Just don't fly on a windy day to start with, try to pick a calm day and you should have no upwind and down wind turn problems.

As you gain experience of flying then you can try slightly windier days.

By the way, your Radian doesn't have to be flying close to the stall, a little down trim will cure that, (just a click or two on the trim). Flying too close to the stall is what this thread is all about. People do it, slow down a bit more, then blame the resulting crash on everything else except themselves.

Hope you enjoy the Radian.
For some of us there is no such thing as a calm day. Or at least it is a relative term. Under 10MPH is considered a remarkably calm day. They build windmills here for a reason.
