Gantry

24/04/10

In order to be able to lift things around, I have borrowed this gantry from a friend and he even brought it round with his trailer.

I recruited a couple of other friends to help assemble it and it was quite a job to get it lifted upright.† No picture as we were all busy lumping it into the air.

This has a SLW of 500kg which probably isnít enough so Iím going to strengthen this up with some more cross members and probably some acro-props.† Also Iím going to build a new roller cradle to spin the hull around easier as the other is to small.† Hopefully the combination of roller cradle and gantry lift will allow me to get the endcaps and battery pods on somehow.†
