I've been launching 3 different planes, and each launches a little different from the other.
Just to keep my question simple........
Does anyone "not" use preset?
FWIW, I use some sort of launch preset, but it is not on a momentary switch. My plane is rudderless and I use the rudder stick -with reduced rate- to control the elevator on launches. So from the pic, I first hold the stick to the left, giving proper amount of up elevator -providing a great grip to the Tx as well-. Then when the plane has pitched up to a satisfied attitude I release the stick back to neutral. Then I start the pushup by pushing the stick to the right. This a very natural and with analog control throughout the launch process.
