Happy New Year fellow divers.

It doesn't seem like this forum gets much use since the advent of Facebook.

Are there people that still come here for info that don't do FB

I tried to put a few pics on here from New Years Day, but every time I load them they are upside down, even after turning them over in the program.

Well, I turned this one over in a different program, so lets see what happens when I post.

Hi Gary, Juan and the rest of you skydiving guys!

Want to wish all ya'll a very Happy New Year and many good jumps this year.

Mary and I have stayed around Alabama wishing we could visit the rallys--- but 22 years of walking in Army Infantry boots have taken their toll---baaad feet! Will try to do better this year. Sure did miss the rallys last year.

We are not facebook followers so have missed out on the news from the skydiving world. Nice to see a posting here by Gary and Juan. Keep it up.

All for now--will keep my eye on this forum.

Hi Jim,

I hope you and Mary are doing well, Did you notice the skydiver it was Mike 3.
I will post more on here this year for those that do not follow FB.
I still have all the Mike's. I sold one to Wes then bought it back.

FWIW, I got here via a google search, and had never considered RC skydiving. As a relatively new RC enthusiast, and a long-since-retired skydiver, I'm glad to have seen your post. My mind is cycling through possibilities.. Sewing my own mini parachute? Building an airplane to carry RC skydivers? FPV RC Skydiving?

Thanks for this.

I have had lots of fun with the Skydivers and met a lot of people and made some good friends.
We have an annual R/C Skydiver rally at the AMA field in Muncie IN.
The past few years it has been held on Labor Day weekend. So you have about 11 months to get something together and come join us.
It seems they block links Go to Facebook and search rc skydiving usa
