Default Tweaking the Swing Arm

Just a couple photos of the "tweaked" swing arm assembly. I had to increase the bend of the tubes to create ground clearance, added a nose rubber bumper and added plastic electrical tape to the rack where the rope will be carried.
The rope coiled around the bare tubes slide back and forth too easily so the electrical tape gives the rope something to grip and helps it stay in place.

Storms tonight so no flight test but great weather tomorrow so I'll finally see the rope fly.
