However, this is a thermal flying glider, and as the full size manual states, it is nonaerobatic. I should not be flown at high speeds. The original manual states max 60 mph in tow, and the flying speed is not high, either. I think this also should be applied to flying the model. In my opinion, it is misleading from the producer to show consecutive loops when the glider is nonaerobatic. It can lead buyers into flying the model too hard.
I bought my model in Norway, and will of course see if similar cases turns up in Norwegian forums.
(being a Norwegian, my English language may not be correct at all times, but I hope that you understand my postings).

Well there you go I didn't know that I thought they were rated for loops.
