Retrofit kit to disk brake for LS4 with EASA approval
When you modify your LS glider to the hydraulic brake system, the 4“ drum brake wheel is exchanged against the 4” disk brake wheel Classic 110-20. The torque plate assembly has been redesigned and is now CNC milled from solid aluminum. The existing axle can be used further on. The Bowden cable at the rudders is replaced by the new PTC master cylinder. It is very well harmonized with the BZT brake assembly. The glider won’t go onto the nose so fast when you make a full stop.
This retrofit can easily be performed in any Gliding club’s workshop.

Vehicle Tow is the topic of the season for glider pilots. Known from former times, it is an alternative way of getting up into the air without tug or winch.
You just need a car and the Vehicle Tow Device from Tost.
The Vehicle tow device from Tost plays an important role in this briliant video from VW as connection between the Amarok and the Antares. Also the blue towing cable “Dynalaunch” is from Tost.
