Did you see this thread?

There is a picture of mine in there before I rebuilt it.
Flew it a bit this year,even used it in RES at the Nats.
Nice calm weather plane, tows up nice and straight.

Does the windlord use a single towhook or a bridle?
Im thinking about a short kit from ray hayes.

Mine has tow hooks on the wings.
If you read through the thread I linked to Ken Bates shows a single tow hook method, but in the end he reverted to two hooks and the bridle.

The bridle is very easy to make and can be attached/removed from the tow line without having to do any knot tying at all.
