Default RCSkydiving at Toledo

I have included a few pictures of our booth at Toledo Weak Signals Expo. The Super Giant Scale Jumper is actually 3 feet tall and has a chute span of 7 feet!!!!!! We had a great time and I would like to Thank ALL the people who came to the booth to say HI.

Here is the picture of our version of the Jet Man. He got alot of attention at the show. He is fully functional, from flying under the power of the twin ducted fan to deploying the parachute to make a perfect landing under canopy.

Neat stuff. I hope your display was successful for you. I just ordered one of your Micro Divers and am excited about it.

We had a good time. The crowd was down from past years, but we kinda expected that. Most people are still blown away by the idea of R/C Skydiving in general, if you can do it in real life there is someone making it R/C. We are actually working on vertual camera setup so people can have the jumpers point of view.

Has JetMan flown yet? I'd love to see some video of that! Yves Rossy's flights are inspiring stuff for lame youtube lurkers like myself.

We have tested the wing out so far, all the other tests have been on paper. Our Ohio weather really sucks for testing in the winter months, all 8 of them. [:'(] Weather is finally starting to break and he will be getting his maiden flight real soon. We will definately be posting video.

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