Ah now thats where you need to think outside the box. 09cool

30m of Clothesline cable for $20 Steel cored with plastic sheath. In my mind it works. In reality.........

If that don't work I have a few rolls of electrical cable laying around the place to try as well.

one of these might be useful for pulleys, rope and the bar. The rope is quite long and the pulleys are OK. You can normally pick them up for $19.95 when they have a special.

Now lets see you do that around the pump track with a motorised trolley hanging down.

Pretty good though!

Here ya go. Very basic. 20mm t-piece, 3 chunks of 20mm conduit, 2 window roller pulley looking thingys (technical name) 30m roll of Clothesline wire, and a couple of big puleys from version 1.56234785 for added weight. Not even glued together at this stage. Added bonus is I can just put it slightly off the wheels and it locks itself in place.

If I get a chance to set mine up in the daylight hours tomorrow arvo, I'll do the same, got some strange looks from the neighbours the other day.

Derek, How much of a slope have you got the cable on at the moment?

Have been checking out Youtube for ideas, these look ok, simple enough

Try bunnings in the window section there are quite a few different types there. The ones I'm using came from there.

This ought to help with some home movies. I'd like to see it follow someone through the bush though!

That's pretty impressive but will be interesting to see if they can get the 'Collision Avoidance System' worked out.

This video really cool. You can try to play with video plans. But it is more like addition, not a mistake/problem
