    RE: New HALO jumper

    Thanks Juan and Riaan. He had 4 successful jumps then did a low altitude hook turn and hit the ground hard on the 5th jump. Suffered a broken arm but I'll have him fixed up and ready to go again next week. No jump pics Juan but I did get some video from my Iphone. Problem is the jumper is barely visible in it; I'll see if I can do some editing to bring him in closer with some digital zoom.

    RE: New HALO jumper

    Cpig, where did you get the Halo jumper from? I have searched everywhere I can't find anything that looks as good as this one. If you know what brand it is would greatly help. Thanks

    RE: New HALO jumper

    Thanks,
    I put him together using all 1/6th scale stuff that I pieced together off of ebay. (Except the chute which I got from Dave). Dave, I believe the body was BBI or Dragon. I dremeled out his torso - shoulder area to fit servos and put the micro receiver on his back. His arms were hollow so I filled them with epoxy to make them solid in order to drill a hole through them so I could get to the servo spline screw. The 300mah battery pack fits perfectly in his leg pouch and a switch fits in his ammo pouch.
