Yes, but can it fly low and slow?

I am interested in this aircraft, but not for its speed capabilities! I am sure that I would go to full throttle occasionally but I am interested because I like the way it looks and I really like the engineering that obviously went into its design and the fact that I could throw it in the back seat of my car and fly it at many different locations using the same batteries that I use in my Parkzone Trojan WITH EC3 CONNECTORS!
But, I am wondering if it will be stable with low and slow fly-bys and mild aerobatics while learning, practicing and perfecting new maneuvers.
Any comments from experienced Stryker flyers would be appreciated.
Thanks, Stan

I think it's ugly, but I want one anyway. I watched them at SEFF and man, they look like a lot of fun.

Yep.. I think it was mopar who has hit 195 on 11S in a Stryker.. I'd say 200mph is not far off anymore..

Mister Q Sominzini mentioned how the deeper V trailing edge cutout (plus the outrunner firewall mount setup) creates a bit of extra distance between the prop and the back of the wing he said allowed for reduced noise. I recently mounted an outrunner that hangs out back of the stock motor mount on my F27C and that extra inch and a quarter or so does make it noticeably more quiet. I didn't think about it till I heard him explain that.
