Not my best first flight

I picked up my Pop Wing 1200 RTF at an auction for $50. The only thing missing was a battery. I have a few friends helping me set it up now, but my first attempt doing it myself didn't go so well. My friends think my video of my first attempts to fly are hysterical. I was a nervous wreck. So I will join this board by sharing it. I have been told not to launch it like that anymore. Does anyone else agree with that?

What kind of foam did you use to make the battery tray on top?

Hi folks,
Just got this 1200 popwing at AMA expo.
I'm replacing the servo with metal gear instead and using 2300mah lipo.
Planning to add fpv camera and Tx. Thinking of adding a wooden "tray" in middle.
Any other tips? Thanks.
