I like the height setting on the gear. What radio is that on? Don't think it will work on a DX8!

Awkward....your thinking out loud idea,I have used it and now have the tow release turning the aileron/rudder mix on and off.

All the gear is now in the glider.A few small adjustments and there and all works fine.

Now to get the telemetry into operation.

Glad to be of some use Mintie
I hear that the South Island are having a monthly aero tow event. I wish I could get some interest for that concept up here in South Auckland / North Waikato. I have a strip all set up but only 2 fliers, one is an hours drive away.

No! its all Texaco and pattern ships. too much focus on competition and not enough on fun sport fliers.
Just had word of Cambridge setting up a tow meet. might have look into what happening there.

Yes, Cambridge now have a danger zone and I beleive Wayne Cartwright in Hamilton is setting this meeting up. I suggest you give him a call. And yes, he is a Vintage competition flier but understands the value of sport flying too!
