Some of the most fun I ever had flying gyros were those strong windy days. It takes some careful handling of the rotor but it's absolutely a "blast". I used to kite (gyroglider) in those winds when all the airplanes were parked. Even flew in a parking lot once without going anyplace but up and down. Good video of what is possible. Warning: There ARE dangers and it can get "ugly" quick if you aren't experienced. You know, "Don't try this at home"
