If the plane is flying full throttle and level with downthrust and the throttle is suddenly cut, it will pitch upward and stall. Just remember to avoid sudden throttle changes. Also since this plane is hand launched, you will need a few seconds to be on both sticks. Since there is not much airspeed at launch, the downthrust can pyle drive it into the ground. A switch with a little up elevator helps with this.

Does your Funbat tend to pitch up more when upright than inverted? I think most high-wing planes do unless I just didn't get something straight.
