Easy build; 6" x 6" x 1/2" plywood base with a 1/4" step-block, 3/32" m.w. pin with 7/64" brass-tube guide, x2 landing-gear straps, compression spring and soldered 3/32" wheel-collar along with some small assorted steel washers and a couple of 1-1/8" screw-eyes. The wheel collar helps to compress and hold the spring slightly while soldering it to the pin. Two aluminum gutter spikes (7"L.) on an angle, through two holes in the rear of the base, secure it to the ground.


next comes a handle for the trip-line, that also stores the line... and will dispense up to 70 ft.

Ian and Roddie's think-tank..  Thumbs Up Did I strike a nerve with the handle idea perhaps?

I must admit, handles are a sore point with me. Especially 1/2A handles  Devil 
 
No, as usual, I looked at your ingenuity and thought of something better and it won't need a stringy pully thing with a "handle"!

Great idea Phil. Funny thing.. but the FL. yellow Mason-line that I'm using; I had passed-over several times, because it was $5.00/spool. It recently went on sale for $2.99!! The chalk-line "reel" is something I never thought of.

I used to wrap my trip-line around my old stooge for storage, and had a small nail tied to the end which I slipped under the wrap to hold it.

I had thought about making different length trip-lines.. 25', 35', 42', etc. with line-connectors on each, to attach to the loop on the release-pin, but I really like the closed chalk-line reel idea, because the crank-handle locks at any line-length you want.

A tail-skid with a "loop" for a stooge-pin is something I've always built-in to my R.O.G. airplanes. I've even drilled a hole through a tail-wheel for a pin. A quick pin-link can be made from a large safety-pin and line connector, by attaching to the tail-gear strut on the inner side of the wheel... or you can fashion one from a piece of small music-wire 1-2" long, with loops on each end; one for the stooge-pin and the other for a line-connector to the model.  

Flying alone isn't as much fun as having a buddy or two along.. but if you have to; having a reliable stooge is key.
