It wasnt your launch that hurt you. It was your crappy flying!

There you go Tom, if your local friends wont beat you up online, myself and the guys from Utah will be happy to do it.

But seriously, your launch looked GREAT. Huge improvement from Colorado. It looked pretty high to me. Dont think your launch is going to handicap you. Keep up the activity! Dont give up on the locals yet!

This coming from someone who seemed easily to launch my CX2 to 190 feet while I did 175! That does give him an advantage. Also shows it really is me!

Did you want it to go higher? You could have just asked me to throw it harder.

Your launch now, compared to what it was back before you could count to three, has improved a huge amount. It's not the airplane, either. You're smoother, more focused, calmer, collected.

Get some video and post it on the thread for "Launch Videos - Comments Please".

Yours, Greg

Thanks Mister George ,
The way I see it ,every pilot 's performance is held back by their" weakest link"
Which could be any number of things such as,lack of practice,physical issues(bad shoulder or knee)or recent surgery! Even the airplane could be the weakest link in a pilots " chain"
But the airplane can only function as well as the pilots skill level, not the other way around .
I've alway tried to acquire the best tools I could get( in all my endeavors - fly fishing , rock climbing ,ect)
The concepts I fly are a huge help for me
Now I gotta go practice, specifically - on eliminating my weak skill areas( air reading-qt's, ect)
