Default STEVENS AEROMODEL AMA VIDEO

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU3x...e_gdata_player

Check out a couple of new kits from Stevens Aeromodel of Colorado. Bill Stevens has the best engineered electric kits available. I've built his Diddlebug, Quacker Oats and S-Pou. Fun kits. I'm awaiting the Granger Archaeopteryx shown in the above AMA video on Youtube.

I think it is a combination of the angle and the type wingtip it has that makes you think that. I have a Rascal C with the same tip and at the right angle the wing looks backwards.

Probably what you are seeing is a combination of the picture angle and the wing tip washout. Bill Stevens designed these two models (and probably others) with less angle of incidence at the tip. This makes stalls very gentle with no tip stall.
