There are many lightweight backpacking stoves available on the market where the burner unit is mounted on top of the gas bottle. While they are lightweight and powerful they all suffer with a common problem, instability.
This instablity is due to a top heavy design with a high centre of gravity. It could be knocked over by a stray foot for blown over by the wind in particually extreme weather. I aim to fix this design flaw.
This is even more of an issue when the stove has up to 1kg (1 litre) of water balanced on top in a pan for boiling.
This can easliy be solved with a quick, cheap and lighweight solution.
