Now, mate, for your next design, use a better airfoil. That one in your pic is a very high-cambered very thick airfoil, which might be okay on very light wind days, but it won't have the wide speed range that's needed on the slope. You should build LIGHT but make provision to add plenty of ballast for penetration in better lift days. SD7084 is one of my favourites.
Go fer it!
