In my opinion, anything that requires a solid toss to get it flying should be launched from the runway area, and not from the pilot station. There's too much at risk in those situations because they generally require higher throttle and a good hard throw. Lots can go wrong, especially if the pilot is the one doing the throwing.

In the clubs I've belonged to, communication is the most important part. Always vocalize your intentions if you're going out to the runway so that other pilots know you're there before they do a low pass or attempt landing without knowing you're there.

Unfortunately, mostly common sense but with such a mix of personalities and skill levels at most clubs so much common sense seems to slip through the cracks at times.
