Hanger 9 made them some time ago but are no longer available. Sometimes you see one on EBay but you will probably have to make one yourself from lite ply. There are a lot of good ones on the threads on this forum. Check out YouTube for more videos and some ideas. I can hardly wait to get out again myself. Not many thermals here in Maine in the winter!

I've been looking around and there is no shortage of people showing how they can be made! So I'm off to get some lite ply! Thanks guys!

It's not rocket science. Try to get the glider at 0 degrees incidence with the wing of the tug or maybe -1 degree or so. Positive incidence and the glider my be flying before the tug and yank it off the ground before its got enough airspeed.
