How high can you "fling" (couldnt resist) it on a handlaunch over level ground? Where did you get yours?

The fling is a great little plane. The covering sucks. There is a long thread over at rcgroups .

Thanks Scott, the funny thing is I convinced my wife to let me buy it because it was purple and that's her favorite color and then when I got it I didn't like the covering and recovered it red clear and blue...... oh well.... I also replaced the push pull plastic lines with kevlar thread.... and moved the attaching point on the rudder horns closer to the pivot to get more rudder throw, on the 9C I could dial it up to 140% but on the cheapo radio I got I can't and it needed more throw.
