Hi Start / Bungee Hook

What the correct / best way to mount a hook for a bungee launch? I have a Speedo 1.2M Pro II that I want to mount the hook to. Building threads didn't show hook mounting. I have the hook, 2 nuts, washers and small wood spacer. Thanks.

For a model like that I would put it somewhere between the spar and the leading edge. I'm guessing you don't want to launch like a thermal type glider. When you launch a model like the Speedo you don't want to use any control input's if possible. Not knowing your model very well I'm assuming it has no rudder.
