Well I wouldn't try it. Mine is stock, and you could add more power to yours, but it's a lot of model to hand launch. I saw there was someone on here hand launching a 90mm freewing Eurofighter.

Given enough thrust it should be no problem... but it's a big unwieldily plane. As mentioned though, I've seen several guys hand launch the 90mm euro so it should be a similar challenge.

however you may want to look into bungee launching, it's perhaps a better choice....

or, if you are technically minded you could try building something like I did for my euro.
