You might.

Like a hi-start there is line and a chute. Since you should be launching into the wind, the wind should bring the chute back toward you. My experience is that this works as well or better with the one winch. however if the wind shifts cross wind the chute can go .... wherever, with either one.

One option is to remove the chute. Use a streamer. The line will tend to fall straight down rather than be carried away with the wind. It comes out of the sky faster and will likely be more in lie with your hi-start or the OneWinch.
