    RE: R/C Skyjumper possable closing

    I've been eyeballing a skyjumper for quite some time now. I even just finished up a plane specificlly for skyjumpers! I guess I better ***t or get off the pot! I really hope things work out for you!

    RE: R/C Skyjumper possable closing

    Thanks-Just looking at things one day at a time -as seen by the loss of some meets and number of folks showing up and in reg flying in general There seems to be a real slowdown in the gen sport and the Skydiving has not grown hardly any -even the forum here has been very quite this year - we all need to talk it up and try to get this part of the sport moving - Get out thought and suggestions out on here or contact each other and see it anything can pop up
    Im still here and not made any firm commitments yet

    RE: R/C Skyjumper possable closing

    Hey Don, I believe he ordered from us.

    Sorry to hear your not doing so well. A huge part of our business is done overseas, not here in the states. Also we make UAV parachutes and chutes for Academies all the time that keep us going between the skydivers. Selling skydivers is not going to make you a millionaire that is for sure. I think the American are preoccupied with the $99.00 world of RTF airplanes and helis. I'm not lowering my prices nor will I go to China to have my divers manufactured, so I guess we stick it out and see what happens.

    I have actually had a few people contact me that thought RCSkydiving was going out of business! The word has gotten around more than you think.

    RE: R/C Skyjumper possable closing

    Im still here and making a few chutes and have a full stock pile of jumper kits - I wont lower pricing eather and will just weather the storm and make a few chutes at a time as I usuley make several camo and other stock chutes in a bunch for stock

    Nice that some hace contacted you as no contact at this end and contact page on web site is working as I checked

    New drop plane is about ready to be shelved for the winter here in Minnesota and ready for next year and will see if a couple more jumpers can be added 3 doesent seem to bother it so I will see if it can handle 6 or so more lbs
