This plane flies quite well with flaps deployed and doesn't balloon too much.
Makes landings nice and scale like.

I also find she does a nice flat spin, only problem is that they are hard to recover from. I once spun her down to a nice three pointer with only one of the struts popping off. They are stuck to the fuse with just a micro dot of glue so worth checking.
Flat spin .... Ouch ! Two of my favourite models were great at them ... but you paid a price if you didn't power out early ! My Pitts S2 went in - pushing wheels etc. up through wing / fuselage ... my Zlin Akrobat pushed it's whole wing up through to the cockpit !
