Last Thursday I CD'd our fourth Old-Timer event using ALES Limiters and we chose 150m as our launch height. At our first event we had tried 200m and found that a number of planes just couldn't make that altitude without replacing their power plants. We tried allowing a motor restart during launch and this made timing more difficult. 150m was a good compromise that got all but the most underpowered planes to an even altitude after launch.
