Who will get it first :)

Yes the bolts are load baring rated, and they have a tensile strength of 170,000 psi. I tighten them up to the point where there is no movement right to left just up and down (just so they swing with a few lbs of pressure).

For a checkup, i would just look for wear on the bolt, look for any thinning of the bolt.

perfect, thanks. That’s about as tight as I figured it needs be

a couple of small hacks so far, one is empty toilet paper roll over the ratchet connection so it doesn’t hit the metal bar (I will probably secure it with the tape to the metal bar). The other is some transparent foil (from officemax) to prevent the battery from catching on the net when installing in/out (of course remove for flying)

Yes ! I received my SP140 yesterday !:grinning:
The battery is charging.
