Default Release Pin

Thanks to the help of many I have the flag attachment figured out. I would like to see some pictures on how you are releasing your pin from the pack. It seems that some are using a switch that will work twice when they are releasing the flag... once for the chute and then once for the flag. I have a Futaba 6axs could I modify it for such a switch? I gues I need one servo that will release both packs at different times.

Any pictures on your chute release system would be great.

Thanks

Brad

Brad. Can't help you on the Fu transmitterI'm a JR man! Most of us use a dedicated servo
on a two position switch to release the chute then release the flag after the chute has deployed.
If you have a two position switch that can be programmed, you got it made. I first tried opening the chute and dropping the flag with the same one position switch-that didn't work too good although I did get a FEW clean openings, the % is pretty low. Too many
times the flag tangles with the chute causing a streamer-not good! Good luck! Jim
