This is just a brainstorm thread. I’ve trying to come up with a noisemaker powered by wind pressure that you can activate from the control bar, like a boats horn. No luck getting one to work yet. It would be handy to have in tight situations or when you want to come ashore and land.
My diablo can use a 5th line, tension is needed only during landing or launching. What if the first couple of inches on tension activated the whistle by opening a shroud. Does any one know of a waterproof omni-directional whistle or reed that would fit this application and still be light enough to suspend on a control line? having the noisemaker imbedded in the 5th would simplify the device I think.
