Make a tow hook and epoxy it to a 1/32 ply base. You can fiber tape it to the fuse and adjust position. Use about 20' of light rubber hose and some mono with a ribbon instead of a 'chute.

If you're careful, you can winch anything. You might want to be a tad careful using an F3B winch. : )
On the other hand, if you build a much smaller winch, you could easily winch a Bug. Personally, I'd stick with the high start.

I would like to know if anyone knows if a light weigh high start or small winch

has been used for the Bug.

When you get old and your body doesn't work as it use to you have to find new ways

of doing things.

I have been building and flying model airplanes for about 72 yrs and still enjoy

the hobby, just have to make some changes.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
