The test yard was an oak batten - pretty non-flexible. But the force on the yard, under the highest tension when it is squared, is not that strong. There are only two pieces of 1/16" bungee taking up the slack. I can push the servo back against the bungees with one finger. That's way less than would even come close to bending the yard.

I did try rotating the yard. It does flex just a little, even with pretty considerable effort. The flex is less than in the previous rig, which had bungee brace pendants and bungee on the blocks. It seemed like a pretty stiff rig. I checked side-to-side tension at various degrees of rotation, and it always seemed equally balanced.
Anxious to get it installed and tested on-board.
