Hand throwing those gliders to catch lift would be an enormous effort but I have seen it done. I will never attempt it as a main lanuch method. Those are winch planes and hi-start second.

If you want to hand launch gliders then get a DLG, discus launched. Tons of fun and made for hand launching.

As for 3-gliders, that is a fast growing segment of the soaring hobby. today's modern e-gliders are extremely good and thermal very well.
