As our Moth bowsprits gain widespread use, it is interesting to reflect on the development process.
Like many projects completed by Carbonix, our approach was to narrowly focus on specific issues and address them gradually with iterated design solutions. Each step being tested on the racetrack where valuable feedback was gathered to determine the next round of improvements.
The specific issue we set out to address was slop in the system. Specifically, coming up with a flight control mechanism that was smooth, virtually frictionless, precise and adjustable.
A complex problem that will continue to offer opportunities for refinement!
