Self launch system for ~10-12lb glider
Note sure if this is the right place to ask - feel free to redirect me. Also, in case I am asking for too much - feel free to tell me (and then please make a better suggestion ).
I am contemplating the build of a larger (vintage) model of up to 12lbs AUW and would like to give it self-launch capability. However, I am not prepared to spend vast 3 to 4 digit amounts of $$$ on the drive. Would anyone know of sketches / designs / plans or maybe kits for a self launch system which work and are affordable? I am looking for a minimal design of a retractable motor with a folding prop (could be single blade as well), to avoid having to chop the nose off the poor thing. If you happen to know of other designs for smaller glider weight, then please recommend this as well.
Thanks a bunch in advance,
