Most people faced with the same problem just have two planes ;-)

I guess that what you need is a wide speed range, indoors slower is better but oudoors you need to fly at least as fast as the wind, if not twice as fast.

A low aspect ratio is good for a wide speed range, as the short wing is easier to build strong enough for higher speeds and has a gentle stall at low speeds.

It would help to be able to strap on a bigger battery and higher-pitched prop for more weight and speed outdoors - maybe just moving from 2s to a bigger 3s battery would do it but if your motor can handle the extra power it's heavier than it needs to be indoors.
