Be sure to upload photos of your AR6400 bug to the bug group website.  I would really like to see it. What most people do is fly the bug on calm to light wind days and have a different dlg for the windier days. I'm being a stickler but there are days when a mass of stable air shuts off lift even on a sunny day.

I think that if you can keep it under 50 gms, you'll have an decent flying calm weather HLG. If you anticipate windier conditions then you could build the Bug a little heavier and use micro servos and receivers. Thermals always exist on a sunny day. For example, if you're standing in a grassy field next to a concrete pad, the sun heating up the concrete pad will create a thermal.
