my new tug "big nuts the first"


Hey all well my new tug took to the air today, a tad tail heavy butnothing some lead can't fix, 40% scale 222cc, 34x10 prop, 4.88 meters span should be pretty much unstoppable on tow and is very easy to see.

1 30 first flight (2 min 10 sec)

Pegasus Lite in MInneapolis


THis is a totally re built Lanier Giant Stinger that we call Pegasus lite.
A well broke in Brison 4.2 (68cc) has successfully towed a LET Reiher 5.4 meter ( 27 pounds ) and smaller sailplanes to date. have about 20 tows on her now and it seems to have good power to weight ratio.
visit out club site
www.mrcss.org if you are ever up this way.

Super Cub added to the Minneapolis tow scene


Now towing, we have a 33% Balsa USA Super Cub (quite modified) with a DA-150 for power. Modeled after a back-country bush plane, this Cub features:

- Scale extended landing gear for prop clearance
- 12" diameter pneumatic wheels for more prop clearance
- Disk brakes for safe ground handling
- Canister exhausts

The Cub has over 100 tows to date. We know it can comfortably pull a 50 pound Salto...

Austin Silent Fliers will have a tug by the end of Sept.


My tug will be in the air by next weekend. It's a modified AMR Trainer 50 with a ZDZ 80 (edit: large outrunner) on the nose. We don't have a scale sailplane scene here in Austin yet but I'm trying to inspire some more club members to become interested.

New to Vancouver Washington


Hi all,
I am new to W.A and have an Abell hobby aerial photography plane with a dle 30cc not sure what it will tow as the plane originally had a weak 26cc but pulled my 2.5 meter 5 pound glider ok. I will be ready to fly in two weeks.
