Hi R/C Skydiver fans!!
'Been into aero modeling since I could slide a wing into the slot of a dimestore hand toss airplane and never quit!! 'Flown models, Got my Private license (SEL) and since I was 18 y.o., I've been,"SKYDIVING!!!!!!" the real thing!! A couple of guys at the DZ have built R/C skydivers and we'd throw em out of the jump plane for the guys on the ground, good fun. If it's too low a celeing to jump we'd break out the R/C's and still have fun. One thing for sure about Model Aviation over "the Real McCoy,"There isn't a Model Aviation crash I've been in that I havn't walked away from!!!!" Either way, "Lets be careful out there!!" FMI about Skydiving you can check out USPA.org (United States Parachute Assoc.) www.dropzone.com

from Perris CA. If you got questions about parachutes just ask, I was a Navy Parachute Rigger, a FAA Senior rigger since '71 and a FAA Master Rigger since '75. 3847 jumps logged.
