Balloon to Platform... twist of cable, string, and rope...

I know the balloon in going to spin and that wind will also cause LOHAN to impart more spin....

But i have been thinking about the spin since watching a number of the balloon videos available.

Would it be worth it to use some form of rotation resistent rope and/or a swivel between the balloon and platform.

If you do just go with a standard twine or climbing rope, it might do a bit of good to pre-untwist it by allowing LOHAN to hang from it overnight prior to launch....
