Always. To not do so is rather inefficient use of launch energy. It also encourages a person to launch at a substantial upwards elevation angle. That is ok, but incurs risk of tip strike and plane destruction. High angle launching should be avoided, particularly by inexperienced pilots. Also, if something goes wrong, the lack of up elevator increases the odds of the plane impacting the ground, or people out a ways in front of you, at high speeds. After all, you go from having one control - elevator on a switch - to no control at all, until you can get your hands on the sticks.

I've used launch preset to dodge midairs on launch before. When it is the only control at your hands, use it.
