It's torque.
Just launch it with a left bank.

You can launch it by holding it by the right wing tip, apply throttle, give it a slight swing as it tries to get away from you...and watch it roll horizontal while you grab the stick.

I've got a foamy with a mean hotliner setup that needs to be launched almost inverted depending on the throttle setting.
