    Jump number two......

    By all accounts My life is far too busy to get good at this yet. Full time military job, finishing college....etc.etc.....

    Well I worked on getting my 1/4 Piper Cub working and I was able to get 2 reliable flights without "Super Dave".... His first jump about 2 or 3 years ago was a dirt dive (left his Rcv'r off, He drop right where you release it....:-D )

    I loaded Super Dave up and off we went... He dropped like a champ and (oh I'm flying the CUB and a club member is flying the skydiver) I began my decent. I think that there was a line over because only half the chute inflated. No damage just not a full fledged jump yet.....

    The drop plane quit in flight.. Dead Stick..... It was on a go around and I was down wind..... Hold what you got.... maybe 2 to 5 mph at the time.... down wind landing.... The landing gear wire broke so now I'll be looking for another set of landing gear.

    But Super Dave dropped and it was another GREAT day of flying!!!! :-D This is a GREAT country we live in!!!!

    RE: Jump number two......

    I just got started in RC Skydiving and was pleased to see your post. It seems that not many people participate in this forum. I've had two successful jumps in the last two weeks with a Charly I bought from a nice man here on RCU. I know, like RC planes, sooner or later I will have my "dirt dive." But for now I keep my fingers crossed.

    They do dirt dive.... BUT unlike my Heli or my planes... This guy survived... and just like Steve Austin....We have the technology, we can build him and make him better than he was before..... (I'm not so sure about that part).... It's the $6 Dollar man!!!! ooops, That was the lead into the show 6 MILLION dollar man... I was close :-D

    RE: Jump number two......

    Hey Hunster,

    I see you have an old design setup on your chute slider. Either fasten it to the bottom permanently or drop me an email and I will send you an actual stationary slider to install. We got rid of the working sliders because of constant tangles and lineovers. They worked great during dead calm conditions, but add a little wind and the success drops drastically.
