Here or some pics of my micro skydiver from RCSkydiving.com looking for a good landing. This diver weighs in at only 9.8 ounces and is 9 inches tall. because of its small size it doesn't need much of a plane to bring it up. I use the E-Flite Mini Ultra Stick with the 480 motor and the plane doesn't even feel it. I would like you to meet MJ (Micro Jumper)

Hey Bob,

Here is a new one for ya. Madian flight actually. This is a scratch built from Gitchel plans. Pictures were taken 7/05/2008 at the CORKS field in Central Ohio.

Got three flights in that day. After the third adjustment was able to get 360 to the left and right. Watch out Muncie, here I come...

First pic is the pre-flight, followed by three shot of the first flight.

And finally, since it is alway about Paul, here is a pic of one of Paul Reiner's jumpers making a nice landing.

Whadda mean "It's always about Paul" ? I resent that remark and besides, which "Paul" are you speaking about?
I am one of the most unassuming, reserved, circumspect, retiring, modest and nicest guy one would ever meet.

See above, Juan likes me!!

I agree, you resemble that remark.

And Juan doesn't have to put up with ya all that often, since he lives on the west coast.

Hey Mike,

I didn't think you were going to post those pics until after Muncie. Well, I guess the cats out of the bag now.

Well it only weighs ten onces ready to jump so it doesn't like wind. I am going to say no more than 5-7MPH and that may be pushing it. I did jump it at a feild that had trees on both sides (you have to dive in to land the planes but you can fly over them) so I couldn't feel the wind on the ground and I had to keep it facing into the wind to keep from losing ground when I flared both risers it actually flew backwards!

Ok you guy's are to easy, I have to let the cat out of the bag for real. We were trying to get everyone fired up and get something going here. These are really pictures that I took at the Gathering of Mustangs air show last year. I wish we were this good
The flag was a 5000 sq ft flag. And the planes are the Red Baron Stearman team. It was an amazing show.

It would be neat, may be use a couple of .40 sized planes with smoke to fly circles around a diver as it come down.....

Have tried that with smoke on the jump plane but the wind never cooperated and we gave it up. The jump plane (Giant Stinger with 4.2 engine) was too heavy with the smoke stuff and the added weight and drag from 3 jumpers! Need another plane dedicated to smoking. Even with the wind spreading the smoke fast, it still looked good. Anybody bringing a smoke plane?
We should also try to break our clubs record of 13 jumpers in the air at the same time. With Spectrum radios around, we may be able to go more than 13. What do you think???

The biggest problem I have is finding four pilots that can fly like that together. I know my two jump pilots could but I still need two more............cool effect though.


The funest game we have found to play now is to see if the plane can safely land before the diver when jumping from not too high. This sounds easy for the plane but if you leave the plane over the runway and freefall a little most of the time both are landing at the same time! I had to abort with the diver to stop from passing in front of the plane. I just thought I would throw this out there to see what kinda of games or competetions you all do when its a day of jumpiin.

Jim :
Between spectrum and 72mhz I think we could do that there are alot of option between the two system , would have to check aircrafts to see who still has 72 mhz becuase they would only interfere with each another. Juan and I will be there Friday morning
and will be staying at Days Inn maybe some of us could get together friday night at supper at a good resteruant and come up with some kind of figures .will have lift miester with me and I think juan is bringing his relemaster I carry two will check with juan he said something about setting it up for two jumpers.
