Here is a video of a friends Cub on maiden flight doing a cartwheel and tumble. The wing pulled apart and other minor damage occured, but she should be ready to fly again soon.
It is a World Models Clipped Wing Cub (63" wing span).

We believe most of the problem was with the CG being too far back. You can see her nose up quickly after liftoff.

Hi, I do that all the time :) Yea it looked a little to windy to fly that Cub, Glue it back up, and fly it again when the wind dies down, looks like the wind got under the right wing and flipped it over, there was nothing you could do about that, Chellie
