Yes, the flattened flybar will help.

I flew two days ago in 40 MPH wind (gusty wind). I had a hard time keeping on my feet! I am a very experienced pilot, though. However, that being said, I flew four 10 minute flights in that wind and had a blast! I was all over the place and fought the heli using full stick movement to keep on top of the buffetting. But, the heli will stand up to it.

I think a stock Corona can tolerate 25 MPH wind prettty easily.

Flatten the flybar. This will not totally eliminate the issue, but it will help.
