I lost my Euro to a bad hand launch from one of the club member. He had seen us do it before and he voluteered to help. I figured it would have been easier but instead even after going thru what to do, he lawn darted it straight into the ground. We don't talk much anymore but I take responsibility for letting put his hands on the model.

The concept I thought should have been fairly simple; if it were a glider and you want it to fly as far and as long as you can get it, a certain trajectory automatically comes to mind.

If you think you can do this left handed, then its usually better to launch it yourself. If you're not so coordinated or if its really under powered, then come up with another plan.
