DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
I agree the current up-right forks have less un-sprung mass. Part of this is the damper not being open bath in the big 2 companies. The bushings are exposed to the lubricant more in an inverted fork, not just the seals. The initial break away force is going to depend on the seals near the top of travel due to the force on the fork not being very large initially. Other things the new boxxer has going for it: The larger air volume of the negative chamber reduces the change in volume initially. This reduces initial ramp up that makes air forks feel harsh. Lighter lowers and damper. Better shim stack arrangment rather than relying on orifice damping. Post proccess machining for the crowns and lowers. This decreases friction by keeping the fork straighter with less bushing binding.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
165#, 6'0" Bike currently weighs in at 38#, so not too worried about weight. Just don't want to add a extra 2 pounds up front for $500 more. I also have a hard time believing there is less un-sprung mass with the addition of the carbon arch.

Five Questions: Enduro Racer Marco Osborne on Winning the Mammoth Mountain Pro GRT
I honestly thought that lefty forks were noodles until I tried to twist one. Super stiff and supple! Would definitely buy a bike with one if I could afford it.

Just tried this without a shirt... Not bad, skin moves with vibration, so no abrasion. Try with belt sander for more realistic test of sliding.

Just have your buddy fly a cheap one after you. Way more stable quad copters can be found online/made.
