Lastly, when I try flying into the wind on the slope, the plane seems to stall and just start loosing altitude. Is this due to the wind not being strong enough?

Check the c.g and you may need to get the nose down slightly to get the model moving forward a bit quicker into the wind. speed = lift
I think 10 - 15 mph is a good wind speed, 5-10 mph may not generate much lift depending on the shape of the slope..
