sherlockshah why don't you find a build thread concerning a plane you would like to fly..........(beginner type) then do what the fliers are doing to get it in the air......otherwise you are wearing out your welcome here. I would be the first to point you in the right direction and this is what the guys are doing on this thread(unlike some other type of flying)....but there is a point when they will ignor you.
Others told me F-20 was not handlaunchable but I did it and it worked, so I tried two more times but I realize that the f-20 is not all fiberglass and weight is much less than the other two. YOU will not see me post another fiberglass hand lauch ever again, lesson learned

My sugestion is a het 2w-20 with a 65-75 amp esc and a good 35c-45c 3200mah pack. It will be a lot lighter for what you want to do.
Id love to see this guy with a 120mm jet. (Hand launching) of corse!!! LOL!!

Come on, now. Remember the old saying. "If at first you don't succeed, crash another model."

You stalled it!!!! If Your going to hand launch it, you need to throw it straight and build up air speed

That would be cool if he did. That's what's keeping me from flying the sniper, no bungee. My brother hand launched it for me in Michigan but he's a beast as hand launches, not gonna risk it by myself.

Dude no wonder it didnt fly. It will hand launch if done correctly. One thing is to have someone launch it for you so you can concentrate on the sticks. The other is to throw it hard at only a 20-30 degree angle instead of 45+ degrees. The third and super important is to fly it in a wind. Like a good stiff 5-7mph wind and launch it into the wind.
The looks of it was you launched it without enough force on a calm day with too much incline on launch angle. I have flown and launched het models heavier than yours. And they were hand launched, but not by me. By a friend I trust. He knows how to get it done. You may need more control on a high rate for hand launching also. Then switch to low rates once on step.
Man, your like the energizer bunny!! Keeps going and going and going and etc..............

Got a F-35 coming on friday also bought retracts

Have any experience with retracts?? Dam I lost the twister too, I was flying at this park by the house, I was landing it and I thought I cleared the tree, it was one of those moments where the eyes are playing tricks, I got the plane back but lost a wing in the tree, and its a pine tree so that wing is stuck and will not come down. SO as of now I have no planes, everything is broken , the f-35 I can build right away but might wait for the retracts to get here.
