I suggest you ...

A calculator for the dynamic forces on an bipod guy line. As the bipod is tilted the force on the guy lines increase dramatically.

I can send an illustration if that helps. I'm a member of wasart which is a animal rescue team in the Seattle area. We use an a-frame a lot because it allows us to get our lift point over a horse and lift vertically instead of dragging. But the forces on the guy lines increase dramatically and doing that math in the middle of a tense situation is not feasible. Your app would be great for this.

        I represent the company that manufactures the bipod in the above suggestion. Having persons rig the bipod correctly is absolutely imperative! In addition, it would be good to represent the entire "system", which shows the inline forces on the bipod legs as well as the shear component along the ground. If this suggestion is accepted, I will mandate that users purchase and install this app on their devices.
