I am in the process of building a new tip launch. I am thinking about using rc dt but I am having a hard time finding any pictures of how it is set up in the fuselage. Any pictures I can get will help a lot.

Jim Buxton's tip-launch glider was detailed in the NFFS Digest a couple of years ago; also ran in Sympo (2012 or 2013 I think).  The Digest piece was in cold, so a bit easier to read the exploded drawing. Lots of info on fuselage layout of RDT. He used a pager motor to trip DT.

Thanks for the replies. The RC DT pictures of the SW 36 will help me to get some ideas on how to build my fuselage.
I can email Jim B and see if he will send me some pictures.

I need to pay more attention, likely too late but for future reference....
