Gordy,

Let me count the ways:

Move the tow hook forward.
Bend the tip of the hook toward the fuse (might require a pull to
release)
Put a small notch in the bend of the hook.
Use a small blip of down elevator after launch.
Visualize the launch without the pop-off.
Fly the model up the tow.

Others may add to the list - serious or humorous.

Don't launch too steep...
Don't launch too shallow...
Check your radio buttons, knobs and dials before you launch...
Don't hold on to the model too long...
Don't let go of the model too early...

Hey, this is going to be fun...
