Default RC Skydiving with a BubbyBox?

I have a jumper that I use to let members of my club try RC Skydiving. I don't use a Buddy Box. I show them how the controls work and turn them loose. To date all the jumpers have landed on the runway. The advantage I have at the club field is that there is alot of open space. So even if the jumper lands off the runway there isn't much possibility of him landing in trees. I would think using a Buddybox would depend on how much open space there is at your field. If you are talking about letting a newbie who has never used a radio control unit then a Bubbybox would be the way to go.

I bought a used skydiver the kind made in England.
I need help packing the chute as sometimes it doesn't open. Any suggestions?
