Yes lighter does fly better. But having something with a little bit of weight (provided it still has reasonable wing loading) and adequate power is also probably the best way to handle the wind, like where we live.

I am getting ready to start on Pat Tritle's One-For-Tea, which is 48" with a target weight of only 12 ounces. Should be an absolutely fabulous flyer, ...but I worry about how it will handle our wind. Looks like yours is a very similar type of plane.
