I think that flattish and high speed is the key. I also tried a Star Destroyer which was a little domier and it didn't work. It turned and burned.

Let's say I throw 55 mph. Now add a 30 mph headwind and we have an airspeed on the disc of 85 mph. Funny downwind that would translate to a 25 mph airspeed. Better throw something slower and flippy!
I donít generally like to post my videos on here, but this may be helpful since conditions are closer to what you are facing. You can see me clearly struggle at times to keep the Destroyer, Zeus and others in the air. But the I had some very promising throws with others.
