  • Tow release for glider and tow plane

    Hi Fellow scale glider lovers:

    I am new to this wonderful forum and also to scale soaring. I just started building a tow plane (Ampley designed by John Green field) and 1/4 scale KA-3 (Designed by Cliff Charlesworth). I would like to know if anyone has designed and manufactured their own tow release for both planes. It is not practical for me to buy these items when the shipping cost is more than double of the actual item and especially I am a machinist by trade.

    Thanks in advance
    Happy Soaring

    Hi Edward,
    Welcome to the forums and thanks for contributing.

    There are a couple designs I have seen, but the one Gunny has in the 2-33 is the best by far. His site has this on it http://www.aviationconceptsrc.com/ap...s/show/7185835


    I'll ask him to check in here and see what he can post to help you out.
    I'll see him in the morning

      Thank you very much for the welcome, I am not new to building R/C power plane and gliders but new to scale gliders so my contributing will be limited!

      I will visit the site suggested by you to find out more

      Thanks and best regards
