Default Can you hand launch a foamie with top mounted edf?

I am wondering whether ths can work or not as the edf when on top of fuselage is blowing no air over the wing creating lift while still in hand.

Hand launch any EDF and you have same situation ... but they fly.

Its flying speed that matters - not prop flow over wing.

Second - there is no need to 'run' or Hop Skip and throw as I call it ... you see guy take steps forward and then literally stops to throw ! The trick is to have good balanced hold ... and give it a decent definite shove from a standing position ...
