Dialing in the Thumper

This evening I worked on getting to know the machine and making it more pilot friendly.

First I set up the foot steering with all new webbing.

Then I remounted the tach at a better angle so that I’ll be better able to read it in flight.

Then I lowered the back pad so that I can look over my shoulder. It might be too noisy but it feels good and the additional visibility is great!

Last I mounted another mirror in the crook where the bullet bars come together so that I’ll be able to see the wing during the first seconds of inflation. I’m hoping this will be a temporary training device and I won’t need it.
