 I would very much like to get dimensions for the stock bridle too.

My Firestorm bridle is a home brew, plain-jane 3 point setup. I've only flow it once and it's promising, but I'd need a lot more time on it before I could recommend it. I got a plain sail and made my own frame & bridle.

Hey there...

I'll pull my FS out this weekend and diagram, measure and picture it for you guys. This will give me an excuse to go fly it, too, I hope.

OK...

If you guys have any more specific questions, I will do my best to get you good answers. But here's what I came up with...
And by the way, thanks for having me get this one out and setting it up, I found that it had a slightly cracked lower spreader and would have been a disaster if I had flown it without a thorough check-out.

Labling the legs might make more sense...

Excellent!

It will be interesting to see how close my TLAR bridle is to stock.

Thanks!
