I once put my tomhe designed F-18 in a full power dive straight down, then kicked in full aileron. Both tailerons promptly separated from the airframe.

I don't recommend that manuever.

And I second Chris' opinion on the CF rod. Always put one in your plane. If not, the wings will eventually start warping and affecting flight performance. This happened on my first F-18 and Su-37. All of mine get CF now.
