Spydermike,

Sorry I didn't reply to your request about how to get a seat to try. I haven't been paying much attention to posts lately. :oops:

Are you located in SoCal?

Frank

BTW - So I won't miss you again, I've enabled the option "Notify me when.................."

Yes Frank, I am in south Orange County - Lake Forest/Mission Viejo area. If this helps, I can provide a UPS or FEDEX ship label if I know the box size and weight. How would you like the funds sent?

That's great, I'm in Orange County also. Since I did not intend to sell the seat harnesses myself I need to contact Mike at High Energy Sports and see how he wants to go about this. Right now I do have a seat at my shop in Costa Mesa, in addition to the one I fly.

Is your control bar already rigged for seated or would you need one of the adapters for prone to seated? I'm still in the process of deciding on the best way to go for that. I have one method that has been flown a lot but I'm also looking at another adapter bar shape. This is a reason that i haven't been actively promoting the new seat harness. The best senario for me would be to have the adapter something somebody already makes. I was hoping that Jim would have his Suprone Flybar on the market by now.

Let's continue on this path and try to get you set for what you are looking for.

Great! I need to go to Costa Mesa this week actually. I could pick it up. Just let me know who to pay and how and I will make it happen.

I do not have a control bar solution yet. I am definitely interested in the Flybar, but I don't see any activity on it. I like that concept. If that is not available, I am in no real hurry as this is for next year's flying up in Oregon. I am just collecting the essential as I come across them.

Thanks,
Mike

I'll call him right now ...

Update: Frank suggested that you send him an email message. I sent you his email address in a PM.

Also, please feel free to call me directly any time at 858-204-7499. All this emailing, texting, posting, and PMing seems like a lot of work to avoid just calling someone on the good old telephone!!
