I stuck my glider up about 60-80 feet in the one tree in the field within 200 feet of us - yes I did!

I bought a childs compound boy from Dicks sporting goods - drilled a hole through the arrow, stuck in some 60# fishing line (also used for spoilers on my older gliders) and after about 1 hour - the plane was down. Yes, it took a while to get the unit working but certainly worth it.

PS - it was about $40 + another $10 for spare arrows i never used
