Well i have tried Bungee launching a heavy airplane many times and all i can say is that if there is a weak point in the construction of the electronics, wiring etc it will manifest it self
pretty quickly.
In mine the current sensor's resistor which btw was soldered at four places on the sensor's board (not only two) decided to liberate it self from the airplane and consequently the plane lost it's electrical power and i the control of it completely. The IMU was still working after the unavoidable crash which i suspect stressed the electronics with more than 5g :-) Other than that i can't see how the usual 5g acceleration of a Bungee launch could hurt
a good IMU's  IC.
Of course someone might know better as i am not that deep in IMU systems.
