Winch launch, Tow launch,
Ok, I'm new to gliders and I am looking at getting a Fox 1.3 meter sailplane from hobby-lobby. I say that it can be launched ussing another airplane. But I do not own another airplane, only a heli and that would not work, so I was wondering if it would be possible to maybee set up a winch launch, with a BIG electric motor I have, or maybee a tow launch ussing an rc truck.

I think that model would lift the RC truck off the ground....
If you are new to gliders, I might suggest aquiring a high start. Where are you located? There might be a club near by and you could use thier launching equipment.
