Re: Making launch safer - learning from the experts

the One & Only method that is 100% safe, 100% guaranteed: GIVE UP. Strong, turbulent winds? Obstacles, people nearby? Limited experience? Not fully confident in your technique? DON'T LAUNCH. Live to fly another day. :thumb: I gave up once....30 -35 knots with gusts to 50 with sideways rain....had 5...
