Just because you have a little experience is no reason to take for granted the stall characteristics of an airplane. I've seen some ugly stallers of types that are famously gentle in the stall, and these were too, AFTER they were rigged right.

Most tube & fabric airplanes have V wingstruts. The spar attach points are fixed. You adjust the AOI of the outboard end of the wing at the upper end of the aft strut, which changes the washout (twist) of the wing.
