Ed, something maybe to include is a warning that you need to have your brain fully engaged before doing anything related to flying or working on your plane.

I got my reminder today launching a pusher set up. Had a nice headwind so I didn't throw it as hard. Yep, 4 cuts to the bone, 3 not quite so deep, and one partially removed fingernail on my right hand.

Broke both blades on the prop, pulled the motor off the stick mount, and broke one motor lead. Not a scratch on the plane.

Been launching fast pushers for years and years, and all it took was this one time of not thinking it through.
I won't post the photos as they sure aren't pretty.
