Several flyers have been amazed that the green Albatross weighs over 30 oz. Notice how slow it still flies even with the load. It can handle the wind is because it can handle the higher flying weight. Most of the flying is at half throttle (or less) giving long flight times.

You can put ailerons on it if you like. I have one that has one small servo on each side but it is one of the beta test tailless versions. The ailerons are not as sensitive as the rudder is.

Lighting them up for night flying will be the big treat. Night flying is as easy as day flying if you know where the wires and trees are.
