Thanks for the tip Stefan.

The power sled 24 looks pretty good.  I just ordered
the version with tail, which it claims copes with a
stronger wind.   I bought line strong enough for the
36 model in case the 24 doesn't lift enough.

£103 altogether and if it works I'll have to buy one
or two more to do VLF.

Hmm, I might also get some nice aerial photos out of
this too.   Some fun to be had...

Anticipating that, I have something in mind to use.
