Hello Ron and Welcome To ASW15.Org

I'm glad you enjoy flying your 15 and hopefully you find something useful on the forum.

I've been pondering a similar thing (albeit I had been looking at the SoaringXX model (SoaringXX Tow out bar Giga)) Both look fairly similar from what I can gather.

Sadly, I'm not going to be near the glider for a while to take some measurements and try drawing it up. I'd love it to work so I could change out the tow bar I'm using as well. My suspicion is that with the dolly on the tail and then raising it up further on the tow bar support plus the extra height of the tow bar having wheels itself could be a bit high.

That said, the image below from the IMI website and shows an is an ASW 15 with one of their light towbars attached. Seems pretty well lifted up at the back end! Would suggest to me it should be possible.

Hi All I was wondering if anybody has any experience with tow bars like the IMI XXL tow bar if so do they have a lot of clearance under the nose when a 15 is connected up to it?

Rules and Notices / Major Site Update
« Last post by Jonny Mion on 26 February 2021, 14:20 »
Site has now been migrated over to its new server home without too many issues.

I'm starting the process of moving the boards around and creating new sub categories to hopefully have information slightly more concentrated and make it easier to find. So far the boards have been created, and I'm going to start the long process of moving all of the information into their new homes in the coming weeks.

Please bear with me as this is quite a labour intensive and not quick process.   :'(

There are two areas I'm still working on.

Only thing that has suffered in the transfer was the gallery.
 I'm looking into a way to integrate a new gallery into the forum over the coming weeks, but for now I've created a section called gallery where you can just attach pictures to upload them. 

GDPR - Yes the site isn't necessarily as GDPR compliant as it could be so I'll be bringing this into line with current EU/UK regulation as I update all the pages. I don't think there should be any grand changes to the user "experience" but I will know more as I dig into it.

If there are any issues you find please drop them into the forum help section and I'll try to sort them out.

Thanks All,

Good Evening All on!

A few of you may have noticed an extra admin on the login page over the last day, so it's about time I introduce myself! I'm Jonny a UK based ASW15B owner and I will be taking over the reigns from Johan over the coming days in looking after this fantastic resource.

I simply can't thank Johan enough for what he has done for the ASW15 community in the many years that the site has been running under his tenure both in terms of starting it, financing it and answering many of the questions that people have asked over the years. So Johan- Thank You (and hopefully I can convince you to stay and still contribute where you can!) If I can keep up half the service you maintained, I think we'll be in a good place.

Speaking of which, please don't be worried if there are some short term outages over the next week or so as Domain Name Servers and other background services are changed over. We will be back shortly!

So thank you again Johan and I look forward to getting to know you all more as we continue the great work that's already on here,

Safe Flying,

Hi All,

It's sad to see go, but I did not get any reactions to keep alive. This is the last call.

Hi All,
does anyone have or know where I could get plans for a fuselage dolly/cradle that can lift the fuselage high enough to retract/extend the undercarriage?

 and Thank you Johan for running the site I have found it really useful
