Some people like biased handles. I don't particularly care for them. It's a personal preference.

What do I know... I don't fly CL lol!

It's a good point Travis. I have considered one myself. I was told by many CL folks not to bother.

I think Lieven will have success, when he completes his repairs... and gets in the air again.

I thought about this biased handle giving probs. That's why I turned it around. It is indeed difficult to guess when exactly your handle is at 90° to the lines. The more, you look to your plane and not to your hand. Your hand has no physical supporting point neither and that's what you have when sawing a piece of wood: the position of your hand and wrist are more or less fixed and determined. From what I felt during my attempts is that your wrist/hand wants automatically to keep a vertical position. I think it's all to do with what's going on in your mind while focussing on the plane. I'm going to try a normal handle next time. Repairs are started but I'm busy with work at the moment.

Here is my explanation on how to set up your handle for neutral. You the pilot should be out in the center, your launcher should be in the pit area. With the lines taught obviously, you the pilot should turn your head and not look at the plane. The launcher should be holding the plane with the tail straight up vertically in the air. He shouldn't be holding the plane horizontally. You the pilot should wiggle the controls up and down and settle your wrist where you feel is your comfortable neutral position. At that point your launcher will distinquish what the controls need to do. You may find that it turns outsides different then insides. At that point, regroup and adjust the controls through your pushrod. I wouldn't adjust your handle to assist this. Ken
