Thumbs up Outrigger legs for a Slingsby T61F

Does anyone know where to obtain new outrigger legs for a Slingsby T61F, or the material to make them?

Have you tried Slingsby themselves or Schiebe, the original builders of the SF25 Motorfalke?

Sorry, I don't want to be a nit-picker, still for searching the www or so, "Scheibe" might work better.

Try Stu Hoy at Anglia Sailplanes. Contact Anglia Sailplanes | Anglia Sailplanes

I think he can make them.

TBH Scheibe might also supply them at a price but I think the T61 is Imperial measurements not Metric so might need a bit of fettling to fit.

Or make your own - the outrigger is just a length of 3/4" nylon round bar................... They do need to be rigid though - soft bar soon bends.......................

The out riggers are made of Nylon 66 which is available from numerous suppliers in suitable lengths. I get mine from https://www.directplastics.co.uk/nylon-6-6-rod
