Had the KA-8 up behind the Funcub today. We finally got the grass cut so take offs were a breeze. We're still working out the kinks, mainly over running the tug (a bit of spoiler seems to help) and the occassional dumb thumbs letting the tug balloon a bit, but had several successful tows followed by some good thermal flights. That thing actually thermals OK, one flight was multiple thermals and about 15'. Would have done more, but inadvertently lost the tow line during one of our dumb thumbs maneuvers, must have pulled the release by mistake.

Anyone ever measure the actual line tension on the high start?
I found my fish scale and think actually measuring line tension is way more reliable than counting paces.
