But.....there is a course across the street. https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=7802

This is on an old dump site. They allow fan parachuting (sorry don't know the real name of this). It is this though. It is a county park.

Paragliding.

Cutting out parts for the FBD&D ver 2.0. The local community college has a “Fab Lab” where the public can come in and use laser cutters, 3D printers and so on. So for $5 and hour I am saving myself a giant headache.

So first picture I’m gluing the gussets on...this will make more sense later.

Second...hmmm I noticed that 6/32 bolts here helped with the survivability of the spokes...maybe an engineering change is warranted

Third...this is the end of the pole that hit ground and it doesn’t look terrible...cut a bit off and we are good to go.
