Default Never seen r/c skydiving couple ?'s

Hello all'
I am into land based r/c and was poking around and found this forum.Well i did look around a bit.This is what i firured out.You fly plane's either made for or converted to be able to drop a model man with a parachute,the jumper.Now i have scene r/c plane but not as big as the one's i have seen here,some nice lookin' planes they must be fast.How about that jumper,are you able to control the speed of the fall and the direction that the jumper is traveling?I saw a pic with a guy with it looked like two servo's in his back.Are you able to move the arms to pull the chute cord's to steer?Can you mount a camera on the jumper to take still pic's or video?Do a bunch of people gather with there jumpers and take turns jumping from a plane that keeps on running to keep taking all the jumpers up?Are people just jumpers or do most jump and fly? Just a few more ,how high do you jump from.How long does it take for the jumper to land how much hang time?Thank you for your patiants I'm just trying to learnwhat this is all about i think it's pretty interesting.I think it would be fun to have a guy that i can send up in a plane and be able to control where he lands!

If you go in rc skydiving forum you will find a thread that says rcskydiving jumpers and suppliers. You click on thier web pages and you will find a ton of information from these suppliers and the have videos showing thier products in action, and they will be glad to help you with the information you are needing.

Thank you for the reply Bob.I will go and check the vendors.These jumpers give me an idea for a water skier behind an r/c boat.
