Glider winch

I pieced together and tested a glider winch that I created out of junk parts.  It won’t win any beauty prizes but so far it has worked very well on a light wieght 2-meter sized glider and it produces very good launch heights.  I hope to test it soon with a heavy 100 inch wingspan Spirit glider.  If the winch continues to hold up during testing it will be available for use by the club’s glider pilots.  Let me know if you want to test it out yourself.
