I've recently been experimenting with a hi-start.

Originally, I was using a cloth-covered bungee of about 10m, with a length of fishing line attached. Worked fine.

Now, I have a 30 silicon bungee ... but, I'm not seeing much increase in performance.

Our field has long grass and slopes away gently. It seems to me that the long grass creates a lot of drag on the rubber and line, such thatthere's a tremendous force required to stretch the rubber properly. Also, the pilot is having to pull from "below" the crest of the slope.

Anyway, more experimenting to come.
