Tony Woods - Titan 2
This one is powered by a 3W55US which gives vertical performance and is a delight to fly for towing or sport flying and makes an ideal first Tug.
John Greenfield - Super Greenley
This is a very simple to build model with the fuz made from 0.8mm ply with 3mm ply doublers at the front and 10mm sq balsa longerons and cross pieces at the rear. the tails surfaces are all soft 1/2" sheet balsa and the wings are foam.
Foam wings available from most of the wing cutters who advertise in the model mags
The SDD Greenley is an enlargement of this very successful Super Greenley and specially designed for 100cc motors to tow the biggest gliders. It has a built up 100" wing which breaks into 2 pieces for easy transport.

Dave Emmitt - Telemaster

Dave Hoare - Wilga 1:4 scale
This is the 1/4 scale version of the ubuiquitos Frisch Wilga. Now in its tenth year is capable of towing up most of the gliders which visit our aerotows. It spans almost 3 metres and weighs in at 35lbs so it has stability and with its long gangly legs is unmistakeable in the air. Powered by a DA 100, for noise and general towing a 28 by 10 prop seems best. Futaba is the radio link and an Emcotec dual rx/ servo interface is the onboard equipment. Electricity comes from three batteries; two 2.7amp for the Emcotec and one 2.5amp driving the ignition. Krumscheid silencers keep the noise very low.
