the documentation clearly indicates expert mode is not OFF
In Experienced Mode, the SAFE functions - limits on pitch and roll angles - are in fact off. AS3X, the automatic stabilization system, is always on.

AS3X is different from SAFE and is common on most Spektrum receivers now. AS3X will automatically correct for unexpected movement such as wind. AS3X will not attempt to control the plane at all - it only helps to make sure the plane stays in the same position you told it to go to. For example, if you turn it upside down, but then the wind tries to turn it some more, AS3X will correct for only the wind. You'll still be upside down.

Inverted Hand Launch

Anybody done this ??? Saw a YouTube video awhile back of a guy doing it but can't seem to find it now. I'm assuming this was done in "Beginner Mode" and maybe with the "Panic Switch" pulled as he tossed it.
I'd certainly not do it til I was really confident in the plane, have a good head wind, and be assured of adequate full power.
If its doeable; a cool stunt for a FunFly event perhaps.
