Bungee launcher by HK

I have just ordered one of these bungee ramps from HK and will post some videos in May or June, as it has to be shipped to the UK from the USA.

You tension the bungee by fixing one end onto a stake, pull the bungee tight and hook it to the pedal using a 1.5m length of cord, then use another cord from the end of the bungee to a hook under your wing.

Press the pedal with your foot and it will push the bungee off the peg and launch the wing.

This kit costs $23.10 its PRODUCT ID is : 310000137-0 Self Assembly Pedal Operated Bungee Launch System/Ramp for FPV/Glider and EDF Models - Hand launching models can be a tricky business and most flyers have had it all go wrong for them at some point, this great launch system is easy to transport & field assemble and allows you to launch totally solo with the peace of mind of adequate airspeed every time for a succesful launch, everything you need is included!
