The problem is that I'm not good at throwing a plane. That's because I can only throw with the right hand and I fly on Mode 2 (ailerons and elevator at the right hand).
Thus, I need to throw the plane, then quickly place my fingers on the right stick and start to correct the trajectory.
I don't feel comfortable doing that.
If the plane was much slower and stable or if I could throw with the left hand, then I would consider it.
Adding wheels seems like the best way to go since for me the take-off and landing are some of the best parts of flying.
Also, I'm not in a rush since the MIG-15 is second in line for maidening.
