Art Hobby's Sling Shot launch method?

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

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?

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.

It looked like a bungie launch to me.

Just a regular upstart/mini hi start. A rose by another name....

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!

And I did not see your post before I wrote mine (Actually I moved it to a new thread).
