No it doesn't but I use nylon coated fishing trace (20Kg) which works very well with gliders up to 7Kg. I use a weak link of 5Kg nylon fishing line that breaks at around 4.5Kg with a simple knot, this protects the glider and tug from snatch loads. The tow line is low stretch 20Kg with swivels at both ends and ping pong balls at the glider end to hold the line post release. Line length around 20m. I hope this info helps.
here is a tip for installing: the end of the glider release will fit perfectly into the end of a papermate pen cap, this will allow an easier install in some situations since you have a ready made extension that will not hinder the operation of the release.
This is a great little release but agree with Aero12 about using hysol to glue it in, I have it in a fibreglass fuse and works great. If you don't have hysol mix some epoxy with talcom powder to thicken it up to a paste then apply. this way the epoxy won't run inside the mechanism. Byron
Does anybody know, up to which size of a glider this tow-line relaease will work? E.g. would it be possible to operate this tow-line release in a glider with a weight close to 25 kg? (of course the servo then should have a little bit more torque!)
Many thanks in advance for your reply!
