Nil wind take off..

Recommended Posts

I always teach to apply a decent chunk of power and hold it there before you launch assuming 0 or low wind. Don't be tempted to pull on the a's any harder than normal though as you risk collapsing the wing. No need to come off the power at all as per (powered launch) as this will not help you to move forward.


Let it push you forward so that you are using little to no physical effort 'pull the wing up' which is a bad phrase...

The motor pushing you forward will 'pull the wing up' so you can focus on how much pressure you are applying to the A lines and where you are in relation to the wing before full power.
