DS - Tracking Bridle

This photo shows the mature DS design with Tracking Bridle.

 

Spars are P300 SkyShark.

 

Regarding the elastic cord design, I am currently using a 13 inch piece of 3/16in elastic shock cord to apply the compression resistance force. This length and stiffness seem to work consistently well for wind conditions between 5MPH and 30+MPH.
