I'm looking into an Aero Tug for my DA120. Any suggestions with today's available planes?

I believe the Bushmaster is a 60-70cc airframe.

It is, but a 120 will fit and would make it a nice setup for towing.

it depends somewhat on what you are towing. the lighter ships will do fine on a larger airframe but the new GPS triangle racers that are 30 plus pounds can be a handful. the best tow plane remains the Pegasus, basically a high aspect wing on an ugly stik that can tow anything behind it. ( if you click on my blog there are pix of Cal Orr's 80lb giant which was towed with a Pegasus with a DA 100. That towed better than the Bidule 170 with a DA 170) I have a 33% H9 with a DLE 111 that is a good tow for the lighter ships, but if the tow angle gets too steep on the heavier ships all he... breaks loose. 120" is not a lot of wing and will be okay for smaller gliders, but it may be difficult to see at above 1000 ft or so. good luck whatever you choose.

We are setting up a 40% hemple cub for above reasons. Need the visuals at high altitudes. The H9 pawnee and top model Porter we have been using get a little tricky
