Nice model RD.
It looks good in flight - plenty of power if you only had 20 turns. The left turn on such low winds seems to be a bit too tight to me.  If the glide turn without power is fairly straight I would consider adding a bit of right side thrust - say 1/32". If the glider turn is almost as tight to the left then I think you will need to check for warps on the wing and/or rudder.
If there are no warps then try adding more turns and checking the turn and climb as you increase by something like 50 per flight.
But please not in the back yard with all the obstacles . It only leads to annoying damage - guess how I know Smiley

Happy flying
John
