Re: Vulture 2 battery connection
Alternatively, steel corset boning against a u-shaped (conductive) profile could be used.
It's nothing more than a flattened interwoven steel-spring double spiral, which has the lovely property to be pretty bendy in the flat plane, and not really bendy at all to the sides. They also weigh next to nothing to boot. Short enough, or doubled up they may even help stabilise the plane on the truss in-flight. It'd make a bit of a "noisy" connection, but afaik all the stuff on the plane is on/off so that shouldn't matter much.
( and for those who wonder.... The boning in the pic is actually meant for male clothing: holding your cuffs nice and round in black or white tie attire... :P )
