I finished the Grifter this morning and it had its maiden flight this evening. Flew beutifully and climbed well even at low power settings. Only a couple of snags, I need to enable the brake on the ESC, the outer wing panels will need to be taped as they moved out a small amount during the first flight.

Congrats, yes those freewheeling props are annoying. I was able to aero-tow my fixed up 3.6m DG 505 several times today with Mike which were his first tows as tug pilot.
