Bungee tension ... reality !
I read and hear a lot about bungee tension and hook placement etc.
Here is the result of not enough tension :
1.4kg F16 on ~6kg tension.
Up the tension to ~7kg and here she is again but flies :
Here's a lighter 64mm T45 on the 6kg ....
The fact is ... not enough is a guaranteed killer ... too much needs care but works.
I use 5x AUW measured with a spring scale. Bungee tension reproducibility is a very good thing with catapult launches.
For my small to medium stuff - 26 paces = 6kg. For the bigger stuff - 30 paces = 7kg.
So when setting up - I just pace out required and know I'm OK. I'm also lucky that the cut circle we use is same diameter as my 7kg set-up !
