Serge Gonzales replied to Serge Gonzales's discussion X-8 Catapult (credits to bretbb of rcgroups for the original design) in the group Catapult & Bungee Launchers
"I like the arrester bungie setup. The downside of the original design is that the shuttle slams into the end of the launcher and yanks the two halves of the rail apart. This is why I no longer use the latches. Instead, I just bolt the two rails…"

"Exactly DF13 are absolute garbage, they are basically plugin once and replace next time. They are too easy or fragile and can break and its not worth taking the risk thinking the connection is there."

"assalamu 'alaikum, yes you guys are correct the original power cables on the APM 2.5/2.6 are short, the Pixhawk ones are much longer. I extended mine by 6-7cm just so it would fit on my TBS Discovery. There are places you can get longer ones…"

"I've shaved the locking tabs on my cables by a fraction of a hair and haven't had problems unplugging since. If you don't take too much off, they will not come out on their own, but will come out with a tug without feeling like…"

"Hey Serge, Chuck experienced a similar situation in Montana with a loss of GPS just after takeoff. Maybe the cause was simply the GPS connector. I'm still mystified how a GPS failure could cause such a dive. Tridge hasn't gotten to the…"
