Testing Reluctant Sparrow's suprone harness

Postby Frank Colver » Wed Apr 25, 2018 11:12 pm

I've been working with Reluctant Sparrow all this week as he refines his harness for using the suprone Flybar.

He will be testing at Dockweiler Saturday. :thumbup:

Unless the idea is to patent the harness, maybe a video could be taken and shared here.

If a patent is going to be applied for then Dockweiler may not be good because of the public nature of the site. But I expect that RS knows this.

It's his intent to have HG & PG pilots see it at various flying sites over the next week as he returns to WA.

The product he has applied patent for is the flybar which he plans to produce. High Energy Sports will be responsible for the harness.

A "dream team" of 5 has come together by pure chance and the harness design improvement progress has been phenomenal! It's a wonder that the brain waves vibration haven't been reported in Anaheim this week. :ugeek:

BTW - 1973 hang glider technology solved one big problem for us today. 8-)
