Spark Hauler CG Shift Mechanism


The YAK100 Spark Hauler is very tail heavy when the Spark is clamped to it's belly so I had to load my heaviest packs in the nose. Rather then let it become excessively nose heavy after the jet is released I decided to mount the packs on a sliding tray tied to a gear motor and lead screw which will pull the packs back about 12" as soon as the Spark is released. Here's some pics of the setup:
