Art Hobby's Sling Shot launch method?

Can anyone view the sling shot video on the Art Hobby site?

http://www.arthobby.com/review&video.html

I've been unable to view the avi file in either the Windows media player or Realplayer.
The site claims that the method allows a launch of a Colibri to 300'.
Any one have any experience with this method?

John

John:

I wasn't able to view the video, but I wouldn't be surprised if it launches very high this way, as the the Colibri launches very very high with even a plain javelin launch. Compared to my Enigma I'm guessing the Colibri was good for about 80 - 90 feet believe it or not. Since it is only a one meter ship the overall structure and wing are very strong and rigid.

Viewed it using Media Player 6.4 on NT. Just a plain bungee and it's not clear enough to see how high it went.

I swear I wrote my post DLG Version 2.0 before I read that!

Wow, what a coincidence!
