We set a new a milestone in the model histoy here in Iceland tonight when we did the first indoor aerotow! Good friend of mine wanted to get back to his beginning with a little twist. He found the plans for a Keil Kraft Kirby(Slingsby) Prefect with a 24" wingspan and enlargened it to 35". He controls it with elevator and rudder and has a working release in the nose and a hook on the belly.

All in all we made five tows tonight and I've got no doubt that we'll do plenty more in the future.
Few photos of Frimann the builder and his 35" Prefect.
