That was sort of my thoughts too If its big enough it will fly. When I lived near Wasaga Beach it could get quite windy during the day so if it did I'd bring out my Senior Telemaster with a 65 magnum on it. This plane with a little throttle control could fly stationary if it was windy enough and bringing it in for a landing could be fun too, as again with throttle control could be landed backwards. This is the most stabble windy day plane I have ever owned Sold it a few years ago but my daughter and I built a RC GUYS Treehopper and are running it electric. maiden electric flight coming soon
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Thought for the day

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: e-plane for a windy day?

If you like to build I have plans for Martin Irvine's Moose. Size was somewhere between 50" and 55". I had motors from 16 to 20 cells and it handled the wind great. At the first NEAT fair we had high winds and I was one of the few fliers the first day. Was able to do proceedure turns while others were smacking into the trees.
