Kyosho F-86 Sabre Hand launch

I read an article about the Kyosho F-86 with some mods that was hand launchable and a good flyer. This done with a cheater hole, hi-nitro fuel and no landing gear.

I am speculating I could do the same thing with the HB Corsair II. Anyone care to speculate along with me ??

I have extensive flight experience on both of these aircraft. Let me say this: I would not even TRY to hand launch them. Too risky. You will need to throw them HARD and fast. How many launches before you muff it and end up with yet another smooshnosed Sabre?

Use a Bunjee instead, THAT works.

I know that one English mag did hand launch the Sabre, but it was off of a slope;
