You need to carry more air speed on your landings. You were lucky that there was no damage the way it fell out of the air due to lack of forward speed. The windier it is, the more air speed you need to penetrate it. Come in fast and low and then cut power and flare at the end. You have PLENTY of space to land coming in fast and low.
Other than that it looked like a good flight.
Got to practice that more often and try to line it up in front of me. Think I will be flying this weekend again, winds around 16-18mph ahead!!
