The TF1 is the unit that gave birth to our company. What was initially developed for Hanns Schickling’s own use quickly made a name for itself in the aviation family. Apart from some technical improvements and optical optimizations, the functionality is still the same. Suitable for aircraft with a take-off weight of up to 2.000kg / 4,400lbs (MTOW).
With the 400W motor and the 18AH battery box, the TowFLEXX TF1 is slightly smaller than the TF2, but the handling of both models is absolutely identical. The two units are controlled by simply shifting the weight and make positioning the airplane a breeze!

Questions that follow us every day are whether an ergonomic tiller head control is “necessary” and what the differences to the basic version are. Both the TF1 and TF2 work incredibly well with the basic control option, so why upgrade? The tiller control gives the operator increase level of safety allowing the operator to keep both hands on the handle at all times for a better towing experience. So this will be down to personal choice and if price or comfort is the main priority. You can find the differences between the two versions here:
In the standard configuration the TF1 comes with the basic handle. Both sides are padded with foam for a firm, comfortable grip. With the tiller thumb control speed paddles the speed transition is smooth and effortless , the operator will have total confidence whilst maneuvring the aircraft. Additionally there is a button to move the unit forwards and backwards, which is preferably operated with the index finger.
For the TF1 as well as for the TF2, it is possible to replace the basic handle with an ergonomic tiller head control. Its design enables a more comfortable and ergonomic fit in the hand. With the tiller thumb control speed paddles the speed transition is smooth and effortless , the operator will have total confidence whilst maneuvring the aircraft. The tiller head control also has an emergency stop switch on the front side, which immediately stops the unit in a dangerous situation, and a built-in horn.
