KFm-4ward in 31-47 mph wind

Today I flew my KFm4ward wing in wind that was 31, gusting to 47 mph. I have discovered that with my present setup (Rimfire 400, 9X3.8 APC) this is the upper limit for my wing. I made the mistake of flying too far downwind and had a slow go of it clawing my way back. Stick with the video; I eventually get back close enough to see the wing easily.

KFm-4ward wing in high wind (31 gusts at 47) (3 min 50 sec)
