£6.22 Delivered

Shame about the unnecessary lightening just behind the hook but will probably do for lighter towing
It's always calmer indoors :D

"When hanging objects, the best use of thin rope to reduce the resistance of the servo, or may lead to the lock bar can not work!"

i have brought one to try out, they are ok for drop release and crap for tow release

my reason is the the top part stick up to far and is very light weight not ideal for towing large scale gliders IMO
