hand launch dynam 1200mm spitfire?

does anyone know if the dynam 1200mm spitfire can be handlaunched. I have lots of trouble getting this off the ground from grass field with nose overs and stalls and crashed it couple of times on take off, once up in the air it flies great
thanks

If you can get someone to hand launch it for you, then that would be best. I get my old man to hand launch my dynam Texan and it is fine, so I could not see why the spitfire would not be the same.

In terms of nose overs, it is important that you put some more forward rake on the landing gear to stop the nose overs.

7mm is perfect as with this rake the wheels still fit in the wheel wells.
