The MicroJet is a difficult airplane to launch. I have ahd a couple and know they have a launch idiosyncracy. You need to launch the model with about 2/3 or slightly less power. Full power on lauch will result in a nosedive. The model must get up to flying speed before full throttle is applied.

The MicroJet is fun to fly...very hot!...BUT the launching takes practice to get the right combination. Its small, a bit heavy and the launch must be level, smooth and firm. I would practice over high grass.
