That would be easier and lighter to install than an adjustable hook. I still have some of the old Airtronics aluminum rails and hook arrangement. I cut the rail into shorter segments and use them on some sailplanes. But, every now and again, I need access to the rail inside the fuselage. That would require cutting covering on a hook installed in a wing. So, I probably will not use the old Airtronics setup on this model.

If anyone has a Windlord, is the hook location in the wing on the plans a safe bet or am I likely to need the ability to move the hook to find the right spot?
