Yes, edf's are a little different, especially when hand launching. Make sure you launch outward with a slightly nose up attitude, but don't toss it up or it will stall. I'll attach a video of me launching mine, (your results may vary as I use a Wicked 4800kv motor on a Hyperflow fan; a little hotter than the stock set up...3S though). The EF-16 flies better than most sport planes, extremely stable and easy to fly. Coming upwind into a breeze you can go dead stick and just glide it in for a landing. Mine comes in at 22 oz AUW w/ an Enerland 25C 2200mah lipo. You might consider looking at some of Morgan RC's after market stuff for the plane, I use the screw mounts on mine and love them, (easy access to the power system): http://www.morganmill.com/RC/index.html
