Solo C/L Model Retrieval Assistant.

For anyone who is interested in flying C/L alone using a stooge, here is a handy item to prevent your lines getting damaged while being dragged across the grass when carrying your plane back to the pit area after each flight. It doesn't require much explanation as it should be evident from the photos how it works.

The column is a piece of aluminium tubing that is a sliding fit inside the 20mm pvc conduit. The handle holder is a piece of 25 x 3 mm aluminium offset from the pivot point by about 75mm to allow it to turn smoothly.

Modify the handle holder to suit your handle or make a new handle to suit the holder.

The horizontal slot in the holder faces to the left because I am left handed. Slot it to the right if you are right handed.
