Esprit self launching power pod

Greeting Gents,

Decided to order one for my birthday but have not decided which glider to put it on. I'd love to know what everyone is using it on and what electronics are used.
As much detail as you care to post here. Like weight, props, electrons and mother in laws maiden name. And PHOTOS!!!!!!!

Thank you

LP

Yes indeed.......too many scale glider don't get into air as they should. Aero tow events happen so infrequent .

How's that ASK?

Very slowly getting built. Lost a month of modeling to that virus. Now its a little to warm to do layups in the garage but I'll give it a try. I tried to get some flyers involved in aero-towing but not much success. I like that pod btw.

Yes the pod will make me self sufficient at least getting scale gliders in the air.
Took advantage of Esprit's 4th July 15% off deal. It looked to be well made but do wish fiberglass part is thicker. Those geared/outrunner motors with hi pitch folders have a lots of torque.

Club I belong to in Abq has monthly aero tow so C'mon down!

Like to check out Kenosha pass one of these days. How's LZ up there? With these big scalies it's all about LZs right?

Glad you're recovered........afraid that wasn't a good look for you. Hahaha!
