If I recall from another thread, you mentioned your Quicksilver had spoilers, which means it was either a very early vintage, or was an MX Sprint model, which has only single surface wings (like a kite.) I can see how that might respond poorly in roll. Newer MX/MXL Sport models have dual surface wings (full airfoil) and ailerons, and are quite capable in wind.
