Hi guys

been using the zephyr and the alexa mini is having shakes - vibrations -

seeing if there is a baseplate to recommend for this?


Or is it the Zephyr - that has some kind of design flaws?


Is there an alternative in that pricerange that is better?

Hi Ed,


Have you determined that your baseplate is causing the vibrations? 


You may simply need a stiffening system. Check out that section in the handbook and pick up some vectran. If memory serves, the Zephyr does not come standard with attachment points for vectran, so you will have to get creative about how you string it around the sled.


Happy flying!
