(Note, he likes to push the envelope on slowness... and has a bad habbit of bank and yanking hehe, yet to tip stall mine :P)
I have been flying mine only bank and yank, but I will not throw it any more than 60deg into a turn unless I use rudder. My record is a 50ft circle with full flaps and some crow to keep me below 10mph. I stopped after two circles because it was starting to stall out.
Mine had a rough takeoff and did split the nose along the seam, but that is mostly due to the terrible glue they use.
