Here is the newest edition to our range of RC Skydivers just for interest sake.
After being inspired by Theo Vassen's Large skydiver, we decided end of last year to start on our own XL large skydiver. After getting some advice from Theo we decided to give it a go and we doubled the size of our standard RC Skydiver.[8D]
Our specs on the diver is as follow: It stands 90cm (35.4inches) tall, weight is 6kg's(13.3pounds) and has a chute with a wingspan of 3 meters (9.84 feet). To put that into perspective, my son is 3 and a half years old and fits into the divers jumpsuit as can be seen on the photos here. Theo's diver is 80cm (31.5inches) tall, weighs 4,5kg (9.9pounds) and chute was 2,75 meter (9.02 feet)wingspan. Theo's one is still the biggest one flying/jumping as we were not able to do the maiden jump, the plane developed some technical issues and untill then the diver is also grounded. [
] However Riaan and myself just wanted to share it with the rest of you guys!!
It made its 1st public appearance at the Henley Airshow last the weekend, here are some photos of the diver!!
