I didn't get out to fly this weekend but I did get a couple of planes. I was given a 2 m duck(needs some tlc), I was given a original blaster that someone in the club won and never pit it together and I bought a supra.
Now I'm getting not the winch aspect of soaring. I have watched people use the winch and it scares me a little. I thought about getting a hi-start to launch my 2m until sat. Our club had a contest and one of the club members came out with his one winch http://gesswork.com/
This takes the place of a bungee or hi-start. I got to launch his plane and it was cake walk. All you do is walk backwards about 15 feet and your up really High. I will be being one of these to launch my planes until I'm not so scared from the winch.
Just thought this was a really cool idea and wanted to share
So how is everyone doing n there tasks ?
