteries to run inline with each other so the voltage stays the same. Twin motors twice the thrust to battle the wind, top speed will stay about the same . The extra weight will also help fight the wind.

If I were to run one battery would it look like this and about what esc rathings on the esc's?wiring for 2 motors 001.JPG

Yes, just a simple Y, so red to red and black to black. If you were to run twin batteries and twin motors then you would do an X.
Without doing anything fancy like running differential thrust on the motors a simple Y connector also to join the leads to the RX, both motors run equal all the time.
