What happened to Z-bracing?
I remember several years ago when the talk was that Z-bracing would be the next evolution in HP canopies. Now, with Petra and the PD peregrine seeming to be the next generation in that category, what happened to Z-bracing?
I'm not an engineer or even close to one, but I would imagine it would put a lot of force on the non-loaded ribs. Does it create a problem of putting more pressure on the center chambers than they can handle and they blow apart?
