RT Super Sirius. Would freestyle be safe to fly with this plane ?

I got myself a RT Super Sirius. Its a milled pattern plane weighing in at around only 110 grams with all electronics. I know its mainly a pattern plane, but can it handle any freestyle ? What I mean is can it handle being thrown around the air, doing tight rolling circles, rollong loops etc ? Im not entirely sure how carefull I really have to be in the air so that it doesnt brake apart.

If you build and power the model as intended it wont be a problem at all.

If you start pushing the model beyond its design limits by increasing the battery and motor size its likely to fail in flight.

I'm just about ready to build mine. I'm using an Ultralight setup and aiming for 85 to 89g RTF weight

Pardon me, but i dont see this as a freestyle model at all.
Could you do freestyle manuevers with this model? Yeah, but it would be slow and not as "snappy" in the air.

Its not a freestyle model Pat its a pucker F3P model

I didnt elect to rewire servos and use the ar6300 RX on mine and added additional carbon to stiffen the ailerons and fuselage. I still can in at 94.7g with Hyperion 180's. Its incredibly slow and good natured. The biggest criticism is the roll rate but when your flying at walking pace or less you dont expect a high roll rate

What im saying is that its not a freestyle model. It can do rolling loops, not as well as top Freestyle models. What i was responding to was the OP's first question of can it be thrown around like a freestlye model
