Yes, that's why most of us do not consider low wing planes (especially warbirds
) being trainers. Most high wing trainers (properly balanced) have very mild stall characteristics - they usually just drop the nose down and self recover from the stall unless too much elevator is fed constantly. OTOH, low wing planes usually drop a wing tip followed by total loss of aileron response (lack of airflow through the aileron surface) and they do not recover from the stall by themselves.
