    RE: Mississippi Altitude Record pix

    Banzai55,
    Thanks for the pictures. I like the ripcord on the jumpers harness. What were the "Mike" mods that you made to the jumper? I"m also using the Senior Telemaster with a Zenoah 26cc engine for power. My highest drop has been from 1620 recorded on an Avocet watch using the altimer function. Waiting to see pictures from the FlycamOne2. Are you using Spektrum radios on the plane and jumper. I"m using a Spektrum 7 for the airplane and the Spektrum DX6 for the my jumpers.

    The mods are to the arms to give more throw articulated elbow. The man uses a JR radio there is a chunk of lead in his gut for ballast might block a 2.4 radio.

    Hi

    Would the Telemaster with a 26cc be able to take up three jumpers?

    I want to get a plane and enjin that can take up three jumpers, but not sure what to go for.

    RE: Mississippi Altitude Record pix

    Riann,
    I am rigging my Telemaster with the 26cc engine for three jumpers. I don't think it should be any problem. I am using the ARF version of the Senior Telemaster and figure the total weight should be around 18 to 20 lbs total with three jumpers on the airplane. When I had a Super Tigre .75 engine on the plane I took up two jumper and while it was slow getting to altitude it did work. So I'm thinking with the 26cc engine it should work OK.
