I fly a AF F-4 that must be launched at 1/2 trottle with a Dons wicked 700 watt setup or will do the tail dance for a few seconds before powering out. I even have the cg forward with same results.
No issues at on like this on the F18. Today on my second flight, I actually chucked it at over a 45 degree angle (not on purpose) and it just climbed at that same angle with no issues at all. My other launches were straight out with no pitch up or down...
