A simple, reliable and elegant method of connecting the aero-tow cable to the nose of a glider for aero-towing. The principle has been popular for years; just attach a loop of
thin nylon cord to the towline – nothing extra is required which could easily get lost at the flying field. To operate the release all you need is a low-cost standard servo and a length of 1.2 mm Ø steel rod running in a snake outer sleeve. The housing is made of eloxided aluminium, and the unit is simply glued in the extreme nose of the glider using thickened epoxy. Hole required: 10 / 12 mm Ø, length 25 mm.
