Good idea John.  Just to add a side note, and you can measure different height people from seat to top of head like I did - You may find a large difference, but a long time ago I found only about 1" difference from seat to top of head between my then 5'8" height and my step-son's 6'8", and the same for my flying buddy who is 6'0".  Guess in some people the height difference is mostly in the legs?  We were all very slim built.  Please post what you find. EDMO

You've got that right Ed! My son-in-law and I are about the same height and his head almost hits the frame and mine doesn't, but my knees are up under my chin :huh:.

I didn't want to use the term, "Fat-ass" to say why some are longer from seat to cap - I was waiting for Doug or someone to say something!  Guess I may have had a little more padding there than the taller guys?  Ha!  The one reason I was measuring was because my design book suggested making small scaled paper models of different height people to make sure they fit in the cockpit while drawing plans.  EDMO

Finished the panel today, 6.8lbs. I was surprised how heavy.

Pretty much done.

Looks nice. Can you put higher pressure or turn up the springs in the shocks? Looks way light to me, perhaps you just have it that way for testing while building? Wouldn't want it bottoming out.

do they use the same pump that the regular snogo air shocks use?  If so I think I may have an extra one laying around.

What do they use, is it nitrogen? The shocks come from the factory 60/40 compression and rebound and 250 psi.

if they have 250 PSI in the them I am gonna say they are using nitrogen.  The sled shocks use air at 55-120 pounds.  I run mine at 60 PSI on the sled.
