Default Hand Launch a Force One with out landing gear?

I had a hard landing with my Force One today and took out my nose and right gear.

I was wondering if anyone has tried just taking the gear off. I built it to plan with a center elevator and outboard ailerons, my main concern is how it will launch. Since the ailerons don’t have any prop wash it could be a while before I get control.

Lighter and less drag along with a quicker fix sure sound good. But …..

Default HL Force one

You would never get me to hand launch one of those things! That prop hanging down below the plane just waiting to take some part of my body off is not my idea of fun. That is just my opinion.
