Also you have to think about hang distance. With my bridge built for one, I can not hang less that 12'. Best is 15' to 18' range. With the longer spreaders on your design, to get the 83% compression on the bars the triangle is going to have to be pretty long. Then it comes to a challenge just getting you tree straps high enough to get a 30* hang.
Lots of things to consider with this design.
Yes that is an important point about hang distance. If the head spreader bars are removed that reduces hang distance needed. Cranking up the tension between the two head end attachments helps with the stability when one person gets out. But, as we know, that increases the stress on the entire suspension system. In practice, I have hung at about 20 degrees or even less in an attempt to increase stability.
You are right, there are lots of things to consider in making the best compromises.
