I helped my brother run a fun-fly event last weekend at the AMA National Flying site in Muncie, IN. We were towing scale R/C gliders with gas models. Spans for the gliders range anywhere from 10 to 20+ feet. I was flying a 4M ASW-27. We usually tow to 1,000 to 1,500 ft, then see if we can find lift. I had one flight up to 2,500'. Enjoy, Peas

I like how's it's almost vertical for Pegasus as it's towing a 4 meter glider. Get's you up there quick, does it? LOL!!!

All the tows you saw were at 1/2-3/4 throttle. Ask for a vertical tow and Johnny will GLADLY oblige! At scale X/C Nats three years ago, he towed one guy to 4,000 ft! Visibility conditions were obviously ideal. (i.e., overcast) The most fun is a vertical tow with oposing rolls on the way up... :1zhelp: :cool: :eek13:
