A take-off dolly and some skids on the belly would be an option. Leave the weight and drag of the wheels on the ground.

Hum.......well I have someone over at the "other" RC Web Site that was still under 8lbs. and that's using a lower Kv motor and more cells than what I am using.

Here is the thread:
