Autopilot Saves Plane from a Crash

This is a clip of a test flight of my home-made RC flight controller. While flying using the automatic leveling feature in some wind, at 5 seconds into this clip the plane gets caught up in a wind gust which rolls it in such a way that I think I would have crashed it if I'd been flying manually because in the moment I was lost to understand what was happening and what I needed to do. However, in auto-leveling mode, if I just release the controls, the plane will level itself. So it was able to recover, though it was flying in the opposite direction, and so the plane then flew over the parking lot, which normally I would avoid.
