I have had great success with launching the ritewing by keeping my throwing arm strait and tossing it at about a 45 deg angle. I don't have to use much force and it takes of rite out of my hand. It looks kind of like a rocket-ship taking off. Slow and steady... I was very nervous on the first throw because of the weight. That and everyone at my flying field thought it was to heavy to fly Boy were they wrong.

Here is a video of brosius85 using the throw with an added 2 step
Ritewing Zephyr Maiden Flight (1 min 21 sec)
