Sunday Morning Aerotow - August 30, 2009
Who cares if the ceiling is so low some of the treetops looked fuzzy? We came to fly and fly we did. It was "maiden" day for Bob's new tow plane. It's been flying for a few weeks, but today it really went to work with a glider on its six.
Pictured here is Bob Morrow's beautiful new Super Cub running an Eflite 160 motor, HV110 controller, 20x8 prop on 10S LiPo power. Tows at 60% throttle. Following behind is my trustly old SGS 1-26B. Aerotow is wonderful when both planes are scale. Dumb luck that the color schemes coordinate perfectly.
Look out Fairfield County!
More details on the Super Club -- see Bob's blog at: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=54862
Do you have any close up photos of the tow release hooks on both planes? Especially the Cub.
Looks great! Thanks for sharing.
The Cub release is the Ben Diss release we sourced directly from Ben. Photos here on the HKM website -- right there with you in the Houston area: http://www.hkm-models.com/HKM%20Accessories.htm
I use Graupner tube releases in my sailplanes. Not the source I use, but good photos here: http://www.eastrc.org/estoreglideracc.htm
Wonderful to see your information about today's flying. Thank you for posting this.
I have some close-up photos of the tow release installation on the Super Cub on my blog for anyone interested.
