DLG throwing position


I am finishing my first DLG, a TopSky.

What is the best throwing blade angle? I am leading towards no angle and perfectly square to the undersurface of the wing and parallel to the long axis of the aircraft.

What would you recommend for a beginner?

Thank you.

It's mostly a question of personal feel, some like it 90 degrees to the ground with wings level, others prefer it 90 degrees to the wing. Some like it tilted back a bit while some like it tilted forward
I use the same orientation as you describe.
Do what feels comfortable

I second what roydor said. Try it, you'll figure out sooner or later if there's a better way - for you.

Yours, Greg
