It does loops (backflips really), rolls (but there tricky to do), Tail slides , hammer head stall turns, It will hover in a slight head wind. It will Fly inverted if your good.

Most of that stuff is only really easy to do if you remove the prop guards and the upper horizontal. That makes it much more maneuverable.

An thats just stuff in the air, It can be just as much fun on the ground /water.

A hammer head stall is when you make a hard right or left hand turn right at the point the aircraft is pointing straight up and is about to stall, It will snap around hard and come back down, like a tight U turn in the sky.

To roll you will need plenty of altitude and plenty of speed, then pull the throttle back to half and go full over on the right stick without using any elevator. This will make one motor go to full throttle and the other one stop completely. That should spin the SL pretty fast.
Its best to check the needed throttle position on the ground to find the spot to hold the throttle to make the motors do this correctly.

Expect to lose a lot of altitude so make sure your up high when you try[8D]

My launcher did loops and rolls when it was windy outside[&o] It had barley enough power to go higher then 6' feet[X(] Took it back and now I got the mini launcher and it flies much better then the POS bigger one did. I just don't like the 5 minute if i'm lucky battery time[:-] Heli007
