Next time try this; Point the plane straight down the runway, wings level, at the climb angle you want. Then set 3D mode. Wiggle it around to confirm the surfaces are moving properly. Put the plane down and hit the throttle without touching anything else. Guardian will track it down the runway, rotate, and fly the climb path and angle where you pointed it. When you get to pattern altitude, take over simply by flying it. As soon as you move the aileron or elevator you are back in charge. It's fun and amazing to watch a takeoff or hand-launch flown completely hands-off.
