Default R/C Paraglider?

Is anyone making paraglider sails for the R/C skydiver bodies? I want to attempt a hybrid setup. Basically have a container big enough to pack a paraglider wing into that can be dropped and deployed like a regular parachute. With enough wing area I am hoping to be able to make a free fall drop, open the canopy, then hunt thermals and stay up like a glider. I saw this done in full scale last year (albeit a hop and pop from a balloon, no a full free fall) and it got my interest going. Eventually I might go the FPV route with it.
