Cole,

That's true but with my 3d models i can also do a stunt called a 'escalator' which involves cutting the power completely, pulling in up elevator until the model stalls, then descending at high alpha with power off. The model remains controllable throughout and can be flown out of the stall simply by releasing the elevator. If you have a 3D model then you have probably tried this one yourself?

So even without using thrust, the stall on these models is very gentle, controllable and recoverable. The trick with these models is i think more to do with having low wing loading than anything else.
