Jim Asked me to post this so he could review it and everyone can learn from it... It was his day of luck..

Notice the Shadow of his wing on launch and his hand positions throughout the launch.

Wow, that's great stuff to watch in slow motion knowing the pilot had a lucky escape. :shock:

Jim and Sean thanks for the great vid to learn from. =D>

The thing that had my eyes poppin was on the slowest speed, you can see the glider flying, then fall back and the lines go slack. When Jim runs out of launch he seems to pendulum up as he swings ahead of a near stationary glider. I'm sure there was a bit of lift and that probably made the key difference. Can't wait for the more discerning eyes to offer insights. =P~
And as I rise above the tree line and the clouds,
I look down,
hearing the sound of the things you said today.
