Successful maiden yesterday. Our runway is mostly grass but we do have a small fabric runway. Its about 15' wide and 150' long. Was afraid it would be too short for take off and too narrow to hit on landing. I let a friend with much more experiance take her up. He was just able to get her wheels up at the end of the runway and kept it low to get some speed before pulling up. She flew well and just a few clicks here and there for trim. CG at 105 seemed good. Flew about 3.5 minutes I guess. The landing on the grass was a bit rough on the nose gear, ripping the stearing servo linkages out (easy fix). ESC was cool and battery still had 57% charge. Sure looked nice in the air. Sorry no pics.
