I've had that happen to myself, and like Sdr, I had flaps deployed at launch. Which is why I now spring-load the flap control on the transmitter. Wind up and release, then WHAM!

I've also had it happen that the airplane (upon release) didn't rotate to climb, but head straight out and low. I forgot the pre-set.

And I've also expereinced the scenario of catching a control on a floppy jacket or sweatshirt, but that usually resulted in a loop. So, I always zip up the jacket, now.

Yours, Greg
