    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. 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
