How fast do you drive... 70 mph? ohh, no your american 55 lol, still, how fast do you think that glider is going? for short trips just strap them down on a roof rack. as long as you dont follow a dump truck they'll be fine. a firend in the club does. www.rcflyers.fsnet.co.uk and.. amusing pics ( i think )

The 55mph speed limit has been history for about 10 years.

Thanks for the replies and ideas guys. I like the ski carrier and the best price I've seen on one. I'll have to check on a rack to fit the car. I don't think I'm ready to tie them on, out in the open, in Detroit traffic. Enjoyed the web site also.

Now if only I could find a way to transport planes on my motorcycle They I'd be set.

Default Transporting Sailplanes

I've seen a motorcycle with a twowheeled cargo trailer attached and model sailplanes transported in the trailer.

The cargo trailer probably wouldn't work with my bike or riding style! I tend to ride on the wild side It helps my adrenilyn addiction when I can't get in any full-scale gliding.
Cheers,

Default Roof top carriers

I think the best solution for roof top carriers and airline transport boxes is a double snowboard box similar to the following address

Good luck/
