I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Evening all.

I've just finished the tow release mechanism on a little Delta of mine, and I was wondering about the fitting required to go in it. It is basically a small loop of thin cord/wire, nothing fancy. Is it normal for the pilot of the towed glider to supply this fitting? If so, what is the normal fitting on the end of a tow line for it to hook up to?

Cheers
Andy

It's usual for the glider pilot to supply the release with a quick fit swivel particular to their model, my towlines have a loop n the end.

Cheers Rich/Leigh.

So if I make up a short leader (say a couple of feet long) to suit my model, with a quick link type swivel on the end (to hook into the loop on the end of the towline) that should do the trick then Smile
