After reading 10 pages of post on this airframe, I say I am impressed. Therfore I must reconsider the Pawnee or Pilatus Porter for now.
Would like to know if anyone has done any ''Serious Aero-Towing'' and at what weight was the aircraft being towed? What about power?
Love my Husky, using a 3MM/TMM TOC 53cc gas engine with a 22x8 (C) hawk prop for towing.
Have towed up my HF Ventus (fully molded 11 kg) as well as my mates HF ASG29 (10kg) numerous times without incident, but I think that is very much the upper limit with this setup.
My mates tug is 11kg (3MM53 engine as well) and we use it to tow anything we have, again maximum towed weight is my Ventus at 11kg. This engine/tug setup has done heaps of work and the 3MM just continues to get better and better, a fantastic engine, really smooth.
We have 4 of these engines as well as the 106cc twin pulling a variety of airframes.

Also have an S2G Pilatus 2.4mtr span with a Super Tigre 3250 as our previous towplane, but I like the Husky better as an overall flier.
