How does it fly into a 25 mph wind?

depends on your form and distance, for example if you max out close to 500' of distance for longest drives, a drone should fly straight with a finish just a bit harder then a buzzz with no wind in the conditions you are describing. We can't give you accurate information until we know more about your form distance and style of throw.

Well with a left finish without flipping with good form. And it comes in FLX for tacky grip if needed if Gators are too slick. Both rule in spike hyzers of less than maximum distance.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Well I ordered one to go with the Firebird. 173 gram Pro D. Thought a little lighter Pro D would be less of a meathook for my power.

It'll be good in the wind for you with no OAT. I'm with JR and prefer the champ gator (blunt nose with bead version) in this slot. Both are fun discs.

Ive had issues with small OAT in the past but should be past that now.

The Drone is the most dependable/used disc in my bag. Excellent in the midwest wind. 8) I'm still using the same one that I bought from the first run years ago. I'm just now working a back up into my rotation.
