I was never really aware of it before I bought a Spark, but this is sooooo frustrating.

I'm being really careful so if the wind is up at all I'm just not flying. When I've pushed the Spark high (about 50 Meters - not that high!) I've had high wind warnings, so brought it back down again quickly. I'm looking at other people's videos really enviously. I'm not sure if this is just a windy spell we're having or if it's always like this and I just haven't noticed, but I get to fly about 1 day a week and even then I'm geitting my teeth whenever there's a gust.

I live on the west coast of Scotland about 1 mile from the sea. I guess that's the problem.

What speed wind do you think it's safe to fly in?

I've flown it successfully at wind speeds up to 15 or so Knots.  It's actually quite good in wind, and actually I find it to be more stable in wind then the Mavic.  If you are uncomfortable with it though, then I wouldn't do it as it may cause you to make a mistake.
