Yeah even if you're an experienced flyer and your plane is perfect, you can expect to crash on launch at least 1 out of every 10 tries. Not sure why anyone would pick a wing as their first plane.
not sure about that one vit j ... there are a lot of us who fly a lot of wings and once you have the hang of it you really should not stuff up the launch unless something is broken.
ask trappy, sentry, aarongx, CK, ... when was their last launch fail? mine was when i had the channels reversed on a new RX. before that the last one was on a faulty motor. the last failed launch when it was set up right was probably over a year ago
i picked a wing as my first plane because of how strong they are. i had no interest in a ez star or anything that slow, sure you are more likely to crash with a wing but with the right build and hardware they are indestructable, a point proved by my IYF44.
