Something worse than sustainers are gas turbines on scale gliders? ?????? And what about edf? ???????
Actually have a look at http://www.psr-jet-system.com/___010_co ... xhtml.html
We just need smaller jets to be scale. And can be retrofitted to the ASW20, Discus and others.

I can't imagine the NT would have any objections to electric sustainers on model gliders, they allow a pawnee to operate just down the road and almost entirely unregulated use of the mynd by land rovers and trail bikes.

The added safety margin afforded by a sustainer would surely outweigh any negligible risks...

Slowly converting my fleet :)

Don't think the NT have any say in the operation of the Midland tug as the MGC own the land.

Elliot , the MGC got rid of their Pawnee years ago. I voted in the POLE yes, and as an LMSA member have no objection to Sustainers being used on the hill if the rules allow it.
