Post stall maneuvers is the text book answer like hovering aka hanging on the prop.

The planes are quite different with extremely large control surfaces and over sized engine/motor where thrust exceed 1:1 ratio. Thrust ratio on my PA Addiction X is 2.6:1

The planes need no runway to fly as they can take off and land like a helicopter. To take off you hold the plane pointing straight up, go full power and off you go straight up like a rocket would take off. To land hover a few feet above the ground in front of you and just snatch it from the air, but very dangerous to do so.

Takes a very skilled pilot with Magic Thumbs and a 3D Plane.
