Default Great afternoon skydiving

OK, so it was 90+ and humidity 80%, but we had fun! Loadmaster fuse, telemaster wing, and a CRRC 26 cc provided 10 flights to altitude. Frank is the man! Check out the catch! Had to death dive to get on the ground to take the pix.

That looks great fun.

Do you have any tips for someone who is interested in this ... but has no experience?

A history: in 1977, Frank was in high school taking skydiving lessons. I was teaching science and flying RC. I found an article on rc skydiving w a plan in a 1976 RC Modeler mag and off we went. We did jumps till Frank went to college three years later. We probably logged 60 jumps in that time. We went our separate ways w Frank finishing school and seriously winning bike races. In 2007, during a mid-life I went skydiving and was pumped! Called Frank and he asked about rc skydiving, and by now we have about 1500 jumps. We are a good team - he is serious about his divers , and I love planes and gadgets. We have had every failure possible but have learned from each one. After 40 years of teaching chem and physics and school administration I am retired! Now I build airplanes!!
