If the plane can't penetrate, then it needs down trim, or ballast. A GL can't handle a lot of wind, too much airplane... draggy.
It's a good light wind airplane though.
I won't go out unless the winds at my usual slope site (in the video) are over 10 mph.
I've flown faster higher loaded planes there with winds past 45 mph.
That site is just north of the Vincent Summit site where the dynamic slopers get 200 mph+ speeds on the backside... towards the place I fly from.
