We do hope you enjoy X-Winch. If you are serious about learning to glide, X-Winch will provide you with greater realism to your winching experience . Over the next few weeks, we’ll be adding “How To” videos that will demonstrate many aspects of real-world winching. From how to control the winch speed, how to handle cross wind launches, and how to handle cable breaks and other launch failure scenarios – watch this space.
Of course, we recognize X-Winch won’t be for everyone. Some will just want to get into the air and bumble around, For those that come along for the ride – stick with it, do your pre-flights correctly and who knows – one day we might find you paying a visit to a real gliding club to experience for yourselves the thrill of silent soaring flight.
“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return” *** Commonly attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci – but there’s a lot of well founded doubt about that. It’s a nice romantic idea though – and as every glider pilot will tell you, Absolutely true
That’s it …. Press your launch button and take to the skies. Happy winch launching – and happy gliding.
