actually, you'de buy a bucket of valkryies
i think a dx valk fairly beat in, requires an equal amount of power as a sidewinder. if a dx valk is super beat in, it will require even less power than a sidewinder. new they take more power than a sidewinder, though. and in champ plastic, maybe just a smidge more power...

my solution to throwing dx in a wooded course (which i do), is to throw drivers with thinner rims, beefier flight plates, and with rim stablizers... teebirds, eagles, cyclones, gazelles. they all hold up well with plenty of tree hits. valks hold up pretty good... but i only use 'em for max D, where trees is less of an issue.
not saying everyone should throw dx in the woods... but it's definitely possible, and not as crazy of an idea as most people make it out to be.
