Maybe hand launching this model at less than full throttle with non-counter rotating props the P-factor wouldn't be much of an issue---But those that like to take off with the landing gear I would think that the plane would be a real handfull on takeoff...I know that my Mossie is very easy to take off with counter rotating props...
