instead of always tossing the plane to start off, can i build almost like a start ramp for it? like two PVC pipes angles upward that the plane can start from?

Bungee system works great. Just do a goggle search.

There is a product already out there called "the Jet-a-Pult". It's available from a couple vendors. Do a Google search, you'lle find it.

There's a Youtube vid of a guy with a SAPAC T45 who lets her slide across the grass to take off ... but he's upped the power in her a lot to do it.

Best is the bungee catapult system ... and this is good for all pushers / EDF's ...

No need for expensive commercial purchase - you can make one for about $30 all in ... Best thing I ever did !!
