Default The Installed Swing Arm Release

OK, so now I have the swing arm release installed on my Velos.
I like the way it turned out, just have a couple things to do before I hang my 100 feet of rope on it and take it on a flight for some drop tests.

Given I have no rear stop for the swing arm, I need to install one as it could conceivably swing all the way back and into the main rotor which would probably leave a scar.
Also I need a rubber band or something that can swing the arm back up to the stowed position after a drop to prevent landing with the arm in the down position. No big deal if that were to happen, I could just drag the arm backwards on landing to fold it up. If you notice in the photos, I included rubber tips to the tubes just for that purpose but it would look better if it stowed after a drop so that's the direction I am going.

Looking pretty cool, check out the photos.
