Yes, a winch will effectively cut the required field length considerably because the line goes out to a turn around and back to the sailplane.

RE: What are my gliders worth????

On a scale from one to ten, whats the condition of the Ventus? Is it ready to fly(servos, batt., RX)? $600.00 would be a fair asking price for a 3.5-4 meter scale ship.

RE: Need help with SLS Sequencing unit

Sign up and post this question over on the www.rcaerotowing.com discussion forum. I'm sure you'll find lots of valueable advice over there. Not much scale sailplane activity here on RCU..

RE: Aileron Gap seal

Those aren't gap seal tapes.. Gap seal has adhesive only on one half the tape.

RE: Plane Crashes Into Crowd at Nevada Air Race

Thats odd!

The poll is at the bottom of the first link I posted. So far, 65% say the races should go on! I am most certainly in that group!;)
