I've turned my Piaget into a light wind outdoor 3D plane.

I added a couple of SFG's to the underside of the wing using the pattern from the ones on the top of the wing, no sign of tip stalls now. For batteries I'm using some old TP730's 3S and I propped the motor down to an 8X4 GWS DD. Flies great! Definitely gets pushed around with a light breeze but it has plenty of power now. The CG is a little forward for my tastes, and I can't really move it back because the battery is butting up against the LG legs. I may add a nickel to the tail, but I hate adding weight. I could probably use bigger throws on the elevator, so I may do a bit of cutting and add larger servo horns. Also, I may take the brakes off of the ailerons to see how it handles, but overall, it's flies very well.

For the $$, it's tough to beat.
