Today a good hi-start can cost $150 or more. A OneWinch is about $220. So think of this as a second
I'd like to add a qualifier to Ed's note above. You can actually think of the OneWinch as a replacement for several hi-starts
. You can use the same device to launch HLG on up to typical moldie planes.
Here's a comment from a recent buyer:
I was able to try the onewinch this weekend. ... It worked amazingly well. I launched a Blaster 2 and then, since that was no problem, also a Climaxx . Even though I am still very bad at launching I could get it up to ~100m in virtually no wind. The OneWinch is awesome -- great work.
Let us know if you have any questions - and I hope everyone here is enjoying some great holiday time.
