New Depower loop


I currently have a PL zero 4 bar on my Venom and the depower loop is starting to show its age but I am having no luck sourcing a PL replacement so I am looking at an ozone megatron.
Has anyone tried these on an arc before?
I know I will have to play about with the line lengths etc. but if anyone has tried it before I go ahead it would good to gain any info.
Thanks

The Megatron is much easier to reset than the Peter lynn.

I wear out quite a few Chicken loops due to being hard wired in my buggy and the Ozone ones last much longer.

This one has done 1467 miles (2,361kms) with a 7mtr R1 hanging off it.

I made up a pair of long pigtails and use my Ozone Race bar and lines to fly my 10mtr and 13mtr Peter Lynn Venom2.
I leave the pigtails on the kites and can simply change back to my Ozone R1's.

Chook is right. Upgrade to something modern and easier to manage. Add some bar throw in the process and get better performance out of that Arc as a nice byproduct of your upgrade. :D

Cheers Chook :thumbup:
Just need that wee bit reassurance that it would be OK to use.
Swapping handles/Lines on FB kites no problem but just finding my wings with DP so did not want this bit of equipment going t*t's up at the wrong moment.
