    Hey guys so in terms of landing i can use hand catch. But for take off do you guys use a mat ? If so any suggestions?

    That's a handy post. Just the question I was going to ask myself. Great minds think alike :)

    Yes, I have a couple of launch pads I use regularly. One is made out of plastic, the other is made of wood.
    I needed something that was portable so that it could easily fit it the frunk of my SpYder RS-S.

    These launch pads are also helpful when landing on uneven terrain. ;-)
    My Motif XF8 doesn't allow me to hand catch any of my RC models. Ha

    Yeah, those work too. Whatever you can find that is cheap.
    Plus with that one, you could stand on it while you're flying. ;-)
