Just signed up to the EDF group with a Panther but found a suitable hold for launching awkward so ive attached this simple lower keel / skid. - I'll let you know if it works.!

I've found if you hold it in front of the intakes it launches quite easily

Thanks Jon - that would be the logical place but my M size hands dont give me enough spread to grasp it well - so had to hold behind T/E which worked but a bit dicy - hence the Skeg.
