It glides smoothly at low speed but there is an increased risk of stalling because you are working closer to the edge of the stability envelope. I don't do wind very much but for optimum penetration I think you would want to shift the cg forward, perhaps by going with a larger battery. Again you might find it more easily upset by gusts. Overall I think the mod is better suited to light wind but do not have enough wind experience to know for sure.

I tried removing the 3 screws to see if the plastic parts were glued on and they are. How do you pry them apart without ripping the foam?
Mine did not have a lot of goop so came off easily.
