Just Unpacked GWS Tiger Moth - Impressive Instruction Book!

I have just unpacked my new GWS Tiger Moth & am getting ready to start building. The instruction book is amazing, color & gloss. My Litestick instruction book was poor & my GWS Pico Pack instruction book was just about worthless! At any rate, I can tell this is gonna be a fun project!

The Tiger is an amazing plane. Have a dozen flights in the past three evenings. I followed the directions to the T and my tiger has flown hands-off since the first flight. Bless the CEO of GWS. I hope he's making $ hand over fist.

Is it aerobatic? I just trashed my PicoStik
beyond quick repair so its time to throw the Moth together. I've been wondering if the wings would be rigid enough for loops etc
My attempts with a very well guyed(rigging)
Pico results in the dihedral increasing to
90 deg so I dont consider it good for looping

It is very maneuverable for a rudder/elevator plane. It loops easily. The wings are very strong. I toss mine all over the sky, in my ham fisted attempts at aerobatics, and never worry about overstressing it. The only times I have got in real trouble I was flying inverted too close to the ground. Without ailerons, you can't roll out of inverted flight and have to do a half loop. Maybe it is my flying, but mine won't maintain altitude while inverted.
