Default Awaiting First Flight

After flying my little Fixed pitch heli I got for christmas, I started to get the urge for more air.......
Four days later on my birthday, I was given a "Changeful Bat" 2 channel microlite

That was it i was hooked, the darkside had gotten to me it had......

So a few months went by, and only several flights outdoors, i wanted more (like we all do)

Now to the present time, After slipping my disc at work, I was sat at home (practicing on FMS), and the urge was strong again, the darkside was felt it was, so i was magically pulled into my car by it and forced to drive to the local hobby shop, when i awoke from the daze i found myself walking out with a "Winged Dragon Sportster" four channel.
( u would think the wife would moan, but she thinks its funny because she started all this with a heli ).

Now the dilema, shes ready to go, all electrics check good (some forums are wary of GWS stuff), any the batterys primed to go. but the weather is a little windy (10 Mph), or no wind and im at work [:@]. So hopefully this weekend ill manage to give her the maiden, so here where u come in,
what wind speed would u say is a good max to go out in
Are there any other "winged dragons" out there who can give good advice
Field size?

I have flown the little microlight in quite high winds, to the point of flying backwards, and only had rough landings, as a guide to my fling ability, oh and loads of heli time aswell, with plenty of crashes, but its all good now

i dont know what that model is like, but it is my usual practice to try a new plane in winds no more than 5 mph. i like to give the plane every chance to be successful. good luck and smooth landings.
