Beefed-up Tie Downs

At the last test, there was concern that the vertical test stand might not remain firmly tethered to the ground in a worst case scenario. In other words, the nylon guys might come loose. The picutes below are new high strength anchors.

New tie downs

The force during test is UP and LEFT

Four (4) of these tie downs should easily keep an M motor or larger anchored to the ground. I cannot imagine the parts bending or breaking, and I think the red stakes will be remain firmly anchored.
