The Little BIG Winch is a compact, light weight, complete launching system for Radio Controlled Sailplanes.
Get big winch performance in a 16-pound package you can carry in one hand. Coupled with your 12 volt, deep cycle, lawn tractor sized battery (GNB #DCU1-34 or equivalent) the Little Big Winch will launch your open class sailplane dozens of times at a flying session. The Little Big Winch system "A" comes ready to fly with 1400' of line, swivel, parachute, heavy-duty turnaround, securing stakes, foot pedal switch, and high amp battery quick-connectors.
The Little Big Winch is a compact RC sailplane launching winch, built on an anodized, all aluminum frame for light weight. The cool running, powerful motor utilizes rare earth permanent magnets and robust bearings, and is fully capable of launching and zooming 3-4 meter sailplanes.
At 16 lbs. this winch is extremely portable, and if you use the suggested riding mower sized deep cycle battery, you can carry that and the turnaround in the other hand. You will find that the Little Big Winch sets up nearly as easily as a hi-start, yet unlike a hi-start, is usable in cold weather and on any size field without modification. One trip to setup truly makes it possible to go winch flying on your lunch hour. Fly when YOU want to with a Little Big Winch.
