Night Reaper aka Nocturnal Grim Reaper

This was my first night flyer build. I used the Grim Reaper as my platform for experimentation. I finally finished it a couple weeks ago. The maiden was a bit rough since I had never flown a powered wing (tricky launch until you get the hang of it) and for some reason the recommended CG proved to be wrong for my build. After some minor repairs, a major CG adjustment and some practice launching I was in business. I've yet to capture some decent video but It'll happen eventually. So far it's a crowd pleaser! Looking forward to flying it more and further fine tuning.
