Does this winger fold up like the zinger winger and the gunners up wingers do?
The legs fold up flat against themselves, but the "U" doesn't fold up without removing a bolt. If you used wing-nuts that would be pretty painless. What I do is just leave the "U" in the locked position and fold the legs. It doesn't make them take up all that much more room and it gives me something to hang them by in my garage.

Btw, I sent you a PM. Good luck.

This was the best thread I have read in a long time. I needed a bumper thrower and didn't want to spend $800 or more. I built one based on this thread for $153.00, workes perfectly. Made electronics from cheap Car Door lock kit from Ebay for $18.00 and it works perfectly to give me 300 ft of throwing. Worked my labs on it Friday and Saturday. Thank you so much. I will be building 7 more in the coming couple of weeks to work multiple Marks.

Where did you get the multi-channel remote? Your remote path was the same way I've been going but I'm having trouble finding a multi channel transceiver with enough range AND enough relays. I finally found one place , rapidrelays.com, and they had a 8 channel 2000M set, but after I called them and gave them my credit card to order it, my credit card got filled with orders to Lowes.com and they're not answering the phone, so I'm looking for another route and found your thread.

Thanks,

No problem. The top back to back 90 is basically 22” square on the inside (22”x22” opening). The longest leg is 48” and the shorter leg is 34”. Hope this helps. Good luck.
