I tested it in steep full power dives with big pullups. Loops ,rolls, steep turns and flatout flyby's. I really rung it's neck. It was under way more load than it will ever be as an FPV ship. You could see the wings flexing.

There was no problem at all. I think that this version is much better than the past ones and without all the extra tape, carbon and fiberglass it has come out lighter.
What is your plane weight?
