Default New Jumper for Summer 09!

Frank, our jumper design/modder, builder, and flyer has finished our new man. The only purchased parts were the shoes and helmet. The arms were cnc'd at a local shop per Frank's plans. The man weighs 3.75 pounds ready to drop and uses a PT Products canopy. He has the capability of flag deployment, and he is equipped with a Zlog altimeter for altitude and drop speed calculations. He also has a locator and can be equipped with a FlycamOne 2. He has three jumps from 1000 - 1200 feet and has functioned flawlessly! Thanks Mike! We are using a Senior Telemaster ARF with a 26cc gasser. The plane reaches 1000 feet in 30-45 sec!!! Great combination!

NICE!!!! Do you have a web site to order one or to check more about him..... I have been getting a bunch of practice performing surgery on my jumper... He has been in traction a bunch of times and he needs a replacement....

We do this for fun our man is based on the "Mike" jumper from Europe. Google em and check them out! The original jumper was published in RC Modler Magazine 1976. You can order a set of plans from the RCM plan site. The trick is in the arm action to get a maximum amount of extension. Lots of pix out there.
