Welcome to Wattflyer.

Your goal of a small, slow flying airplane that does well in the wind is a very difficult one. The smaller and slower the aircraft the more the wind will blow it around.

20 meters X 20 meters is a tiny flying space.

My best recommendations would be for one of the micro planes but they are not going to do well in more than 5 mph/about 8 kph of wind.

Examples would be:

The Ember RTF

Albatross RTF can handle more wind but may not be slow enough for that space
