Ka-8b winch release

Post by wickid » Sun Nov 27, 2011 8:19 pm

Hi guys

I've tried google, but I can't seem to find which type of Tost tow release the Ka-8b needs for winchlaunching. I think it should be a Tost G88 hook, but I'm not shure. Anybody who knows?

Oke, I found that the G72 G73 and G88 are interchangeable. But are they the right hook for the Ka-8. I'm pretty sure it's that hook but I need to be certain.

No answer from Schleicher, very unnormal.
All my mails were answered very fast.

It doesn't matter any more. I went trough my gliderclubs archive's yesterday and found an old form 1 from our old Ka-8. I've already bought a G73, but a G72 or G88 is fine as well.
