Argh..! What a shame.

As Alfred said to the young Bruce Wayne (Batman); Why do we fall... so we can learn to pick ourselves up ;-)

HI Guys.

I've been quiet lately following the debacle of my four second launch attempt. Lots of other stuff on, not PPG related, taking up time but I have been chewing stuff over in my head. I think I've come up with a novel answer to creating a light weight cage. Don't laugh and give it a couple of moments before telling me why two sets of part number EB006 isn't such a good idea.....

We are not laughing at you... were laughing with you :-)
Just kidding. Actually, I have already made a similar solution.



BTW. It did not work. It was too cumbersome with the long extension cord - Lol

Shame it didn’t work, the harness would be lovely and warm at altitude.

(It is only the 650mm wire cage I was planning on using though, the rest of my rig stays unchanged.... apart from a new prop of course)

Okay seriously (not my strong suit). I think that the airflow through the tight netting is going to be very poor and destroy the efficiency. But if you cut 3 out of 4 "strings" away and still maintain structural integrity, then it may work.

But those are steel aren't they?
Sorry to see what happened there, I think you need to make the cage 3 dimensional as flat things aren't very strong and tend to twist. Just angle (bend) the supports and it'll be stiff as a..er..board

edit: Also I had a thought! With two props one over the other like that, having an offset throttle (or dual throttle like a twin engine aircraft) would be great for balancing harness pivot action during high throttle events. Of course that would require two ESC's, but I'm just sayin'
Accelerometer/level/g force chip+processor to control thrust ratio and bamm! Auto levelling. ;)
