I may open a can of worm's here, but my personal point of view is that in general, thinner airfoils flies better in wind.
In my F3A monos, i tried different sections, from 13% down to 10%, slightly compensated wing area, all other factors the same; the behavior was noticable better in wind with 10%, flying P- Programs.
I don't have the same experiences with bipes, but what i have seen, i recognize the same behaviour, specially in windy conditions, but there are many factors included. The only way to find out excactly what you like is to do the effort and try different options.
