Been discussed many times already. Feather is the only way to play badminton. See the international and pro tournaments. Much better touch, feel, control etc.

I know what you mean as I play both too. Accuracy requires more deliberate concentration. I find that with plastic I have to use a slightly heavier racket with 1-2 lbs lower tension to get the same power. And you have to use more upper arm and shoulder to hit hard.
With feather I can play finesse shots, whereas with plastic I just play mostly power shots, because I don't get the same feel for finesses shots with plastic.

We use plastic (Mavis 2000) for practice and warm ups and feathers during game.

as max mentioned, mavis 2000's are pretty good for plastic birds... better than 300's in touch and feel and flight
perhaps you can bring those and use it in your games
