    Multiplex Aero-Tow Coupling

    MPX Part no. 723470

    A simple, efficient and reliable method of connecting the aero-tow cable to the nose of a glider for aero-towing, without compromising the looks of that gorgeous nose.

    The operating principle has been popular for years. Just attach a loop of thin nylon cord to the towline - nothing extra that could easily get lost at the flying field is required. To operate the release, all you need is a low-cost standard servo and a length of 1.2 mm Ø steel rod running in a snake outer sleeve.  The pics tell the story.

    The housing is made of eloxided (.. Multiplex Aero-Tow Coupling 723470 ..) aluminium, and the unit is simply glued in the nose of the glider using thickened epoxy.

    Whatever eloxiding is (I did try a search and suspect it may be similar to anodising), it's simply a beautifully finished and very strong but lightweight component.

    Hole required: 10 / 12 mm Ø, length 25 mm.
