Mounting your Flying Crank Ghost can be a challenge, especially if you’ve got nothing above it to hang it from. The Wolfstone Group had this same problem and came up with the idea to Mount a Flying Crank Ghost using electrical metallic tubing (EMT). Its a really creative and simple idea that allows you to get your Flying Crank Ghost really high off the ground.
You’ll need to start by pounding the ends of three 1/2″ EMT conduit completely flat. Next, you’ll bend the flattened ends to almost 90 degrees and then drill a hole through the flattened end.
Once flattened and drilled, you’ll simply bolt it to your Flying Crank Ghost frame at it’s three main points. The great part about this is you can join multiple lengths of EMT with EMT tubing couplers.
You’ll have to determine how much wind you’re going to have to account for when deciding how high to go, but it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to get your Flying Crank Ghost up at least 10 feet if not more!
Items needed to complete this include:
- Flying Crank Ghost assembly
- (3) – 10′ sections of 1/2″ EMT
- (3) – 1/2″ EMT tubing couplets
- (3) – nuts / bolts to secure EMT to FCG frame
- Black spray paint
