Hi Jock, I am interested to see the arm backup plate, please post a photo.

My thoughts on the arm connections are -

When you fly in bumpy conditions, or if you throw it around a bit with steeply banked turns on a low hangpoint setup the front end of the arms can move sideways then arms then act like a lever trying to bend the bolt, you can reduce this effect by having the waist strap tight. The solution would for the arm to be clamped with plates on both sides, or to have large flat surface of contact between the arm and the frame.

Hi Paul

If you made a plate to fit over the two bolts (in the picture) and carried on down then swan necked back in and was bolted to the frame I think it would just about hold anything with out breaking.
