FoxTug - Telford show

Postby Randombloke » Sat Dec 03, 2016 9:45 pm

Got to see it today, a purpose built flex wing tug, climb rates of over 900ft/min when towing HG, up to 1,800ft/min solo.

AND, it is a great experience to be aerotowed behind the FoxTug. Ben/Aeros/Donald have got the speed matching just perfect for aerotowing HG (Dual HG gliders through to RW's) Electric trim works well. They seem to have got Tug characteristics perfect first time. There is definitely a reluctance by pilots in our aerotow group to going back to be towed by the Pegasus XL :-).
