I'm not sure why the interest in limiting the launch height to 150 meters (for non beginners)? At TD contests my average launch height, if I hit it, is right around 200 meters, and many out launch me. It doesn't seem to be a problem in those events and no one has suggested shortening the winch line to give lower launch heights. If it's good enough for TD flying why should it be different for ALES?
