Thanks
You are right. The bird flys right out of my hand. But if there is No wind
and warm out, I have a little trouble reaching the elevator. There is No stearing. I fluked that it tracks straight. If not adjust the front wheel.
The rear just sits in the dolly . Note the 1/4 " sponge on the rear.
This holds it firm on the dolly . A small piece of piano wire about 3/8 "
on the front holds the plane in place. ( See picture ) I CA'd a small washer so the small hole will not get larger on the undercarrage of my jet. A soon as the nose lifts the dolly lets go and Airborne
I built it because My hand launching sucks Big Time .

I use it on a runway covered by a large Landscape tarp.
Fairly smooth. If you use it on Grass just use larger wheels.
No problems with my friends stock setup and mine with 2W and 6904.
You don't need much speed to get these into the air.

Did I say " I built it because My hand launching sucks Big Time ."
