May be a bit late in this discussion, but isn't it true, that a spar wil react diferently, when NOT attached to any solid base?
You may consider a test with both ends of a spar loosely lying on 2 points.
Anyway keep up the research "Kite-Brainiac".
remember: amateurs built the ark ..
professionals built the Titanic.

PLEASE......NO TAILS ....

This test might yield more useful results if the spars were under a load.
