Your bungee will still pull it pretty flat, but if you ever want to sell this plane in the future, you will have a much bigger group of people who will wish to buy it because they won't have to patch it when they move the hook back to where it goes for a winch launch.

Just my opinion
There is no slot anywhere as yet. It did not come with any holes anywhere.
I can't imagine anyone wanting to winch launch this as it is a slope sailplane as far as I know. It is a bit heavy for TD.

By the sounds of what you are saying, if the furthest forward position in a winch launch slot would work fine then my proposed location is further forward still so should be alright...
