Safety Kit for Supair RADICAL 3

The Supair R&D team has recently developed a Safe-T kit for the RADICAL 3 harness, which is now delivered standard with this harness. Using this kit is optional, and makes it possible to lock the leg strap in place, thus preventing an unintentional takeoff without being connected to the harness. The kit can be removed if necessary.

This is adequate for flying, but may not be enough for ground handling in strong conditions and large deflection angles.
