My original Century Hawk Sport (white model bought in early 2007) had an Irvine 36H engine fitted and was very stable in the hover which after learning on '450' size electrics was quite a new experience.  I tried my first loop with this model and it was nearly the last flight as it 'stalled' just before reaching the full inverted stage and by keeping full back cyclic on then adding positive pitch as it reached nose down vertical it only just recovered at less than 2M from the ground.  Once I had read up a bit more on how to set one up correctly (including making sure it had 'decent' throws, especially negative pitch) it then looped properly and rolled OK.  Sold this one to a friend who was just getting into the 'hobby'.
