No, if you take off with the same amount of force, then you leave the ground at the same speed, regardless of gravity. It's just a function of force and mass. Gravity only affects how quickly you decelerate after leaving the ground, which affects how high you get, and how soon you come back down. When you do come down, you hit the ground at the same speed.
