I'd try to pick up a Z-Drone. I believe Dynamic Discs has some. I don't like FLX discs very much because I feel like I don't get as consistent of a release with them.

Default FLX Drones

I have been throwing FLX Drones for about 2 1/2 years now and absolutley love them! It is the ONLY Discraft disc I own and you would have to kill me to take it from me. I know the Drone is the most overstable disc Discraft makes according to the flight numbers anyway, but mine have always flown very straight. Guys I play with just shake their heads and ask how in the world I get a Drone to fly so straight. I don't have an answer for them. That's just the way they fly for me. It is one of my most used discs. I usually throw it on my drives on shorter holes and my upshot for longer holes. I highly recommend the FLX Drone.

^ Not doubting this and glad you love it for straight flights.
That being said, I wouldn't want someone thinking:
"I wanna throw straight, maybe I'll pick up an FLX Drone..." ---->

Pretty safe to say# of people who throw Drones straight <<<<< # of people who can't. Even Discraft would tell people who want a straight flying mid to try a Buzzz or a Comet. Love my Drone, but straight just isn't its lot in my life... or many other people's for that matter.

I did not intend to mislead anyone on the traditional flight path of the FLX Drone. I was just stating that for ME, it flies very straight. I have seen a few other guys who have done it on a fluke, but you are correct in saying for MOST players, the Drone is not a tradional straight flying disc.

Finally got around to replacing my lost FLX Drone with another FLX Drone. I used it for stupid overstable, into the wind, upshots. The one I just got weighs 183g and flies like my Squall. Thrown hard and flat in calm conditions it actually turns and has modest fade, nothing like my last one. My last one I could throw on extreme anny and have it fight back hard. This one holds the anny to the ground.

Anyone else experience this? I was thinking about working with it and seeing how it does in a headwind. If it holds up in a headwind and flies like a Squall does in calm wind it might be pretty special.

Edit: Didn't notice this was not in the disc forum.

And yes, they stay very overstable for ages.

If you are looking for something as stable as a NukeOS but not as fast, try the predator too. It's the most overstable fairway driver by Discraft ( as far as I know ) and flies much like the Innova Firebird.
Flick is the most overstable. i keep it for shots that i need to lss hook harder than a pred. and thumbers

Don't forget about the Drone's little brother -- the Zone. Shorter but sweeter.

I got an limited edition drone in a mystery box last year. Kind of mix between z and ti. It will never come out of my bag. Just picoed up a ti last weekend to back it up. As some one said the zone is the ish as well.

This. I can throw my CZ Drone into a 25mph headwind and it will still fade at the end.
