    cheap chute

    Hey guys!
    I was thinking of making a RC skydiver, but I gave up sewing the parachute.
    Is there a place where to buy a really cheap rc parachute? Everything I found was
    too expensive. I live in Czech rep. and a guy makes only the parachute for about $210.
    Please let me know if there is a cheaper option.
    Thank you!

    RE: cheap chute

    The price is about the same as any of ours are - You must know it takes many hours and costly materal to make these so to answer your question - You will have to make one yourself or buy a ready made and cost will be about the same plus any shipping cost

    There is no cheap time and materal any more

    RE: cheap chute

    Gozer1; A good made chute is not cheap and the price you have mentioned is that in your money evaluation or is that what you found out from the USA , you might get lucky where some one would sell you a good used chute that they would be willing to sell . I make chutes but they are all priced at $210.00 USA dollars. Will inguire around and see if I can find one foryou.

    RE: cheap chute

    We met two guys of the Czech Republic at the German rc skydiving Championships in Heringen this year ,
    they are selling chutes for the same price about $ 210 .
    The labor cost over there is 1/3 of that of the EU or the US so finding a "new chute" Cheaper is not realistic, or you buy crap !
    Look at some modelling sites in China and you find one cheaper "Only don't expect that it will fly like the EU or US stuff "
    The other option is buy a used one !

    RE: cheap chute

    Paul Fannin has made a few Chutes that have turned out nice, you will have to rig it yourself and tie the lines but I can see what he would charge to sew you one up if you want? Let me know. There are enough people in this that I am sure you can get someone to give you the measurements for the rigging.

    RE: cheap chute

    Jumpin Jack is nothing more than a knockoff off of the RCSkydiving Micro Jumper. I know because I designed the Micro Diver from the ground up. If you want an original and the BEST on the market buy from RCSkydiving.

    RE: cheap chute

    Hello again. I tried to sew it, but I had no plan, so it´s not working as I expected.
    So plan B is: "has anyone got a parachute that he doesn´t use and could sell to me?"
    Thanks for help.
    -Petr
