Remember, Maynard Hill hand launched the Trans Atlantic model from Newfoundland, and it landed in Ireland.

You don't need a video, just fold a paper airplane and practice. Then just imagine this paper airplane weighs 7 pounds.

Start building them SMALLER?

Hand launching is easier when they weight 2-3lbs.

Note the Form!
Note the TX antenna is level away from motor
Note right hand holding finger on stick with a little up inputed!
Nice base ball throw!

PS did I mention Iam left handed LOL!

very good point...always launch with your left hand, so you can keep your right hand on the aileron and elevator stick (assuming your flying with that mode)
