Windrider Fox in High Wind

Windrider Fox in 20-35mph Wind. This Fox has been modified: Covering is a mix of Ultracote and Monokote. There's zero wing flex other than in the middle where the two halves join. The carbon mods were mostly ribbon spars buried into the wings, the rear of the fuse, and on the trailing edges of all control surfaces. There's also a carbon rod buried in the fuse from nose to tail. All surfaces but the rudder were replaced with balsa tapered stock (stock was all EPP foam surfaces). All up weight is 28.7 ounces, which is about 13 ounces more than a stock built one. The builder added about 3 ounces to the nose to get it to balance.
