Yesterday was the operational testing day for the adips certification... i.e., proof that it's safe. Sorry the photos are a bit blury in parts but the ride had to be running. Without the cert, the ride cannot be installed and used. Luckily, all was fine... well when I say all, I'm ignoring a little glitch with the computer that runs the slow down process - it turned out not to be up to the job in hand so I had to head over to Boston to collect a couple of resistors to wire in to the main control unit - on full load (48 x 75 kg people) it now slows down properly... only a 5 hour journey after a long day!
No word of a lie, my heart was in my mouth... 3.6 tonnes of gravel swinging round at 12rpm may not sound much, but trust me - the wind noise it created was quite impressive.
