    I decided to try some 8x6 props the local RC shop had, they were $2 a piece and looked rather radical for pitch but I tested it in some 8-10mph winds which I think weather . com needed more coffee, it seemed much more gusty, seems the props help considerably with the wobble, I also have another video from 18+ mph winds on that channel which is in my sig
