I launch mine,,underhand,every time. I have even launched it with a 2200 4s.no problem at all. all it needs is a firm push,nose slightly up,29 degrees or so.

I wish this thing came in a kit form. I have all the components to put in it but then again the PNP version cant be found either.

Thought about checking out the store on a day off, but the 100 mile round trip through ATL is a time killer...actually cheaper to ship..

If you,like,me,only have small hands.stick a small strip of sand paper just where your fingers grip the sides,it gives you a firm hold and if done discreetly,it doesnt really notice.I will post a picture of mine when i get a moment.
