If you still need more, then try adjusting the amount of launch mode camber upward in 1 degree steps.
Note that the power producing elements here are first the strength of the hi-start itself and then then strength of your head wind. Put them together and you see that optimal settings would vary based on the wind strength. You can usually find a compromise setting as long as the wind doesn't vary by great amounts.
When you say "normal mode" do you mean cruise mode when I have no camber?
Thank you for the help.
