    Interesting excerpt from a flight report by Harald Penrose "Stalled Behaviour with the original big controllers was outstanding, the machine sinking steeply but in almost level attitude under full lateral and longitudinal control and with no tendency to spin.
    Small preformance loss , large post stall controllability gain .
