I just purchased the Elite Skydiver Package from rcskydiving.com and have some basic questions that I thought I might pose to those who have experience. What position are the skydiver's arms set to while the skydiver is gliding down (chute already deployed) and not turning. Are his arms all the way up or in a midway position? I plan on doing mixing in the radio to control the arms. I have the computerized radio all programmed, but now I'm second guessing myself. It sounds like the arms should be all the way up when the chute opens so you don't break any gears in the servos. Are his arms in a middle position to glide normally..??
Secondly: How does the drop box connect to the skydiver? The metal box is only 2"x4"x6". The skydiver is substantial. So what fits into the box (just the chute) and how is the skydiver connected to the box?
I blew up the picture from rcskydiving.com and I can see the release mechanism, but what does it release...a rubber band..a strap...or what?
My only experience so far with RC skydiving has been with my brother's Hobby Lobby Junior Jumper loosely set on top of a Sig Kadet Senior. We rolled the Kadet to drop the jumper.
