The down elevator was to get off the hook, the wind was gusty and I held on to long and I was trying to get off the hook. Just trying for the most height. The earlier launches with less height were mostly due to cross winds and not full use of the line. Half the time at our field I have to coil at least 50 ft back on to the reel and not utilize the full line length. This day I actulayy used 100%. The National weather service said winds to 15 mph. The hook is exactly where the designer reccommends. Never had a problem with winch, histart or Onewinch. Just my screw up. Just thought you would all appreciate my 15 seconds of OHHH.

None of hang up was due to the Onewinch, just me being greedy. These are the best launches I have had (exception of a electric winch) not to mention flying a 2 meter and a 3meter one after the other on the same launcher! Everyone at the field is impressed with the design and workmanship. Than you Tim for the great option for launching.
