I'm starting to think I bought some kind of fluke Volt. My yellow 174g Volt is nowhere near the stability of a TeeBird. Mine flies more like my seasoned Sidewinder. If I put any real power into this Volt it flips up and carries a nice smooth anny line. I want to find some other Volt owners to compare, but I think mine sounds fairly unique.

How far you tossing them when they flip over on you like that? Any wind when you tested it?

Either way they are definitely more TL than TB for me.

You did post this in every Volt thread...

I'm starting to think the dome/flat (wing up/wing down) variations aren't that uncommon, and maybe this is a good disc to go to the shop to fondle, compare and hand-pick. I'm thinking I'd like a 3rd, and if I go out to get it I'll definitely be bringing my very stable one with me.

Join the club.

But I've been waiting for this disc for over a year now, so it's not like I was going to pass it up.

No wind, and I'm releasing anywhere from flat to a decent amount of hyzer. I was able to crank a few fairly far (for me) with a LOT of hyzer (probably 75 degrees or so) and they were fairly straight. But yeah, nothing like a TeeBird. I don't usually throw too far, maybe max out around 330-340, and this was much less stable than a TeeBird for me.

LOL. I like to make sure I'm getting an opinion from ALL Volt throwers. Since people obviously don't know how to stick to one thread, I don't want to miss anyone that may not know about the others. There is no "force all users who are on multiple threads for the exact same topic see this" option

It sure sounds like OAT. I just can't imagine a Volt being that understable at those speeds. My advice would be to let some other skilled people throw it as well and see if it behaves like that for them, if so perhaps it is the disc.

I just took the plunge and ordered one from GGGT. yellow/170

I had to use the search function because it isn't listed in the mvp list of drivers
