Default GWS P51 tip stalls

Kinda funny, but seems lots of people have written about this. Here is a quote from Horizon Hobby web site about the P51:

The Mustang's slow-speed stability is outstanding, with no startling tip stall tendencies to watch out for

Can they be sued for false advertising???!!! Or is it a balance/pilot thing?

Default it's is a P-51...

I been flying my GWS P-51 since January. I run 8 cells with a 9x7 prop with no landing gear. The motor has been retimed.

I can do loops and rolls with ease for the first 4 minutes, than another 3- 4 minutes at half throttle cruiseing around looking cool.

Fun little plane. Top speed 47 MPH. Stall speed 18 MPH. Go slower than that with no prop wash, it falls, plan and simple. Don't be afraid of a little wind, it'll help with slowing down landing speed. good luck
