Every Sunday morning we setup the winch to launch our large gliders into the air. Our winch tows are extremely robust so only models designed to be winch launched are best, however, careful "pulsing" of the winch will provide less robust gliders with a good launch.
"Old School" Woodies are a great favorite these days as one actually has to build them to enjoy them! We have many classic designs flying every Sunday!
A great benefit to our flying site is the custom made 60' X 80' "synthetic grass landing zone" set up for contest landings and worry free landings.
Bring a garden tool to reduce the winch line catching plants as well as weeds around the field.
