What I want is info on how to perform the Glider Launch that some RC fliers use. One holds the wing at a spot on a wing tip, (I think the left tip is used) and does a twril to sling the glider into the air, I was informed several years ago that this concept is now used in FF HLGliders, and has become the best method to launch a HLG that is not RC.

There has to be some way to hold or place something on that wing tip to hold things together.

I know how to launch OHLGs from the old school. I can still get a Sweepette up fairly high but the sling-by-the-wing (my term) is much better.
