If you converted it, then you can take off from the ground without cheater hole nor gear
Or just toss it? I assume it would work close to the FMS Scorpion I did a while back.

Constantly searching for something to be the perfect chill out plane which flies good and launches/lands easy. the FMS Scorpion was good but mine were getting beaten up from a life in EDF form before going turbo.

Cool, please check it out for me. A 400cc bottle is all it takes.

This is from the Scorpion

I will measure, but it looks small. :-)

Look how tight that graphene pack is in the picture, and the dimensions are : Battery Size: 137x45x47mm

I am too scared to handlaunch by myself, hence recessed wheels under belly for takeoff if all possible.

Perhaps it is possible to enlarge the compartment before assembly, or even glue foam pieces between the halves on both top and bottom to add space?

No problem digging out foam. Remember I don't need the fancy ducting. Also the bottle needs to be spot on CG where the battery pics show the area in front of CG

Each code has "Terms and Conditions", probably not working for New Items, which this Flycat probably belongs. Happened to me, chatted with HK and got clarification, so no surprises.

Hope they also sell the kits too.
