Default How does the Blade Fusion 360 do in the wind?

I have a Blade 230 S, and even the smallest breeze blows that heli all over the place. Looking to get a bigger heli and wondering how the Blade Fusion 360 does on a day with a little wind in the air.

I have a 230S, and agree that it is a handful in strong wind. Particularly when the wind has vertical components (or lift and sink - a soaring term). In choppy wind or on a warm day (with thermals, and the ubiquitous resultant sink), I am constantly chasing the collective pitch, as it jumps up or down 10' in an instant. Compensating for horizontal wind is very easy, in comparison. A heavier helo would definitely be affected less by the wind, but I have no idea of the amount of difference.

If you don't get sufficient answers here, you can try on a forum that is dedicated to that particular bird, and I have learned TONS about the 230S on there:
