The problem with comparing full size and models is that the modeller is fixed to the ground and has no instrumentation or seat of the pants feelings to help him/her make a nice coordinated turn.
They only have their eyesight and experience to tell them what is happening.
I have flown full size gliders, and many other powered aircraft and you don't notice the wind at all except that you may have got blown downwind a bit during turns.
You also need to allow for it if you fly cross country.
The control line test would actually work but I don't know what the results would be.
