Default Piggyback Glider Cradle

I am looking for a cradle to launch a Gentle Lady from a .40 size "stick" or some plans for a home built one. Anybody know where I can buy one or find some plans/pics to make one???

I have one of the old Hangar 9 piggyback setups. In fact, I just put together an old Superstar to carry it (and turned it into a utility plane with bomb drop and everything ).

I also modified an old Wild Hawk I have into a glider... pulled the motor and speed controller and lightened it up. I'll be testing it today if all goes well.

The Superstar trainer has an OS 50SX on the front. I tested it yesterday and it had no problem carrying a full 24oz bottle of water up... and subsequently dropping it...
