New Tug for Aero towing big RC Gliders

The Cessna 182 of Peter Karner spans 2.2 meter and with a strong motor upfront will aero-tow big sail-planes from 4 to 6 Meter wing span.

Once again we had some superb summer weather at the Berg field on Sunday.Unfortunately my Emoyeni could not get into the air due to aileron servo problems, but thanks to Tony and Charl ended up flying their Tsotsi’s and therefore did no miss out on the excellent conditions.

Tony's Tsotsi soaring in good lift we had on Sunday.

Tony maiden his Bird of Time, and later Michael arrived, a new member that joined BERG, with his impressive OD electric build glider and Mike few his 4 meter Dianna to 500 meter altitude indicated on his variometer.

Stephan arrived in the late afternoon and as usual had something new to show us,this time on his HLG to help with range problems, he installed 2X 2.4GHz Rx's on the undersides of the wings.
