I try to do that with all my planes.... until i get a small crease in the wing or something - after that I don't really care what happens to it. My p51 was pristine for about 3 weeks
my T-28 lasted even less - about 2 weeks. I'll see how long the mossie will last before i try some inverted flight at 6 inches off the ground.
I think that with the mass of the motors on the wings they will be likely to crease more if one manages to cartwheel it - I'm hoping there will be a CF spar across the wing.
