    RE: My hand made parachute

    Hi,

    Glad you found our gathering place. Hope the chute building is going well, it looks good.
    I will attempt to up load a picture of the plans that I built my first skydiver from, for some reason my uploads haven't been working very well.

    The skydiver with the camoflauge suit is the one made from the plans. (they are Wally Gitchels plans)
    mine only came out weighing around a pound and a half, which will be too light for the size of your chute.
    You can use the picture to get a basic design of what you need for the body to get the servos situated and have room for the receiver and battery pack.
    Be sure to use high torque metal gear servos.
    Instead of using the music wire for the arms and legs, I would suggest using plywood or some type of nylon if it is available to get the weight up.
    But remember, you can always add lead for weight later if you need it, but it is hard to make it weigh less after it is built.

    The pics of the one with the aluminum body has arms and legs made from industrial nylon.
    It is very tough but it weighs too much for any of the chutes that I currently have.

    Hope this is of some help to you, and good luck,

    GaryV
