    I've read the posts on hand launching and have been successful at it a few times. I find the hardest part is starting the motors with one hand. Definitely easier with a neck strap but really don't care to use one all the time. Can the Auto take-off be used when hand launching? Will the aircraft hover 3-4 feet above the take off level? Thanks.

    I'm wondering the exact same thing.
    Im thinking it will hover 3' from its take-off height/point...
    I just learned to feel comfortable catching it.
    Next is hand-launching.
