Default Silent Partner Lite -- Pace ~4.2, Spin ~ 1.0 for now.

Machine on baseline trying to get slow ball, easy height, to hit on the other baseline. No oscillation yet.

Pace: 4.1-4.3 (of 9.0)
Spin:1 (of -5 to +5)

Set the elevation to get the bounce close/ just past the service line as best I can.

At first I used higher 4 values, maybe 4.8, etc., can't remember, plus a spin of 2.0. It produced too heavy a ball for my practice.
