Re: [Quagmirian] My little project

For now you can learn a great deal about it's stability and dynamic caricteristics by playing with it up high and then chopping it. If you hook a small weight to one of the toggles, little sand bag, just before you cut away it will streamer straight down very nicely. That's really where you should beguin with this in any case. You really don't want to feel comited to landing some thing that you know little about only to find that it has stabillity problems or does not pitch well dynamicly.

You might look around for a master rigger that would be interested in your project and enjoy working with you on it. Even just an endorsment or sign off on aplications would go a long way towards makeing you look legitament. There has to be a process here. Where do new manufactorers come from any way? And I think you'll find that a lot of the older... board members, or what ever, that you're dealing with may remember the days when the "manufactorers" were working out of their garage. As long as they think you are serious and responcable they may be willing to help you. Try to have a plan when you talk to them. Start documenting and building files. Develop paper work to record your testing and gather real data. Graphs in a computer always impres people. I think you'll find that if they have faith in you they will bend over to help you.

What times of the day are you around? I've been trying to keep an eye on skype but you always seem to be off line.
