Spring Loaded Launch - Quadcopter

#1
I had an idea the other day while I was watching a video about the "Sand Flea" -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b4ZZQkcNEo

I was thinking about building a spring loaded launch assembly for my Q450 Quadcopter, using a servo and a compression spring, or perhaps some type of piston? The whole idea seemed to make sense in my head, until I got down to designing it. I'm completely clueless how I would go about this!

Just something I thought was interesting, it's not really all that functional, but tell me that wouldn't be awesome to launch your copter 20ft in the air, flip your auto level switch (or don't if youre braver than I am...), and start flying :D

Hope you guys like the idea!
