I've foot launched a Xaos 27 a few times. The speed wasn't much better than a standard 9-cell skydiving canopy, since the difference is really in the front riser turns (which you don't get to do but once in a blue moon when foot launching). It's a real **** to foot launch... you need really high winds and good ground handling skills.

It really is best to just go with the purpose-built speed flying wings and learn how to get the most from them. Which Gin do you have?
