Oli, I'll second Brent's advice and suggest you read Harold Vaughn's book. You won't go astray with Harold at your side.

Re: Vertical drift from crosswinds

As I recall, Vaughn implies that without going into great detail. Robert McCoy goes into it in more detail than I can understand after one read, but the mathematical formulas are included for all aspiring rocket scientists. It is a small value thing, perhaps on the order of Spin Drift calculation which is also proportional to GS. His book is "Modern Exterior Ballistics", available from Amazon.Com for about $95.00.
