Re: How long is your arm?

Our arm is somewhere between 8 and 9 feet when fully extended, but we may limit the amount it can go out because of stability problems...

Re: How long is your arm?

Our arm is about 2 feet. There was no spot for that so I couldn't vote. Our elevator, well that's a different story.

Re: How long is your arm?

I think people are getting carried away with having a really long arm. It doesn't mean a thing if you aren't stable. It's like being a basketball player with hops but no handle.

Re: How long is your arm?

We've got a 10 foot "elevator shaft" with a 3 foot arm coming off it (i think), so the hypotenuse is about 10-11 feet

Re: How long is your arm?

Looking at about 10', give or take a few (or several) inches. It's still negotiable right now, though. We've got a couple changes in plans that are being worked out...nothing like livin' it up to the last second! Gotta love this game...
