Default Aerobird Challenger Barrel Rolls

Is it humanly possible to do a roll in an Aerobird Challenger? My friend has tried several times, one time resulting in a folded wing. I read somewhere that you could do a roll by diving down to gain speed, then pull up and turn at the same time. I tried this and it always results in a sort of hammerhead stall/ channdel.

One more thing. Would it be wise to buy a new wing to not run the risk of my stock wing folding? I have about 25 flights on the stock wing and the wing has a few "beauty marks" but nothing to serious.

Never mind, they can be done. I tried a few more times and managed to pull it off (three times).

Congratulations! Now reinforce the wing with a thin carbon rod taped to the underside ( I added two: one about 1" back of the leading edge and one about 1" infront of the trailing edge so that the wing is "raised" equally above the fuselage). Alter the tail with the ProTail modification and you will have a wild ride.
