Wow! Talk about a first hand view of what happened! Looks like a combination of staying on the line until the tension is gone, but also diving deep at the top. Look at the huge elevator deflection. Glad there was no damage.

I wonder if your tow hook is too far forward. This plane, with any wind at all, should be pulling real hard at the top. I also say this because the first OneWinch launches you reported with this plane seemed far lower than I would expect in a 10 mph wind.
