I don't know if this is worth mentioning, but my Shrike on hand launch does a left roll immediately and it is something to consider. As soon as a little speed is reached it behaves very nicely. I’m thinking the roll is due to torque and p factor since the launch is always at full power. I launch at about 45 degrees nose up and with my power setup it will climb and accelerate at this attitude. The left roll is very easily controlled with aileron but you do need to be aware of it. Things happen quickly in the world of Shrikes.
