Easiest wing to launch in still air?

Recommended Posts

As an aging 10 stone weakling I'm finding it increasingly difficult to launch my wing in still air conditions, as I struggle to put enough energy into it to launched.

Any suggestions for a suitable replacement wing ? ( And why that one?)

I am disabled and cannot pull a wing up....so I learnt to partial power launch. :) Now there is no stopping me.  :)

I'm 10 1/2 stone and 63 years old, so I launch with a trike...........it' so much easier (for me). Consider it.

PS. It may be cheaper than changing the wing.
