Default Anybody build a take-off dolly for the Whiplash???

Hi,

Has anybody built a take-off dolly for the Whiplash (or even the Diamond Dust)? If so could you post pics or better yet video of the dolly?


Thanks,


Mike

P.S. I'm not referring to the Whiplash launcher

Here is an example DD dolly from a year or three ago

The owner ended up not using it after a while. It was just easier to hand launch the plane.

This is also useful

What Gene did was make the center of the DD trailing edge solid to provide a bit of a grip for launching.
