Default Best electric airplane for windy day?

Many many days we have 10 - 20 mph winds. I have an icon micro, delta ray and a radian. Is there any plane that can handle 20mph or so?

My Stryker handles big wind quite well. For something more aerobatic, the mini ultra stick is a good choice.

I have a twin boom home made pusher electric plane that seems to handle the wind very well. The prop and motor are well protected, even in cartwheels. The tricycle gear with torsion bar mains can take a beating.
