The Kestrel SX (FP) lacks movement authority and the tail is weak. It doesn't have a flybar, it has a 45 degree stabilizer bar, so it exhibits many of the flight properties of a coax. An HBFP will handle wind better; granted not a lot of wind in stock form. But, with some easy upgrades and wooden blades, an HBFP does wind well enough.
