    Great presentation, Ted. Wish I'd had my map out. But at least now I can brag to everyone about having attended a 'Ted Talk'. And also really appreciate your websites: Great information there.

    Charlie, yup, by the time you buy a couple of those 12' cables, plus the downtime you can pay for an ECI digital tach. And a REAL PITA and time sink to pull all those side panels and stuff for...

    Charlie, good find. Doesn't look like a Tost hitch though :-( . My old L-21B had been a glider tug in MI after being rehabbed from the Italian Army.

    Think about how the plane is being used, and consider number of landing cycles rather than tach or Hobbs time, and modify according how rough the surface is. Thus, a glider tug or trainer would need...

    Gary, and especially if it's a 180hp Supercub, think extra-tight ribstitching in the fuel tank area (e.g., high horsepower acro planes): This fabric really gets beat up in the towing operation.
