Standard Jantar 48-3 & One-Man Assembly by John[_27_]
I am considering a one-man to assist in the assembly - I figure it will work but since the wings are a bit bigger than other gliders I assist with assembly, I'm curious if other jantar-drivers use a one- man and comments on how it works if they do. Thanks in advance, John

Auto Launching: Truck types, etc by Scott Alexander[_2_]
What kind of auto or truck have you seen launch a sailplane with? Would a Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 do the trick? What are the requirements to become endorsed for auto launching? What are the recommended rope lengths and types of pulley's for a 3900 ft runway?
