    another Dirt Dive.....

    I am not doing something right....... UGH.

    The first Jump was my fault... Can't deploy the chute if the switch is left off on "Super Dave"....

    2nd and 3rd jumps were, Line overs... so he came down gently but no control.....

    4th jump....good opening and landed right at my friends feet.

    I only have one plane to drop him with at my field so I fly the plane and I ask any of the local fliers if they want a shot flying Super Dave.... I do disclose that he is a little suicidal at times.

    5th Jump..... Line over and he landed hard and broke a leg.....

    Leg repaired and....

    6th jump was a dirt dive..... No chute deployment.....

    Right now he is in ICU.... He broke a leg, an arm his head fell off and his entire body shattered.... Ugh.... We can rebuild him.... We have the technology.... His name..... Mr. Steve Austin!!!!! We'll have to see about this..... Right now the "Dr" is building a Top Flite Piper Arrow2 so Super Dave is going to have to wait before he can be rebuilt.

    I'll work on pictures of the carnage next week some time.

    Wow
    That sure is not a great record you would want to keep up. Few things to look at. Are you using a normal chute?

    Don't give up yet.

    RE: another Dirt Dive.....

    Yeah... I'm getting used the the packing process.... while I look at the way I tuck the lines into the canopy so that when it deploys the lines are clear and not tangled.

    I'll have to put him back together first..... It's in the hobby... It's way to much fun to quit!!!
