Can anyone out there point me toward a source of information on how to construct a pull string/spring control for an hlg?

I found a thread on RC Groups which deals with this, but it lacked diagrams, dimensions, wire guages, or sources for the spring itself. I have an older glider that I wish to retrofit with this type of control in hopes of reducing the required nose weight slightly.

I'll appreciate any help I receive on this.

Simplicate & add more lightness. Keep sanding!

I am at a total loss trying to deduce what you are meaning, and I have flown Hand Launched Gliders since early 50s.
Please be specific as to what you are aiming to do?

I believe this request is for R/C hand launched gliders, and should be moved to the R/C Sailplanes forum.

I'm guessing that he is referring to a DT system with a viscous timer with the spring and line? R/C groups has a Free Flight section btw.

You are right. This relates to RC HLG and I placed it in the wrong forum.  My apologies.
