here's what I like about it... there's a pile of wing area, things of a flat spin nature are very easy and lazy; easiest funnel stationary flat spin things of any plane I've flown, doesn't take full throttle, etc. It does tumble like crazy because there's more rotational mass outside of the fuselage, helps keep the tumble going especially on the roll axis compared to other planes... it snaps awesome, has more roll authority than any other plane (can roll against torque in a hover, etc), crazy good rudder authority means the rudder is deflected less while doing more... so you can horse it around in knife edge with less chance of getting out of shape. it tracks great and basically brings a whole bunch of unique little differences that planes cant really replicate. And though you say you can't do a roller, if you can do the elevator part of a roller, the bype will present elevator only roller better than other planes with far less wobble... it's the whole "makes you look better than you are" deal (this is due to the extra effective side area with the interplane struts and such means the plane doesn't fall as much with no rudder correction on the knife edge attitudes)... a great chance to do a roller while learning the rudder input.
...it's also absurdly easy and very pretty to land in a regular fashion. she's a great flying plane for sure.
