One again you miss the point and misstate what I have said. Where did I say that I could turn a full scale plane at the same speed as a park flyer? I am a full-scale pilot and know better than that.

It is common knowledge that with a scale model of any vehicle speed needs to be scaled, but again that has nothing to do with the downwind turn. As I posted above, if the model is flying with an airspeed sufficient to maintain level flight (with sufficient margin), no matter what the scale factor is, it can the turned without stalling. Scale factor is irrelevant in that regard.

Please keep this discussion on topic.
